Keyline has donated £10,000 of tickets to give over 200 deserving veterans, along with their partners and carers, the chance to attend a tribute show to honour ‘Forces’ Sweetheart’ Dame Vera Lynn, who turns 100 next week, and raise funds for her legacy charity – The Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity.
The show – 100: A Tribute to Dame Vera Lynn – takes place on 18 March at the London Palladium, and will see a number of celebrities come together to tell the story of Dame Vera Lynn’s incredible career. Celebrities who will be performing include Aled Jones, Bradley Walsh, Russell Watson, Alexander Armstrong, Anthony Andrews, Simon Callow, Wayne Sleep and Brian Blessed OBE among others.
The collection of tickets donated by Keyline has been distributed to veterans – many of who have disabilities as a result of wounds they suffered while serving their country – via The Taxi Charity for Military Veterans and The Not Forgotten Association.
Kieran Griffin, managing director at Keyline, said: “The sacrifices that have been made by so many of the men and women who have served our country, and the care and support that Dame Vera herself has given them over many years, are simply immeasurable.
“We are delighted to be supporting The Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity, the outstanding work it does on behalf of children with cerebral palsy and treating some of our incredible veterans to a ‘night to remember’.”
Tickets to the show start at £50 and are still available to purchase from www.dameveralynn100.com. Proceeds will be donated to The Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity, which supports children with cerebral palsy and other motor-learning disabilities.
