Our Patron

Dame Vera Lynn DBE

Dame Vera Lynn CH DBE OStJ kindly became our patron in 2008, until she passed away earlier this year.

We are still delighted about that. The foreword of our first book, published in October 2008, was written by Dame Vera too.

We will cherish the years that Dame Vera was our patron. A lady whose example of kindness, care and empathy for our troops has been so strikingly evident for well over 50 years. We can do no better than to quote her most recent comment supporting our work.

"I have been following FLOW’s excellent work for some time now and have always been impressed by the way that they provide for people who have been affected by war.

As a musician, I understand the huge power of art – it can heal wounds, bring people together, and preserves memories for generations to come.

By offering a chance for people to express themselves through poetry and stories, FLOW offers the comfort of community and communication, and this should always be celebrated.

I would like to offer my thanks to everyone who supports this worthy cause and I wish FLOW all the best as it attempts to reach even more people around the world.”

We are privileged to have had such a wonderful person as our Patron, and we offer our deepest thanks for all the support we have been thrilled to receive by Dame Vera, Virginia her daughter, and Susan her PA.
