Barratt Homes installs Tommy figures at development in Bourne to mark 76th anniversary of VE Day
Housing developer Barratt Homes has installed Tommy figures at its development in Bourne to mark the 76th anniversary of VE Day, which was on Saturday (May 8).
Barratt Developments was invited to become the Tommy Club’s first corporate patron through its relationship with the the Royal British Legion Industries. The housebuilder donated £100,000 as an acceptance gift and has purchased Tommy Club figures from the RBLI to help them raise money.
The Tommy is now a universal symbol of gratitude and commemoration to all those who have served and sacrificed for our freedom and some of the statues have been installed at The Furlongs on Elsea Park.
Managing director of Barratt Homes North Midlands Mark Cotes said: "Not only will the funding help to support the fantastic work they are doing, the figures will also encourage our staff and residents to take a moment of reflection for those who served for our freedom.”
