Commemorating the 80th Anniversary of D-Day

ADOT Proudly Support Blind Veterans UK on the 80th Anniversary of D-Day.

On the 6th June, we honour the bravery and sacrifice of those who stormed the beaches of Normandy 80 years ago. Their courage and dedication to freedom will never be forgotten.

In tribute, ADOT proudly supports the charity Blind Veterans UK by donating airtime to their special awareness campaign at Outernet, London. Come down to see it on the state-of-the-art VISTA screens and learn more about the incredible work they do to support those who have served.

Blind Veterans UK displayed the portraits of fourteen veterans who served in Normandy and now receive the charity’s life-changing support. The portraits were taken by award winning photographer Richard Cannon and featured George Chandler, a 99 year old veteran, who served as a gunner on a torpedo boat during D-Day.

The touching display at Outernet honours the legacy of all veterans and directs people to the charity’s website to read their D-Day stories at blindveterans.org.uk/dday80

Blind Veterans UK supports thousands of blind veterans across the country, but knows there are many thousands more who still need its support to rebuild their lives after sight loss.
