One thousand of our islands older residents living in Guernsey care homes and in the community will receive a free afternoon tea hamper, gifted from the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture to enjoy on Liberation Day.

The hampers, which are sponsored by Guernsey Post will include scones, Guernsey jam, tea, sugar, milk, butter and cream. Guernsey Dairy is also supporting this initiative by donating the dairy items. The tea hampers will be delivered on the morning of Liberation Day arriving in an authentic-looking Red Cross Box with a ration card inside.

The Liberation Day organisers will also deliver nearly 200 afternoon teas to Age Concern group meetings during the week leading up to Liberation Day and 134 recipients of Meals on Wheels will be given slices of Guernsey Gauche, tea and butter in an individual, authentic war time box.

Deputy Sue Aldwell, Committee for Education, Sport and Culture, said: 'This year we are so pleased to be working with Age Concern and the WRVS Meals on Wheels service to make sure that even more of our older residents of Guernsey can enjoy afternoon tea and join in with the celebrations for Liberation Day. Many will also be able to view the Island-wide cavalcade from the comfort of their own homes too'.

Dawn Gallienne, Head of Corporate Engagement at Guernsey Post said: 'Guernsey Post are delighted to be able to take part in this initiative by delivering the afternoon tea hampers for our older generation to enjoy on Liberation Day. Liberation Day is such an important day in our island's history, and we hope everyone enjoys the gesture.'
