08 May Keep Smiling Through
In the midst of the current coronavirus gloom, we were thrilled to be asked to design a website for Britain’s most famous singer and WWII Forces’ Sweetheart, Dame Vera Lynn. Ronin was approached by the trustees of Dame Vera’s charity to build the site and set up a Just Giving page to allow members of the public to donate to the good causes she supports. What a privilege!
The biggest challenge for our team was to do justice to Dame Vera, so we proceeded with great care. The second biggest challenge for Ronin was to complete the site inside two weeks. At 9.00pm on BBC One this evening, 103 year-old Dame Vera will sing her iconic wartime song, ‘We’ll Meet Again’ from the window of her home in Sussex, for the bank holiday VE Day celebrations. We’re pleased, and a little bit relieved, that the site will be live next week for people to make donations. Dame Vera’s daughter and carer Virginia says, “We are very happy with the website and I want to thank Steve and his team for moving matters forward so quickly.” Thank you Ginny, and thank you Dame Vera.
