75th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings 1944-2019

As we prepare for the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day and Normandy 75 Campaign, AWARD is proud to announce its continuing support of The Spirit of Normandy Trust and the jointly commissioned Normandy 75 Badge to help raise funds and awareness of the important and historical event as a legacy for the next generation. 

Over the years, AWARD has raised over £90,000 for the Normandy Veterans and the Trust from the commemorative Normandy Campaign Medal and related items.

The exclusive, thoughtfully designed badge, depicts the colours of the services with the 5 bold white stars representing the five landing beaches and identifying the Allied forces' vehicles and tanks. At its centre is the striking Normandy 1944 crest. It is featured on a selection of products to help raise vital funds for the Spirit of Normandy Trust. View the Normandy 75 Collection

This year, as we commemorate 75 years since D-Day and the Normandy Campaign and mark this important moment in British military history, I am proud to confirm AWARD's continued support as sponsors of The Spirit of Normandy Trust. The Spirit of Normandy Trust supports the welfare for veterans and promotes educating the younger generation and the general public about the Normandy Campaign, the events leading up to them and their historical significance during World War II. The Trust also maintains the Normandy Campaign Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum and on-going maintenance of the Montgomery Statue in Normandy. We will also be playing a leading role in the organisation of the 75th Anniversary Commemorations in France and the UK including the Normandy Veterans' Reunion Weekend in Portsmouth 6th - 8th September. It is hoped that you will be keen supporters of the Trust through the purchase of the official Normandy 75 Commemorative Journal and the 75th Anniversary items.
