A WINDOW display commemorating the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings has been created in a charity shop window in Warrington.

Cat Rescue charity shop on Orford Lane created the display ahead of the landmark anniversary on Thursday, June 6.

The Normandy landings in 1944 was the largest seaborne invasion in history and began the liberation of France in the Second World War.

This year marks the 80th anniversary of D-Day, and decorations have already started being put up to mark the occasion.

In Cat Rescue, a poster lined with the flag of the allies who took part in the landings can be seen.

The display is also surrounded by red, white and blue balloons and union flags.

Bunting is also hanging in the charity shop, and a vase with poppies can also be seen on display.

Josie Mannion, 80, volunteers at the charity shop often creates displays for Christmas, Halloween and Valentine’s Day.

With help from Melissa Mclarney, Sandra Brown and Anne Ogden, who also volunteer at the shop, Josie created the new display, which has received hundreds of positive comments.

“All the customers love it and people who have seen it on Facebook have said they love it,” said Josie.

Josie, who has a craft room in her house, makes all the decorations herself, including the poppies currently on display.

“We’re like a little family there and we just like doing nice things,” she said.
