Homelessness charity Alabare are asking you to send your birthday wishes to him today (Thursday 30th April).

Bill is a former Royal Navy veteran whose service career saw him involved in the D-Day landings as well as many other global tours. 

Today (Thursday 30th April) marks Bill's 96th birthday

He is currently based in supported accommodation in Salisbury after getting help from Alabare, while they are trying to find somewhere more permanent for him to live. 

But his two daughters both live abroad, and due to the current restrictions, they are unable to visit him and won't be able to celebrate in person. 

Alabare are still supporting Bill with food and supplies and want to do something special for his big day. 

So they want you to help brighten his day with a birthday message, which you can leave on Spire FM's Facebook page or on the form below

All of us here at Spire FM want to wish Bill a very happy birthday.
