Tuntum marks Windrush 75

Date published: 23rd June 2023

The 22nd June 2023 is National Windrush Day and this year marks 75 years since the MV Empire Windrush arrived in the UK, marking a seminal moment in our shared history.

Celebrations will take place at projects and events throughout the country to promote community cohesion and understanding of the Windrush story.

The Windrush generation – those original pioneers who came from across the Caribbean – helped to rebuild the nation following the Second World War, and they and their descendants continue to contribute to all aspects of British life.

Tuntum’s founders were from the Windrush generation. Without them, Tuntum, as it is today, wouldn’t exist, providing 1600 homes and community services in the East Midlands.

We marked the 75th anniversary by turning the corridors in our Head Office into a gallery, watching films about Windrush and having a Caribbean lunch together.
