A Guiding Light to ensure you don’t forget to send your dad a card and present this Father’s Day

To help remind people of the upcoming holiday that honours fatherhood and paternal bonds, Royal Mail has released music and lyrics titled ‘Guiding Light’, in a contemporary nod to Father’s Day this coming Sunday.

Harrow postwoman, Amira Rahmoune, is a rapper and music composer in her spare time. She’s written the music for the 90-second film, created internally by Royal Mail, which features her reflecting on the challenges of the last year.

The film also includes a starring role from her own father, Mahommed, as well as poignant and personal images submitted from Royal Mail colleagues with their own dads, with a special section dedicated to those who have sadly recently lost their father.

Amira, who is planning to celebrate with Mahommed this weekend, says the team have been busy with lots of card deliveries ahead of Sunday.

‘We have a cheeky BBQ planned, but it depends on the weather. Hopefully we won’t have to move it indoors!’
