December 9th will be the anniversary of the start of the 'Helpthemout / Sgt Slingsby / Holidays4heros' outfit. On the 9th I, along with Spanish Dave, Blue Sophist and Meridan will post a statement of achievements and accounts for the year also coinciding with the launch of Holidays4heros and all the Gucci account trimmings and grown upliyness that goes with it. Last year, part of the icing on the cake and the biggest reward was sending servicemen in trouble and their families a bit of something to make them aware they were being thought about, cared about and valued. We did this in a few ways. We provided Chrimbo dinner, pressies for the kids, vouchers etc etc. This year, whilst sending troops etc to Spain, whilst dealing with debt cases, handling evictions we've picked up a few friends..... friends who are better off for the donations from you guys and the efforts of Dave and the team..... They still aren't out of the woods but are very much stood on their own feet. This year, like last we'd like to give them a bit of a festive boost and provide them with a bit of something for their kids (Nothing extravagant, there are alot of them ) and for those who are on their uppers, provide Tesco / Sainsburys vouchers enabling them to have Christmas dinner on us. We can only do this with your help. If you've got a buckshee couple of quid, lob it our way, let us put it to use and put a smile on a serviceman's face. We've got injured toms and JNCOs whose payouts mean they don't have a lot to spare. We've got blokes in shelters who might benefit from their hipflask being topped up. Kids who lost their daddy and wives and mums who have lost sons and husbands. I can't put an amount on what we need because its never going to be enough, not wanting to sound ungrateful by any means, but there are a lot of blokes out there and we can't get round them all. Just the ones who we know about, who's welfare officers have got in touch.
