    Ideal Home Show 2011
    Dear All,
    ABF The Soldiers’ Charity are once again the nominated charity for the Ideal Home Show 2011. Our friends at ABF The Soldiers’ Charity have asked us to forward the following message to the members of our mailing list;
    “We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to give up 3 hours of their time to help The Soldiers’ Charity raise as much money as possible from collections at the Ideal home show which will go towards the Ideal Homes for Heroes Appeal that helps serving , former soldiers and their families who need home adaptations, essential home furnishings and equipment. Whether that be a helping a homeless veteran who has suffered from depression and addiction move into permanent accommodation buy supplying essential items for the home to a young soldier who has lost a limb as a result of service in Afghanistan and needs a walk in bathroom so that he can wash independently and with dignity.
    In return for the 3 hours of time each volunteer will get free entrance to the show on the day they volunteer. We ask volunteers to arrive 15 minutes before they are due to start their volunteer shift.
    If you are interested in joining the volunteer team please contact amiller@soldierscharity.org
    The dates are; 11th – 27th March 2011, weekdays and weekends. Show opening times – 10 am – 6pm (Thursday and Friday late opening to 9pm)”
