Mr Spanish, I am well up for it, unless Sunray has put my name in first.

He'd better be quick, because I am about to input my stuff. No peeking :twisted:

Oh hang on, we need Mr Lee or Sgt Slingsby's details for the first bit.

Here's my effort, all cut and paste:

What do we do? We provide respite holidays for the families of British Military wounded [of all Services] ... and, sadly, the widows and the kids.

Help Them Out deals with the cases that either lie outside the normal remit of the main Service Charities, or require a faster response than they can usually provide. Sometimes the cases require financial assistance, or a little bit of nudging in the right direction for long-term help, or the application of a bit of expertise from the website membership.

It is particularly useful that several members are also actively involved in work with the other Service Charities, so that our rapid response can be turned into long-term solutions by the major organisations. We have a theme name for this part of our activities, and that is 'Help Them Out'

..."In 2009 our interventions have stopped 11 repossessions, 7 evictions and have homed 6 homeless ex servicemen. We've also dealt with 14 bankruptcies and countless more IVAs. We've stopped 26 bailliff cases (one way or another, not often the most straightforward way). We've provided ... transport, furniture, white goods, bedding, disabled equipment, laptops, desk tops, phones, alarms, utility payments, TVs, stopped medal sales, replaced medals, moved house for people, referred over 35 cases to SSAFA and RBL, decorated, moved rubbish, visited and shown care to elderly veterans. And we have provided ... short-term B&Bs, school uniforms, clothing, refuge for wives who have needed removing from hostile home environments, Christmas and Birthday presents and Christmas food and vouchers



I thought I would add another expression of gratitude and hopefully add a little reality to this incredibly generous and sadly necessary enterprise. The darkest hours of PTSD few can even begin to imagine, the depths that these wounded minds plumb are almost impossible to endure. Having to witness someone so courageous, exceptionally intelligent, talented and decent involuntarily destroy himself is heartbreaking, particularly when your help will only go as far as they are able to accept it - the revered pride and self-reliance so integral to the Armed Forces psyche ends up being another barbed stick to beat yourself with when you're mentally injured. Thanks to YOUR assistance He is not alone. Please, please continue to spread this love around!


Holidays for Heroes and Help Them Out do more than just care, they make the extra effort. Flash to bang is the way ahead.



Shall I submit it, or offer to kill people via Um Bongo??

I am getting well clever at this cut and paste, I'm going to add:

One of the early cases involved the family of a serviceman who had been seriously wounded whilst serving in one of those sandy places.

To give him and his family an opportunity to get their lives back to something resembling normality, one of the website members offered them a free holiday in his apartment on a golf resort in Spain. The website's membership contributed to the cost of air fares and car hire, and the rest is history. We now have some three dozen villa and apartment owners in Spain who are providing free accommodation for the wounded and their families [and for widows and families as well].

Our clients either pay their own air fares, or get financial assistance from Regimental or Corps Associations, or are supported by yet another rattle of the "Begging Bowl" on the website. And Holidays4Heroes picks up the bill for cleaning the accommodation after they leave, so there's one more thing the families don't have to worry about.

During 2008, some 80 families were given a break from the routines of hospital visits and learning to live with injuries to, or the loss of, serving personnel. In 2009 a further 61 families benefitted, together with around 60 who received rapid response welfare assistance under the "Help them out" banner.

Looking to 2010, the year starts with 56 families earmarked for assistance - and that number will sadly increase as the year goes on.




To all, my husband was injured during a mortar attack on his camp during his tour of Iraq, luckily his injuries were nothing that wouldn't heal in time and he was alive unlike so many unfortunate others. I can't even begin to express our gratitude on behalf of my husband and two children who deserve this gift like so many others out there so thank you from the bottom of our hearts. God bless the fallen, keep safe the lads out there and most important keep on smiling!
Tell anyone I am nice, and you all get Um Bongo.

I'm good and will show my pants for money, but I've chopped half of that already!

Shall I just tell them I will get my kit off for Twiglets?

I'm trying mate. Do you want to send them the linky things and I will just offer a pair of my used pants?

(It's the NAAFI - shut up cleverheads, I don't talk to poor people).

I may or may or not have been naughty.

I cannot nominate HolidaysforHeroes or Helpthemout in less than a 1000 words.



Google Helpthemout, they are the obvious winners, and I will come back from the Falklands and sit at the side of your bed and stare at you whilst you sleep. All I need is an address and a bottle of fizzy pink wine and your luck is in.



Many thanks.
Is that a bit too scary?

That dog link was shite.

I might have sussed it though:

I have submitted my bit and even quoted my Royal British Legion number and told them because I am RBL member I know what I'm talking about.

So you can't get more above board than that then.
