Whilst we are all enjoying the bitchfest in other threads the other part of the NAAFI and this online community seems to excel at is the ability to react to fast balls an help pals and ex colleagues out. Spanish Dave had a call in this morning. Soldier: twenty years plus service many of which in a pretty demanding role and background. Seriosuly injured in an RTA and is being supported financially by his old unit (Who incidentally are pulling a blinder for him) Whilst I can't and won't go into the whys and whats, this fella and his family for supporting him really do deserve a break...... So I assured the welfare officer that a trip to Le Torre was in the bag. Family of four and a hire care, and because this bloke is on the final skin of his uppers and because the apartments are self catering a few Euros to help with the food bill we need about Â£650-Â£700 Hopefully this is the last time we need to rattle using my details prior to the Help them out brand, account and organisation goes live.

In your own time, cough up you cnuts!
