Folks, we're on a roll here!

The week after the fun and excitement at Weymouth, Holidays for Heroes will have a stall for two days at Tankfest, Bovington. If anyone would be free to help man the stall for an hour or so over that period, please let me know, either by PM or on this thread.

There will be no need for 'setting up', as tables are provided, but someone to chat to punters, sell merchandise, or even make tea would be most welcome.

Cake will of course be provided.

A small bump to catch any evening arrsers who might like to volunteer.

All indoor work, no heavy lifting, lots of cake.

All this and raising money for an excellent cause!

I'm away but my stand in is available. I'll tell her to put the date in her diary.

Any more volunteers? Tankfest is a fab event, and I'd only ask for an hour or two of your time.

Any more volunteers? This is indoors, no lifting, no bunting and no chugging, just selling stuff from a table in the foyer of the Tank Museum itself.

Holidays for Heroes has helped over fifty families this year - it all takes money, and here's an opportunity to help them raise a little more.

Thanks if you can offer even a short stint.

This is all booked now, folks. All we need is helpers.

Tankfest is a great event, with tanks, re-enactors, demonstrations and lots of stalls (including the one raising money for 'Holidays for Heroes'). If you come along, there will be plenty to do in the time when you're not helping on the stall.

Sorry I didn't see this sooner, Mr. Ark. Of course it will be great for you to do an hour on the day. All assistance is welcome! Look forward to seeing you on the day. If you PM me nearer the time I can give you a contact phone number.

We now have our joining instructions, and we'll be sited in the Museum Foyer, right opposite the lovely Malcy of Malcyart, who is one of our good supporters.

Thanks to Sue and Holly at the Bead Base, Carol the Bead Lady and Ann, one of Sue and Holly's customers, we have lots of lovely beaded jewellery and trinkets to sell at Tankfest. We have a great pitch, some lovely 'Holidays for Heroes' merchandise, comfy chairs, and free cake.

So far the team is
Me
Shopgirl
ark-angel
My offspring
Alfredo
Steve the Photographer

supported by Sgt Slingsby, Cpl Horsa and MCpl Amy.

Can anyone else spare time from watching the Rotten Ruritanians and the Remarkable Re-Enactors to sell bits and bobs or operate a tombola? All welcome.

Horsa's No 1 Fan and I are helping the RBL at Tankfest so we'll certainly pop over and say hello. Depending on breaks etc we might be able to provide some help.

That would be lovely, F_W. Look forward to seeing both of you.


(We know you're only after cake ... :) )

Folks, just a small reminder that Tankfest is next weekend. Helpers would be welcome, but if you don't have time to help please make time to drop by and say hello, have a go on our tombola or even buy some of the lovely beaded jewellery donated by our lady supporters at The Bead Base, Basingstoke, and Carol's Beading Classes.

We're all set for a lovely weekend at Tankfest. Any arrsers who would like to pop in and see us in the Museum Foyer would be most welcome. There may even be spare cake.Even if you don't visit the Hols For Heroes stall, it's a cracking day out, and truly 'fun for all the family'.

Not sure where the RBL stall is. We're indoors, in the Foyer of the museum itself. You have to pass us to get into the Trenches :)

Excellent.

A Massive of Bears ... I'm loving it!!

I have no idea which Bear goes where after this!!

I think the plot is ...
Slingsby to shopgirl
Braille back to H1F
Amy to RAFbrat
Horsa ... dunno. Back to HQ?

Let me know if I'm wrong, Ladies. xxx

RAFB says they're having a good day, although inside the hangar is rather warm.
All rather knackered after last weekend at Weymouth, but spirits are high.
Any visitors to TankFest at Bovington on Sunday will find the Hols4H Team by the hangar entrance.

Out.

Whatever you say re: bears. I'll make sure they get to the right places after the weekend.
