    Just as we thought we were able to knock off after tha auctions had finished.

    Soldier, 24 yrs served, RLC & some Jock Inf Regt been made homeless two days ago currently out in the cold in North Yorkshire.

    There is no chance I can house him today but we can take him off the streets and into a BnB where he can be fed & watered and given shelter until SSAFA & RBL kick in.

    Just what the QRF aspect of Hols4heroes was set up for.

    I know its Christmas and know times aren't easy, so we are grateful for anything we can get out mits on.

    I reckon 10 - 12 nights in a BnB with evening meals thrown in will be around £3 - £400 quid.

    Can we help?

    Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a homeless trog :D

    I thought we'd got away lightly with the welfare side this December, meaning that upto 17:00 last night £7685 had but sent to places its needed and spread over 65 seperate cases.

    Giz a lift with this one and I promise to leave you alone and stop scrounging for a bit.
     
  2. £20 sent. Wish him a Merry Christmas from us.

  13. Some ££ incoming through PAYPAL.

    Don't forget. If sending through PAYPAL, select Payment type PERSONAL and then GIFT and Paypal will not deduct their fees from your payment.

    I think we can call Job jobbed in this.

    All sorted for 10 days and currently sat tucking into a steak and chips, £100 in his back pocket and a temp roof over his head while we get his housing sorted.

    I was tempted to leave the loggie cnut out in the snow until Boxing day....... just for having ash1t capbadge :D

    Thanks for a rapid responce and thanks for pretty much every single reaction to every begging scrounging thread I've put up this year.

    Its been a good year.

    Have a good one each of you, even the cnuts I don't like :D
