Hols4heroes (Falklands Vet flogging gongs)

Falklands Sapper flogs his gongs

I am reluctant to sell but have been diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia and would like to use the funds from this auction towards the cost of taking my wife and three children to Disneyland, Florida.
As it happens Florida is amongst our list of venues for next year. Today will be mainly spent trying to convince him to cancel the auction and keep his gongs and assuring him that he will be able to send him. (Theme parks over there have also informed us that our veterans and cases will gain entry to their facilities free of charge)

Failing that it looks like we'll have to win the auction, have his medals given back to him (After being mounted in time for Nov 11th)

Personally I'd do the same, my medals would go long before anything else if it meant providing for my family, however, this appears to be exactly what Holidays4heroes is about.

There is only one day of the auction left, lets see if we can make a difference to this poorly Sapper, his family and his self pride.

copied onto the Sappers Forum and incoming via Paypal.

I can probably get a free Vila next to Disney for a week too.

Splendid, just emailled Delta and American Airlines, provided they don't drive our Sapper into a skyscraper I've attempted to blag some discount of transatlantic flights.

Let me know when you are thinking of and I will see what dates I can blag.

I've thrown in a few quid. It's good to see people supporting our lads. I hope the family have a great trip despite the difficult circumstances and I'm sure they'll be well received across the pond.

Come on fellas hands in pockets even a few squids will help. we CANNOT let him sell these.

Really fricks me off though when you see things like this but the government will happily spend money to send 'thugs and reprobates' on jollies to try and reform them...cnuts.

Absolutely right. If he is as ill as stated then his kids should inherit these, not a medal collector!

Dig deep.

Hols4heroes/The Artist Formerly Know as M_D_N,

Would you guys at Hols 4 Heroes mind if a % of the Donations to yourselves from the soon to be on sale Veterans Coin, went to this Falklands Island Vet?

Please PM myself and MM...

Has anyone managed to get in touch with the poor chap and let him know of Arrse's concern?

Good luck to both him and Holidays 4 Heroes!

Have sent him an E-Mail through Ebay, also sent the alarm bells ringing through many Sapper Sites and FB etc.

Lets not let this happen! anyone who donates let Hols4Heroes know by adding a message when you donate "To Help Falklands Veteran"
