Hols4heroes (Finishing the summer)

#1
Now that the summer hols are here, we've got the final 11 or so families who I have placed, but am struggling to raise air fares.

Villas, vehicles, insurances, days out etc are all catered for, am just trying to physically get them to Spain.

Below I've put a brief breakdown of the first six cases, more to follow.

1. L/cpl (infanteer) plus wife and baby. Double above knee amputee, injured in blast in Afghan early in 2012, still in chair as prosthetics unsuitable at minute.

Cost to get them away as baby is only £20 – therefore £484 would get them away 20-29th July, in time for return to Headley court for further treatment


2. Sgt (inf) plus wife and two kids. Single Amputee and other blast related injuries, on a prosthetic, looks a treat in shorts. Still under Headley court so able to go 26th July – 3rd August

Cost - £687

3. Widow plus mother of KIA & 2 children – Tom killed in Afghan last year, widow very very young, not taken things too well, left with two young children, very close to his parents, mother would go with them 29th July-7th August

Cost -£770

4. Two mothers of two young lads, bonded and formed a close friendship as a result of sons being killed a week apart.

Cost - £380

5. Cpl – (inf) plus wife and child, 3 x 7.62 gunshots to chest and legs, still serving, hopefully returning to a training role

Cost - £540

6. Widow – left with a 4 month old baby, now 2 years old, wants to travel with her mother

Cost - £465

Five more to follow, the total for all cases is £5780 this is purely for flights - I know the total is a tall order and there are campaigns going on elsewhere.

As the amounts raised rises, I'll tick off the cases.

Apart from any fastballs we get, this will pretty much conclude the summer, and considering we are in a recession and every pound is harder and harder to find, we should just about pull it off.

Many thanks to all who have already helped, lets just get these last few away.

I dont online bank :( how do I send from a debit card?
Not sure how that would work, but you're welcome to send me a cheque if you like and I'll make sure it's paid into the correct account. PM me if you'd like to do that please.
