    A successful Christmas, and a total of 36 families and servicemen past and present benefited from our Chrimbo campaign.

    Latest Jan info

    After a month or so of begging, scrounging, blagging, stealing of spare parts, tyres, discs, pads, filters mechanics time etc our two people carriers are back on the road with full MOTs, shiney new bits and a clean bill of health for the upcoming season.

    I'm begging for help with the following however.........

    The wagons are set to return in a fortnight, ready for work mid February. I've got to get them there however, and that comes at a quite hefty cost.

    Ive got the drivers, the wagons are full of things like bedding, barbeques, spares, you name it, we have it for another season.

    The insurance is steep, and the fuel is around £330each vehicle to get them there, plus £66 each for the channel tunnel.

    With the insurance, we are looking to raise about £1735 to put us in a position to operate the vehicles and get them where they need to be for the year.


    Thankfully both were salvageable and deemed reliable by a grown up, saving us a small fortune.

    Why we do it

    I know all you guys see is me holding out the begging bowl and asking you to fill it. I am guilty of not putting enough feedback up, its only down to being busy and the above is purely an example of the scores of similar emails received every month.

    The above chap is placed for Mid may...... I just need wagons there to pick him up from the airport.

    He's staying here
