Hols4heroes (September update & Grovel)

#1
Carnage in Spain, Ryanair have pulled all routes in UK (Less Gatwick) into Murcia so along with Le Torre being swamped with cripples and broken soldiers, widows and other animals, we've had to recce other resorts closer to larger Airports. This is now in the final stages so a move west in coming weeks is imminent.

This next week I have :

1 X Mum, Dad and Sister of a Mercian Military Cross winner (KIA) (Dad also injured)
1 X Family of a Signaller who's only child passed away early in the summer
1 x Family of Soldier badly injured in a blast and subsequent firefight.
2 X Couples both with injuries relating to service

They all arrive this week, they are all staying in luxury properties with their own pools.

Thats just a ten day period, 5 families = 19 people

If there is any help, please chuck it in the tin failure to do so will result in my publishing the citation of the MC winner, just to make you cry and guilt you into payment.

Other news:

Three of the vehicles are being sold, this will enable us (with a bit of extra funding) to buy two Renault grand espaces and have one of them wheelchair enabled. I've already sourced one and it arrives in country early next week.

I've got a massive amount of thankyou letters, not really for me, but to the fundraisers and donators that make it all happen. As soon as I work out how, I'll host and post them.

I've been a bit busy recently, so sorry for not stumping up the last few months....wife just gave birth to a baby boy last month....so I've raided his piggy bank and stuck some cash in the pot.

Folks have no idea how hard this man works ... and now this chaos.

Re-arranging the vehicle fleet, shifting all the disability kit to [somewhere] ...

DONATE to the Cause, please. No money is spent on Hamsters [the breeding programme has been successful] and EVERY penny goes to Hols4H.

Are we in a crisis? Slightly, I would guess.

The question is whether we say "Fukking hard luck, you've lost some bits of your body" or carry on trying to help the people who have been hurt, and the kids, and the widows. I say "Go On".
