Just to let you know that the second SSAFA Norton House at Selly Oak, Birmingham, opens its doors from Wednesday of next week (26th Feb 2009). As with its sister house in Surrey, both homes provide a "home from home" to support the families of injured service personnel. The first SSAFA Norton House at Ashstead, nr Headley Court has now been open for just over a year, and what a year. The staff there are fantastic. I cannot tell you how over the moon I am; a realisation of a vision with the help of many people, hoping to help many, many more.
