    Exclamation A plea for help for an Ex Royal Engineer get his medals back.

    As some of you may know Elaine is a caseworker for the Royal British Legion. Last week she visited a young fella who had served for 9 years in the Royal Engineers including Iraq and Bosnia. Both he and his wife work full time, but with 3 kids they simply cannot cover the mortage and other monthly bills (in fact the out goings are nearly £200 a week more than their income).
    Literally everything that they can sell has been, the house is in disrepair and they don't even have carpets......
    The legion should help with all this but not as quickly as needed.
    You see Terry has had to pawn his medals, something that has really upset him....
    I want to try and raise enough money to get them back (£320).
    So I'm asking you to help (this is something I don't take lightly, and something I would never normally ask) so if you can please make a donation, any amount will help.

    Thanks for reading.

    Richard.

    £320

    If only 32 people x £10 = £320.
    If only 16 people x £20 = £320.

    I've just sent the first £20

    Hope it makes him a lot happier. His medals belong with him.
