As you have read we formed in the summer of 2011 after our Snowdon trek in February 2011 the first event Linda and I really wanted to have was a huge Christmas Party, a special day where we as British Army families could get together, be a community, have some fun and celebrate what we belonged to…never did we dream it would be as amazing as it was!
Lots of hard work, late nights, emails and phone calls asking for help…and not a penny of funding and the results were fantastic!
Carol singers greeted everyone, Santa awaited, Major General Norton got the party started, dancing happened, crafts were completed, a tombola was sold out and faces were painted there was a buzz in the room like no other.
The day drew to a close Linda and I shed a fair few tears…of joy, happiness and tiredness I think! We had to pinch ourselves a little…WE DID IT! On our own and with no money, so many people though we were taking on too much, it wasn’t possible…we proved them wrong!
You have acheived so much and we are so very proud of you, keep up the good work you of all people know what a difference you are making to those kids with parents deployed and the parent left behind Huge hugs to you both xx Jan & Tony
