End of the trek chapter…

15th April 2011 and the ‘My daddy is a soldier trek 2011’ adventure comes to a close for the girlies….. and us!! Months of hard work, planning and fundraising came together when we visited Help for Heroes HQ to hand in the total donations.

The final totals were:

£4988.79p donated to Help for Heroes, check out this link to see how that money is spent: http://www.helpforheroes.org.uk/how_we_spend.html The girls received a medal and certificate for their efforts and many memories to take away!!

£500 was donated to HomeFront Forces http://www.homefrontforces.org/ this will help the ‘Your Family’ page to be launched, Madison is patron of this charity and we are so excited for when the site is functioning and children with a parent deployed will have a communication tool!

BFBS Radio came down and chatted to the girlies and were excited to hear the progress as they have followed the journey from the beginning!
