Kit additions

The girls almost have all the kit they need for their Snowdon trek in a few weeks with much of the gear already having been tested on the practice trek last weekend. They are still in need of fleeces…..
We have been blown away and have some massive thank you’s to make..it really wouldn’t have been possible without all the donations:


Julian at My Holiday Partner http://www.myholidaypartner.com/hiking_equipment thank you so much for the day sacks for the girls they are perfect!!
Jenny and Ian at Junior Pursuits
http://www.juniorpursuits.com/ Thank you so much for all you sent the girls, gloves and thermal tops all fantastic and a great fit for all! A really touching letter was also included with the gear, I have quoted from this letter below:
‘The men and women in the armed forces do such an important job and are very brave, what you are doing helps make sure we all remember how important they are and how proud we are of them’

Fantastic hats and gloves were sent for the girls from Andrew at Catstycam the outdoor shop

The hats and gloves were featured on the girls BBC South piece

Andrew said ‘we really do believe in the work done by Help for Heroes so it is a pleasure to be able to help out’

Last shout out to http://www.waterproofworld.co.uk/  who sent through some fantastic base layers for the girlies!

Thank you once again for your kind donations. Lots of love from the girls xxx
