party The winner !!

The Winner DAVID HIDES

After the winning ticket was drawn we had to try and find the lucky winner, all we had was a e-mail address for him as he purchased the winning ticket on-line. The winner purchased 15 tickets. Simon (Go-Ferrett) emailed David straight after the draw along and copied me in. We did not hear anything until 1.30 on Monday morning when there was a reply. David asked us check the ticket numbers again as he could not believe he had won, he had forgotten about even buying the tickets .

I then rang him on the Monday to confirm with him that he was the winner. He was gob smacked!!

We then had to arrange with him a convenient place to meet and collect his prize. After many e-mails and telephone calls we arranged to meet him at the Tin hut at Tidworth the main office for Help for Heroes, at the same time we thought we would hand the cheque over at the same time. So on Wednesday 7th September, Me, Phil, Jimbo, Go-Ferrett, Surfdaddy, David Hides and his father met at Tidworth to hand over the van and cheque. The volunteers at H4H took us on a tour around there offices and Tedworth house were they have renovated the house and turned it into a rehabilitation centre for the wounded soldiers it was a huge privilege to be taken around the building and meet some of the soldiers. By the way they loved the van

When we went back to the tin hut, we handed over the cheque which was made out for 27,213.03 there is still small sums from different places being paid into the account so this is not the final total but very close to it.

We have a few items that we will be auctioning off very soon, Rock & Roll bed, mats and few other bits all the money raised will be put into the account and handed over to Help For Heroes.

Can I say a big thank you to everybody that has helped out along the way with this project it would not have happened with out you. The volunteers and soldiers would also like to say a huge thank you for raising such a large sum of money it will go a very long way to help the wounded soldiers and families out.

A few photos from the day at Tidworth.

Forgot to say he has joined up so if you spot him post it up, he is a bit shy at the moment.
