Family Fun Day 2009

Family WeekAt the end of May we took part in the National Family Week initiative and held a Family Fun Day at Portsmouth Football Club. The day saw an inflatable five-a-side football pitch and speed tunnel provided by the Football Foundation, and the Army put volunteers to the test with a challenging inflatable assault course. For animal lovers, ‘Animal Encounters’ exhibited a range of creatures to touch and feel, and face painting, games, quizzes, fire engine and tank demonstrations, and a gigantic balloon release are just a few of the other events which took place throughout the day.

We would like to thank everyone who attended and provided support for this fantastic initiative.

Meeting with Bob Russell MP

Bob RussellMonique Bateman, our Director, met with Bob Russell – the MP for Colchester and a member of the Liberal Democrat Defence team – shortly before Parliament ended for summer recess. The meeting was arranged after the MP learnt about the charity through signing our Early Day Motion, and wanted to understand more about our work. The meeting went incredibly well, and we look forward to working with Bob Russell in the future to help alleviate the problems faced by the children of service personnel.
