Charity event reportage and portrait coverage. Friday the 23rd April 2010.

The champagne reception fund-raiser auction took place at the Carlyon Bay Hotel Golf Club, and was honoured by the presence of the charismatic guest speaker Simon Weston OBE.

Help for Heroes shouldn’t have to exist. Another reminder of the state of our mismanaged country. But that aside, It was refreshing to learn that this charity is manned by volunteers who do not get paid, it’s expenses are covered by it’s corporate wing, and they issue money to people who need/deserve it with-in 48hrs of a request. All of the money donated goes to the service personnel who have been left to fend for themselves. None of it is lost in admin or ‘expenses’. Seems like the complete opposite of all we are used to. Wish they would stand for election as well…
