Justin Farrier thanked everyone for the generous donation and said that the €1250 donated by HELP MMM will pay for flights for 12 individuals and a villa for 3 months or 3 villas for one month.

Holidays4heroes was formed in 2008 by ex soldiers, who had been injured and fell upon hard times themselves and wanted to give something back when life became better for them. Though independent from Help for Heroes, Justin confirmed that they do get referral from them. They have strong links with the rehabilitation centre at Headley court, BLESMA, RBL, SSAFA, RAFA, Royal Marines and all the Regimental associations. Applicants are generally amputees, injured in other forms or bereaved families; there is no need to verify beyond the obvious when considering those applicants. More careful selection goes into the hard time and welfare cases, where a more rigid selection is used.

If they are independent, they will hire their own vehicle to use, if not Justin picks them up and makes sure they have enough food for when they get here and then take them shopping. He takes them to the beach, into Cartagena to visit the monastery and other places of interest. Justin was a soldier for 8 years and 14 years in the fire service and is an unpaid volunteer.

Accommodation is generally gifted. However they do take out long term rentals on several properties, purely for ease and control and obviously to cater for larger numbers. These Villas are generally owned by generous UK residents, who can afford the peppercorn rent that is offered as payment.

At Bar-B-Q’s volunteer help would be greatly appreciated. If you would like to help, do please contact Justin on mobile (m) 633102479 or by E-mail:- jsaf67@yahoo.com
