I hope you are well and I thought I should update you on David Wood. My wife and I met up with David and his partner Lisa on Monday at an address in Bournemouth where we met Gary X a veteran that David has housed and helped a lot over the last 12 months. I presented David with a £250 cheque for Help 4 Homeless from the Dorset Shrieval Trust. Also a High Sheriff’s award certificate for his enormous contribution to the charity.
Thank you for telling me about David: I have very much enjoyed my meetings with him. Also thank you for all the work that you and your team do for homeless veterans up and down the country. It was very obvious talking to Gary that the timely guiding influence your charity gives veterans in need of help, makes a vast amount of difference to their wellbeing which they hugely appreciate. So, may I, on behalf of the wider community thank you and your volunteers for the very valuable work you do.
Have a very happy Christmas and my best wishes,
John Young MC., JP.,DL.,
High Sheriff of Dorset
