Gloucester Letters

Dear Nickie Our son was away and received one of your wonderful Boxes. He is home for R and R at the moment and has showed us  your letter. When he contacted us on Christmas Day. He said he had a fun filled Day and was very touched how Supportive the General Public were. As a mother this was my first time apart and was feeling sad as Christmas Eve is his Birthday as well. I was also feeling more proud than usual if that’s possible. He was suppose to be here and Deployed this month, however in true Comrade fashion he changed Deployments with his Comrade who the year before was in Afgan so he could enjoy a Festive Season with His family as Grant was lucky enough to be with us and not in Afgan. Your help in making his Festive time enjoyable helped me very much at Christmas more than you will realise. I trust your Christmas and New year were as good as you made Others, I truly hope so. All the Best to you and your Family for 2015. Many thanks indeed Nickie Kind Regards Lorraine,Gary Taylor and Shelley (Grants Twin.) Xxx


Good Afternoon Nickie,

I wanted to convery my thanks for the very kind gifts that we received from you and the SOS organisation recently. I’m very sorry it has taken so long to reply however we’ve had a particularly busy time of things.

The gifts sent to us were great and made home feel a little bit closer having been out here over Christmas. The socks and the gloves come in handy during the winter months but the temperature is on the rise again which is in complete contrast to the weather in the UK I understand? I have been watching the news with interest and cannot believe just how wet the UK actually was/is! I think there is more to come as well. At least I don’t have to worry about the weather out here.

I was delighted to hear that you managed to spend time with your family over Christmas – I have a two boys aged 5 & 2 so completely understand your comments about the prezzies. I am very much looking forward to getting back later in this month to see them  all.

Thank you once again for the presents they are great.

Kindest Regards


Hi Nickie,

Just a quick e-mail to thank you for the welfare box that arrived here today.  We are in Oman and it’s nearly 30C at the moment, we are surrounded by desert.

Toiletries were especially welcome and I’ll save the jumper for the cooler evenings.

Thank you for your kind thoughts.
