Tarts for Troops

  Working for a good cause a few celebs and the Houses of Parliament thrown in all adds up to a good job. www.blindveterans.org.uk is certainly a good cause it helps vets who have issues with sight as a result of combat or for other reasons readjust their lives. The celebs were Johnny Ball and Alec Newman. Alec had worked with the vets when he was researching a part of a solider blinded in combat returning home and has kept in contact since. Also in the picture above is Ken Facal one of the members helped by the charity.
  And the best part when you have a few beers on the terrace afterwards only the MP in this case Ian Swales (Redcar) is allowed to get the beers in. So a big thank you to Ian for hosting the event and buying the beer.
