“Smudge, have you seen all that mess in the kitchen?”
“I have Ted, I thought something dreadful had happened with all of those carving knives lying around!”
“Well you know that something terrible did happen, still does happen, and funny enough that’s what all the mess is about!”
“Not sure I understand, can you explain Ted?”
“Maxine and the team have been pumpkin carving, but it is all in aid of The Royal British Legion. They support people who are affected by conflict and those who have been prepared to make a personal sacrifice by serving in the British Armed Forces. There has only been one year (1968) since the Second World War when a British Service person hasn’t been killed on active service and since 2003 the Royal British Legion have provided financial help to over 10,000 veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan operations – and are investing £50 million in Personnel Recovery Centres for the wounded of current conflicts.”
“I think that is amazing, so how can I get involved?”
“All you need to do is vote for your favourite carved pumpkin, on the Maxine Lester Residential Lettings facebook page. Click HERE and you will go straight to it!”
“I think all of the photos are fab, I am going to LIKE them all.”
