If you're serious about going there d*ck, Let me know I'll meet you there, I'll prob ably going there again anyway as I left them my card so If they need more plumbing work they can ring/email me and I'll work it in :thumbright: , They have a joiner who works there every weekend, Kev, (top man), He's a teacher at Morecambe college , he does all the joinery and lots more too, so he does all the little plumbing jobs like sinks and general jobs that can be done with pushfit but if he gets stuck he knows now who to call,

That sounds like a plan Tom. Is there any Plumbing or Central Heating projects proposed in the future at the house? But hey, I can turn my hand to most things done on a Building site, so has Kev got any proposed projects? Kev must be a Saint giving up every weekend!!!

Brilliant news :thumbright:

I sent them another donation yesterday as quite a few forum members have donated the value of their competition prizes to the charity, so I rounded the value up to a whole figure!

Well, one very proud UHM member here, thanks to Tom, chez and all UHM members for making a difference.
I lost my son Karl to Acute myeloid leukaemia, on the 8th of February this Year and can’t explain the difference these places make. Not just the rest and little ease they gave to my son but they look after everyone that is affected by the disease. Even after my son passed the family has been booked in for a 10 day break this summer that’s 8 members in all. My son suffered for 15 very painful months, these breaks make a HUGE difference. On one of his breaks he popped the question and became engaged to a very beautiful young lady, they had been together for 4 years, they started as young sweethearts, they helped make this happen and he battled on for 6 more months but with that little bit of extra joy in his heart.

Rest in Pease son. Karl Hammond 08-03-1990 to 08-02-2012


So again thanks from someone who has been on the other end of a donation :thank_you:

Please donate

Respect

John

how kind some folks are, here's a recent reply on my channel


WayneBurgess1 has made a comment on donna's house of dreams http://www.donnasdreamhouse.co.uk/:

Thank you to The guys at Mr Toolstop who are very kindly sending a donation to this great charity after I wrote a review for them on some tools I bought.
Great lads and a very friendly company.They did not ask for any publicity but just wanted to say thanks. :)

whoops, the auto editor blanked the name, I respect the reason why, but I think in this instance the site should get a mention, :thumbright:
I leave it your hands .
