Welcome to our great 2nd Helpings site, this cause has been helping Tankie’s and their families since 16th March 2016 and is going from strength to strength. Even though Facebook has played a bit part in building this community, this is the way forward for the future, mainly thanks to Peter for making this possible, please don’t forget why this was started and with all your help and donations, we have achieved great things for our MIB/WIB families. My aim is to make 2nd Helpings a name throughout the RTR family, (veterans and serving) and beyond in time, but can only do this, with all you lovely lot behind me. T.E.A.M. (Together Everyone Achieves More)  You can help by contributing, by making a monthly Direct Debit from £1 to £5, or more if you can, by creating a Standing Order, or a one off donation for the year, details of how can be found here Make a Donation 🙂 its your money its your Vote, if you don’t Vote, we can’t help the people you know that need the “Help” :)) FN. Thank you. Wolfie

Hi all, just a quick SITREP on a few things, firstly I am organising a Mobility Scooter to come down from Ipswich and be dropped of for Dick (Richard) Gash, as he had to give up driving, and needs his independence, so hope your all good with that 🙂 and 2ND Helping’s will cover the costs. Also if you able to give a few hours on Friday @ 14.00 to help clear out Ray Bebbington’s house,(please see ROLL OF HONOUR to leave your comments for Ray) that would be great, he address is 47 Terminus Road, Maidstone, ME16 9DA. Time is of the essence, as it has been broken into already :(( Roy Hill is the main man for this, so please contact him with any Questions. royhill@talktalk.net. Plus a massive Thanks go to Wayne Stockwell, who raised a great £168.80 from the sale of his RTR Stickers, Plus Phil Savage who raised great £75.00 from his MIB Patches :)) We are lucky enough to have AJAX Couriers helping us out in many ways, not only the pick up and drop off for the Mobility items, but also they have offered to store items at the warehouse in Farleigh Kent, plus have given Windy Gale time on Friday to use one of the vans to be at Ray’s, Many Thanks all at Ajax, especially Maria & Laura. That’s it for now Folks, Happy day’s ahead. ps if you need a Recliner Chair, please contact me :))

Good day all, so for the last year or so, a Tankie has been working behind the scenes on behalf of a MIB family, and sorting out LPA, legal power of Attorney for a WIB, but with Covid and everything else going on, has taken a long time, Good news is, it can now be settled, and our Tankie mate has managed to get it all done for £500.00 instead of the normal going rate of 2K. So just need your VOTE, Yes / No, to cover all the costs of £500. A big big Thankyou to our behind the Scenes Tankie for taking out the time to sort this out for the Family. FN.Wolfie

Saddened by the sad news of Bob Peebles and his wife passing to the Green Fields.
I knew Bob quite well and we had some laughs especially when we were in Bivvies up the hillside from Dolgellau in North Wales in the days when pubs closed at 10pm and only hotels open on a Sunday. We had some good times in The Stag Inn. May Bob and his wife RIP Sincere condolences to the wider family circle.FN

Morning All, so I have had a request from a Ole Tankie, he would like to “Borrow” £350.00 to pay for his car as it had a lot of work done on it to pass it’s MOT, he needs his car for all his visits to the Hospital, and can’t be without it, I have spoken to him and know him very well, like most of you do 🙂 So I am Happy with a Donation to him, I am sure once he has got the car sorted, we will get a Response from him, but he’s a bit Shy :)))) Please give me a Thumbs Up for your Vote (YES) or a Thumbs Down for a No vote. FN. Wolfie
