VETERAN VILLAGE CHAT
Staff and children at Newland St John's Academy have had a Christmas Jumper Day today to raise money for Hull 4 Heroes.
NOTICE - HULL 4 Heroes will be offically holding a charity dinner on Friday 22nd January at the KC Lightstream Stadium. The committee has decided that due to number of artists and speakers on the evening we are now making the meal a 2 course instead of 3 course, as this will allow us more time on the evening to fit more in. As a direct result we can now offer the evening cheaper so it is more affordable to all following the festive period. Tickets are available now priced at £25 and you book them by emaiingl email@example.com
We are honoured that one of the main speakers on the evening is Paul Tug Hartley who's miltary story has been portrayed in the film Kajaki which I urge people to watch. We also will have Ben Parkinson from Doncaster in attendance along with local artists Leroy Vickers and Lorraine Ruby will be bringing along her Britian's Got Talent group The Ruby Reds.
As you can see this is already shaping up to be a great evening at a great venue to offically launch HULL 4 Heroes

Update from Paul Matson
still lots to do to identify the exact site we will work on ,we whittled it down to around 15 different locations all in different stages of planning and all have different opportunities and area size , one with amazing opportunities but that one is further away in time ,we are also still looking at house renovations we still have lots to sort and many more meetings to progress over the next couple of weeks ,I have to say this our city council have pulled out all the stops to help ,every card is on the table ,we feel very very positive ,on another front we have had some amazing offers from large companies ,again until pen is to paper we would prefer to keep those cards close to our chest ,none of this would be achievable without you guys for supporting and sticking by us please stay with us remember we are still young and new to this ,we are getting there and this will happen
