PostSubject: Helping our fellow brothers   Mon 15 Aug 2016, 12:12 pm

Some of you already know I run a small disabled builders group in my area for a batch of gents stuck with no one or anything to pass the time but watch TV all day long. I took them over a batch of kits to build the other day and just the smiles are worth the efforts. It also gives me something to do and a purpose helping them and teaching them tricks and tips on building...sometimes I wonder who is learning from who..LOL.. Helping others out has it own rewards gents...these guys were almost lifeless when I met them...now their active and look forward to the visits. Funny how something so small can make such a difference to someone else.

Well done Mark.

It's a noble thing to do, helping others less fortunate that oneself.

That's great, must feel good, it's always nice to help people and I'm sure they are eager for your visits, you're obviously a very kind person.

Thank you gents...I am no one special I just have been in there shoes before and hated it its no life to have to try and live. After my car accident i spent way too many months laying in a bed with nothing to do at all...thought id go nuts. I have done this for about 6 years for them now hope to keep it going for them been trying to keep them stocked on my own and with a few donations here and there. It also gives me something to do to pass all the time I have and I am helping others that have no one else. A reward in itself. We all have the power to make a difference in some way to someone else that may need it. Right now there are 10 guys in the group...really good guys too. Thanks gents.
