This episode I speak to Mr Dave Oliver who is not only an avid miniature enthusiast like you and me, but he also volunteers for an organization called Models for Heroes. As you will hear in the show we go through Dave’s personal history but we also ask why he decided to volunteer with this charity. Models for Heroes runs therapeutic sessions for forces veterans & emergency services personal in need of some activity that will allow them to redirect themselves into a more positive place.
I must thank Dave for coming onto the show and talking about this, it was fun not only to get to know him but also a little more about this charity. We mention it in the show but if your interest is piqued and you would like to find out more about Models for Heroes then you can follow the link https://www.modelsforheroes.co.uk.
I have also included a link to their recent video ‘piece by piece’ that you can watch to give yourself more of an idea of what they do and why. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYGoRUjBqU8&feature=emb_logo
I have nothing but the utmost respect for emergency and armed forces workers/veterans and I wanted to take time to thank them all for their service, I also want to thank people like Dave who volunteer to assist in programs such as this which really help people. Thoughts and prayers no doubt help in some way but action speaks far louder and it is people like Dave that make this all happen.
