Vist the PODS project on site:
Altcar Camp Commandant Colonel Gordon Black, plus Steve Hunter who is Project Manager of the Altcar Camp PODS, are delighted at how the scheme is progressing through the very kind Donations of so many Companies and Individuals, as the whole Project has to be Self Funded.
The four PODS, that sleep two persons each, are now in place in a secluded part of the Camp and when the area is completed, hopefully mid next year, injured and wounded Military will be able to spend some time there back in an enviroment that they had been used to, and mix and talk to serving troops and ' feel at home again ' and this will assist their rehab.
Special thanks to mention a few who have donated free are local people who have held coffee mornings and bring and buy sales, Total Timber, Spotmix Concrete, Pauls Tyres, Regent Coaches, Formby Tool Hire, plus Rotary and Masonic Institutes.
A large container has been donated and this is being turned into a work Shop and fund raising is now continuing to build a shower block and facilities.
For those who served and have suffered terrible injuries in conflicts, the PODS ' dream ' is becoming a reality to support them .
