Great day last Friday working for ABF: The Soldiers Charity at the Ideal Home Show at Earls Court. The Ideal Home Show always has a star line up including Laurence Llewelyn Bowen, Mylene Klass, Tommy Walsh and Dick Strawbridge and this year the week long exhibition was opened by His Royal Highness Prince Charles.

The Ideal Homes for Heroes appeal received a visit from the Prince of Wales as he toured the show. The appeal, launched during a dedicated Troops Day of military-themed celebrations, provides support to soldiers, veterans and their families to help make their house a home. Launched in 2010 by the Ideal Home Show the appeal has so far raised £250,000 for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. The money has been used to help more than 1,000 soldiers, former soldiers and their families with needs around the home.
