TMT has received many letters and emails asking to be included in the scheme and most tel stories that would make them worthy contenders for support. 

However, as has been emphasised on previous occasions, we cannot process those letters as TMT does not run the scheme.

    We are veterans who live in a sheltered housing association consisting of 32 flats with individual gardens and community gardens. Sadly the individual gardens for the ground floor flats are on a slope so older people cannot climb up to keep them properly. The community gardens still have the very old and sometimes diseased shrubs and trees. There is nowhere where we can sit out and enjoy the gardens in our old age. We are all veterans from the RAF our eldest being 97 and our youngest 64.

    We desperately need help and we thought we would try and look at what needs doing ourselves but it is such a big task we would value some help to get going. Is this something Alan could help us with.

    There is a lady I use to work with as a carer her name is Love and her name describes her perfectly. She has also been a foster carer for many years. She recently retired. She keeps her home wonderful but I know she would love a garden that her foster children would be able to enjoy.
    I hope and pray Alan can help her. Thank you.

    We have received a number of suggestions about garden projects which could benefit from Alan’s help. In some cases the letters include many personal details – which we do not publish without having confirmed that the sender wishes us to do so.

    Up to now The Military Times has not been in a position to actually do anything about recommending any specific proposal other than to draw attention to the application website as given in the article. However we do get quite a number of such requests and will therefore contact Alan’s team to see if they will allow us to pass on such proposals and, with the permission of all involved, report to everyone on progress as relevant.

    We hope that this helps – but until we confirm that this has been set up, may we again recommend that you apply via the link in the article?
