8 December 2012 Christmas Tree Sale Dorney Court

On 8 December Jill, James and Freddie Palmer held a very successful Christmas Tree sale at their home Dorney Court in Berkshire.  

A team of Dougie’s friends, including Duncan Ealand, Broders, Freddie Palmer, James Palmer, Dada Stileman and Oliver Tomalin along with their other halves worked tirelessly for some 7 hours, chopping, stringing up, smiling and finally banking the money for approximately 180 trees during the day.  It was an extremely happy day with the sun shining down on us all which helped and it was terrific to be joined by Colette and Ant + Ruby and young Sybil who along with the others chose a Dorney tree.   

Proceeds were divided equally between DDMT and the Henry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund.

We would love to hear from you if you know of any soldier (whether current or past), family member or any project that might benefit from our help.
