Stromness British Legion held a charity Tea and Cakes afternoon this last Saturday. The Charities being supported were the British Legion Poppy appeal and the Erskine Hospital. This latter is a bit too close to home as I have been in a Military Hospital which has now been closed as part of the Government cuts to the armed Forces. Military hospitals provide a valuable role in treating wounded or accident injured service people. They recover faster and are far more mentally comfortable, it’s the same factors at play with us civies, unless your condition requires hospital based procedures/monitoring we all recover faster at home.
Well done Stromness British Legion.
