Emma.

Trust you’re well. I received my two S4S shirts at the weekend...thank you so much. They are absolutely beautiful and the popper instead of the top button makes life so much easier. It really is tremendous, generous and humbling. Thank you and all your team very much and hopefully we’ll meet so that I can say thank you in person. 

All the very best,

Oscar

Dear Emma,

Thank you so much for the shirt that fits perfectly the tie and cuff links set it off lovely. This means so much to me because as they say Northern Ireland is the forgotten war. I get very low at times having had no real help in the last 48yrs. As I say I cannot thank you enough for the lovely gifts it’s really lifted my spirits and made my day. 

Kindest regards,

Fred Jeffreys 

I and my family would like to express our sincere gratitude to you and your team for such a wonderful lunch at the Safari Hut and a night stay at the quiet and lovely Woburn Hotel.

Thank you once again and God Bless you all.

Kindest Regards,

Ekow

Dear Emma,

Thank you so much for an amazing day at Woburn safari, we truly had an awesome day, the kids loved it. We spent most of the day with Dave,Stacy and there lovely children Jack and Amelia.

It’s aways great to see the smiles on all the children’s faces and family’s having fun, you can spot them all around the safari, with there amazing sock monkeys.

Thank you once again Emma,

much love the Tarten-Hughes family xx

Just a quick email to say thank you to you and the team for another wonderful  trip. The Woburn Hotel was amazing as was the safari Park and bbq. 

Thank you for all you do. 

Kev has a picture of us with he sock monkeys and I mean it when I say without yourselves and kev I don't know where I would be. 

Thanks again

The Conde's

I wish to take this opportunity to thank you all for inviting my family and friends over at the safari park. We had a good time and really appreciate you for taking the time to organising the barbecue and also providing us with a wonderful hotel.

Many thanks.

Regards,

Frederick


Just wanted to say thank you to you all for a lovely day today. We had such amazing day lunch was lovely and my boys loved their teddies.
Hotel was fantastic a real treat for us all as a family to just relax and not worry about anything for a while.


Thank you to you all


Kind Regards,

Please thank Emma for a fantastic day me and my wife had at Woburn Safari Park. It was topped off with a lovely barbecue meal. 


Regards,


Ian

Good morning Emma,

I am writing to thank you for organising the Invictus UK trials BIG GIG with Eliot on Monday evening. I only managed a quick hello with you before the event started, but managed to bump into Eliot at the swimming on Thursday to thank him personally on an amazing evening that started off the week with a bang.

Hopefully you managed to get to see some of the events during the week and saw the amazing things that can happen when you give people hope and belief. I bumped into  old friends and made many new and without people like you giving up your time things like this would not happen and we would be content keeping within our safe little bubble and not pushing ourselves to get out there to push the possible.

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart,

Best wishes,

Ian

You might recall I was made redundant earlier this year. However, after 179 applications I have secured a new job at TFL.

The tools that I learnt at David’s motivation and well-being workshop played a huge part in me constantly moving forward despite the barrage of “thanks, but no thanks”; and of course the lucky shirt.

-Mel 

Style for Soldiers continues to support and encourage me out of my comfort zone. I’d not been to London in ten years and the workshop provided me an invaluable opportunity to make changes to my daily routines allowing me to move forward in life.

 John

Thank you for all that you did to help organise and run last weeks Style for Soldiers Summer dinner. It was another excellent evening catching up with friends and making new ones. I hope you were able to enjoy the evening. I would also like to pass on my thanks to Matt for being so instrumental in getting Burberry on board and for Burberry’s very generous donation of costs.

Thank you again for your time, effort, compassion and kindness.

Very best wishes,

Fran

Your events make me feel special, and I haven’t felt special for a very long time.

Andy 

Morning Emma,

The Style for Soldiers dinner night was a great evening.

It was the first dinner night me and my wife Heather have been too. Heather had such a great time that night she was able to put some personal stuff to the back of her mind for a short time.

The two of us feel bad for not chatting to you that night. Every time we wanted to people were pulling you different ways to talk to you.

It’s means so much to Heather the money you gave her to buy a new dress honestly Emma it meant the world to her.

From me and Heather we can’t thank you enough for an amazing night.

Thank you

Chris

Good evening Emma, Kristal and team,

I wanted to thank you once again on behalf of Jade and myself for your kind invitation to the Style for Soldiers Summer Dinner in Gloucester. 

It was a truly fantastic evening and I can't thank you enough for the efforts that you all put into to organising such events and creating such experiences/memories for everyone that is lucky enough to be able to attend. It was truly amazing to have the opportunity to catch up with so many friends that without your events, we simply would not get to see, largely due to work commitments and geography. 

The unrelenting work and support that you provide is an inspiration to all and the thanks and appreciation could be clearly seen on the faces of everyone there. You are literally giving hope and changing the lives and wellbeing of injured serviceman and their loved ones.      

Once again a heart-felt thank you for organising and hosting such an amazing event. It was truly incredible and somehow, they get better year upon year. 

Forever grateful

Dan

Dear Style for Soldiers,

We would like to say a massive thank you for an amazing evening on Friday night at the get together. The meal was lovely and the hotel, we really enjoyed it. Thank you also for the Burberry coats, we haven’t had a chance to wear them yet but love them.

We can’t wait to see more pictures up on social media.

Thank you so much for everything that you do for our veterans

Many thanks

Dan and Sarah Phillips

Good evening Kristal,

Thank you and Emma for another amazing Style for Soldiers Summer party in Gloucester. I can’t believe we were given Burberry coats it’s an amazing gift to be given i’m so grateful and humbled to be thought of and i’m very lucky to be invited to these events every year.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication to us veterans and the charity, I really had a good laugh with you as always and looking forward to more laughter.Xxx Cant thank you both enough i’m so grateful xx Ben Roberts

Hi Kristal,

I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye tonight as I went to look for a taxi and one was waiting for me there and then. So I had to take it otherwise a big wait would have happened. 

I just wanted to say thank you to you and to Emma. So please pass on my thanks to her. 

It was a great night and so well laid out and the food was amazing!! Plus thank you to all involved with the Burberry coats....I think everyone was delighted with receiving them. 

I hope you enjoyed the rest of your evening and please pass on my apologies to Emma too for not saying goodbye and thank you in person. 

Best wishes,

Gavin Watson

Good morning Kristal,

Thank you very much for a very enjoyable evening. 

I would like to add that Martin looks very handsome and smart in his beautiful Burberry coat.  We both appreciate the hard work you and Emma do to create a memorable experience for everyone.

Kind regards,

Helen Hailstone 

Good morning Kristal,

Kindest regards,

Jon

Hi Kristal and Emma

1st of all thank you so so much for last night, once again it was an amazing night, I'm sorry I couldn't chat for longer. Everyone made Sally Anne feel at home and that was great. Sally also passes on her gratitude and really looks forward to seeing you all again.

It's so humbling being part of SFS and really proud to be part of the family.

Here's to the next one,

Best wishes

Good evening Emma and Kristal,

Myself and Mike would like to thank you both for inviting us last night. We had a fantastic time and met a lot of lovely new people.

We are very grateful for the opportunity to meet and socialise with people who can understand what we are dealing with.

The opportunities and support you offer are fantastic. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do.

Many thanks

Claire and Mike Brewster

Good morning, 

Thank you so much for the invite to last nights summer dinner. 

Myself and my wife had a great time, it was lovely to meet everyone. 

Thanks again, 

Simon

Hi Kristal,

If you could pass on our thanks to Emma and everyone involved who helped make Friday evening a success then that would be appreciated. We had a lovely time and it was nice to see some familiar faces once again.

The Burberry coat was a lovely gesture and a nice surprise.

Thank you once again and we look forward to seeing everyone soon.

Regards

Lee Milburn

Emma,

What can I say that hasn't been said already! The dedication and hard work that went in to staging the Summer dinner at Hatherley Manor was incredible. I met many friends and some new ones who were at their first dinner; their feedback was incredibly complimentary.

I felt like a magpie, clambering for a beautiful Burberry coat; I think too much champagne was the culprit!

Once again a heart felt thank you to you, the sponsors and the guests who made the Summer Party special. It is so important for 'us' who confront a daily struggle with physical and mental issues, but you make it so worthwhile.

Danny

Dear Kristal,

It was lovely to meet you on Friday night, and thank you for such a warm welcome and fantastic event.  Kate and I had a wonderful night out, met some old friends and made some new ones too.  Emma, yourself and your team of helpers are doing a fantastic job and I will write separately to express our gratitude properly.

We very much look forward to seeing you again a future events.

Many thanks, and best wishes,

Pete & Kate

Hi Emma and Kristal,

Just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you so much for Friday night. Paul and I had a really amazing time and enjoyed every minute of it.

I’ve had a stressful last few years with him working overseas since he left the Royal Marines, but he came home for good in April. He found out on Thursday that he’s got a job working as a Cover Supervisor in a local high school so Friday night just topped off a great week for us! It was so nice to see old friends and make new ones, and we’re so grateful for you putting in the time & effort to organise such a good night for everyone.

A million thanks again,

Lorna (and Paul) Trickett

Hi Kristal, I would just like to say thank you to you and Emma for such a wonderful evening I really enjoyed the occasion and to receive a lovely jacket from Burberry was just amazing. Please pass on my thanks to Emma and to your self for giving me the opportunity to be part off it . It was really lovely to meet so many people at the event. Can you please send me yours and Emma address so I can send a letter of thanks X

Dominic

Good evening Emma and Kristal,

I hope you are well and have recovered having organised another incredible evening.

The events get better each time and the impact they are having on the lives of others are so powerful. I am truly grateful to you and Kristal for the effort you have and continue to put into all of us.

David O’Mahoney

It's with a smile I write this to you Emma for your wonderful evening you provided at Hatherley Manor. 

Its the second group  meal I have attended with my lovely lady Hazel. We both want to thank you for all your effort. The venue was beautiful and meal scrummy! We also shared a table with wonderful people and made some new friends.

May we also say big thank you to Kristal for all her help and her remembering me proposing to Hazel on a plane in January. We were both proud to hear of Andrew's MBE and to hear his gratitude to his wife . Partners do have to suffer our moods, anger and frustrations. They are Heroes in their own right. Further thanks go to all the Supporters you introduced and to the lady from Burberry. 

Hazel made me a very proud man to hold her hand Friday as she normally does not do dresses. She was and is beautiful and my best friend. All this has been a huge change for her and I can not be more grateful. Last 7 months have put a lot of pressure on our relationship to the point she gave up her job 10 weeks ago to stay with me as she was scared to leave me alone. 

Friday evening was a great reason to get Hazel dressed up and for her to relax. I introduced her to Jamie Hull who like everyone else has done so much to get a life back. Hazel and I had a wonderful evening all due to you Emma.

We both send our love to you and your Team and your Charity Supporters

Andrew and Hazel

Dearest Emma, Kristal and S4S

Amanda and I had the most amazing night at this year’s S4S Summer Party. It was lovely to catch up with everyone and I also managed to arrange with Stewart Hill to come along to Pirbright and deliver a my story/inspirational/motivational speech to the Army Training Regiment, I sure that will surprise a lot of soldiers of all ranks especially how so theatrical he delivers.

I had a lovely chat with Richard and he vowed to play golf with me if I complete the 5828 press ups, which relates to soldiers enlisted into the Army. I hope I raise the same amount in money for this awesome charity too.

The night went so quick, and I’m sorry we didn’t really get to chat as you had to rush off at the end of the night when I finally got to talk to you.

Also, thank you with all our heart for your kind £100 donation to go towards Amanda buying an outfit, which she managed to purchase two.  

We are so grateful to be part of this special, amazing and clearly the finest charity on this planet - Fact!

Love you guys

Regards

Phil and Amanda xxx

Good morning Emma and Kristal

I hope you are both well, and had a great weekend!

The event on Friday was amazing, you truly are both brilliant!

Have a great day, lots of love

Michaela and Tom Hall x

Emma,

Oh what a night! Probably the best yet and it didn’t finish until 3 am at the hotel so sore heads all around. Many thanks for the tireless work you and the team continue to put in, it is hugely appreciated by all. 

The trench coats were a huge success and it was funny to see 2 being worn at breakfast. Being a spotter in military history I was aware of the connection to the first trench coats produced pre WWI but all I got from Danny Kaye and Co was Police jokes about Inspector Gadgets and Closeau! 

As an aside I was struck at the number of guys who are rapidly becoming veterans now and I am sure the new well being and mental health support will be of enormous help to them. The hardest part for me leaving was the feeling of loss when you left, no longer having the respect of others and the support blanket that had been in place for over 33 years. It takes a few years but the veneer is sometime thin so coming along to events is always good to remind you who and what you were. 

Good luck for the summer and hopefully see you at one of the next events.

 Regards

 Wilkie

Morning Kristal,

Just a short email. Just want to thank you and Emma for having me the other night. Once again it was a fantastic night and thank you for everything. Was lovely seeing everyone and yourselves.

Justin maskell

Hi Kristal

Great to see you again the other night..

Wow what a night eh thanks so much for all of your hard work in the organising and setting up I reckon it paid off eh?

Hope you had a great weekend and rested a wee bit J

All the best for now

Swifty

Hi there just want to thank you for a brilliant night, I just want to thank you for my lovely trench coat can’t thank you enough.

Cheers dan

Dear Emma,

Please accept these flowers as a token of my appreciation, thanking you and everyone at Style for Soldiers for a wonderful evening and all that you do to help.The event provided the chance to reconnect and make new connections with fellow Veterans and it was a huge pleasure to be part of.

God bless and kind regards,

Samuel Buglass

Emma & Kristal,

Thank you once again for everything! The Summer ball was amazing, hospitality great, we are truly grateful for your help, support and invitations.

Lots of Love,

Michaela and Tom Hall x

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your m&s voucher.  Due to just returning from deployment I have only just got to round to using it.  It was a lovely surprise for when I got home.  

The work you do for style for soldiers is remarkable.

Hello,

I would just like to say thank you for sending the shirts to me that I previously emailed you about. I have just received them and I cannot wait to start wearing them out again.

Thankyou very much!

Kind regards

Thomas

Dear Emma, 

I am yet again humbled and grateful for the ongoing support Style for Soldiers continues to offer me, and other veterans, who have been discharged following injury.  It can often feel like the system no longer cares about us, but to know there are others out there who do and who are willing to offer real tangible support is truly heartwarming.

I would be most grateful if you could pass my thanks along to those from Marks and Spencer who supported this offer.  Equally if there is someone from that organisation I could write to, to express my gratitude, I would be delighted to do so?

I am lucky to have been able to secure employment that i am able to do despite my injuries, and your kind gift means I will continue to look my best for years to come, while doing it.

I would also like to take this opportunity to offer my deep regrets that I will not be able to accept your kind offer to attend the Summer Dinner, unfortunately I am on holiday on that date.

Once again, countless thanks I am extraordinarily grateful!

Yours truly, 

Ewan

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the work that you have done in securing M&S and Russell and Bromley vouchers for injured servicemen.  I have used mine and I can honestly say that I am chuffed to bits and I could not be more grateful.  I am sure that you will also have made a huge difference to lots of other servicemen who have been injured through the years.

Kind Regards, 

Nick

Thank again so much for all that you do.  It is very humbling indeed!

Dear Emma, 

I just wanted to say thank you for your help and support.

Kind Regards, 

Ian

Good evening  Emma,

I would like to wish you a massive congratulations for your achievement in getting awarded the 1138th Point of Light Award on the International Woman's Day!!!! I am so happy for you Emma and I must say you do absolutely deserve this award, it was a long time coming. 

Your absolute devotion, compassion and tireless commitment towards us the injured servicemen can never be paralleled with any other. We can never thank you enough for everything you do for us Emma. Have a good and productive week.

 - James 

Hi,

My name is Chris, I'm one of the beneficiaries of Style for Soldiers.

Please would you pass on this message to Emma,

I am filled with joy to hear your being recognised for an award today, on International Womens Day.

I first benefited from your charitable organisation about 4 years ago, you provided me with a shirt, and the vouchers for shoes and other work wear through M&S and Russell & Bromley.

At that time I was going for my first real job; post service, I was nervous of London, and working in a professional working environment. I was further nervous of interviews, and looking the right way. I most certainly did not have the money to give myself appropriate workwear to last myself a week!

What you provided me with, through your organisation, was the confidence to walk into my interviews feeling like I belonged, looked good in my beautiful shirt, my new shoes and my suit; I felt prepared. Furthermore, I could get everyday shirts, trousers and other bits and bobs so that I looked and felt the part in the new office environment I was moving in to. That confidence, in my mind, is why I am finding success in my career.

I am very fortunate, have a wonderful job, in an industry I am passionate about working in. I fundamentally believe that without your support I may not have got the job in the first place, and even if I had, I would have felt out of place for months whilst I found a way to dress appropriately, whilst feeling good about how I looked. Particularly with my injury.

Further, your Christmas Party is legitimately my favorite event of the year. The chance to see my friends, whilst networking a little over a glass of bubbles is amazing. I sincerely wait with baited breath every year for the email to ask me to join you. Its incredible, and the hard work you and your team put in makes a huge difference to us.

Your support of vocational rehabilitation through providing dress and event support is phenomenal. I feel privileged to have met you, and I hope you find more and more success as you continue to provide support to the community of injured servicemen I belong to.

Kind Regards,

Chris

I would like to thank you and Emma very much for the voucher. I really appreciate it and look forward to getting a nice suit that fits properly! 

Thank you and the whole of Style for Soldiers for all that you do. You make such a difference to people's lives and not just the soldiers, but the families too. You do not have to search far to hear how grateful we all are for the support you offer and it is great to see how it has grown since the early days. 

I hope that you have a brilliant weekend. 

Kind regards, 

Stephan

Good morning,

Could I please thank you very very much for the outstanding gift I received yesterday in the post.

I can not say enough how much this meant to me. 

I can say without a doubt your a charity which actually applies to Northern Ireland and even though I have moved house the letter arrived at my new address.

I am very grateful to you all.

Kind regards,

Ricky 

Dear Emma, 

Thank you so much for you kind gift it will help me get prepared for my further. It has taken a financial weight off me and my families shoulders.

I look forward to meeting you one day 

Thank you for your time in this matter 

Kindest and best regards

Matthew 

Emma, Kristal, Guy,

All I can say is Wow wow wow and a massive thank you!

My stick arrived today and it is bloody gorgeous and awesome....the timing couldn’t have been more perfect.

I have been in hospital AGAIN because of the epilepsy caused my brain injury and they have done a big meds change over which has made me even wobblier (hopefully this will be temporary). I got out last week and my dad left me on my own again yesterday!

So thank you, thank you, thank you... you have put a big smile back on my face!

You are bloody awesome :)

Sara

Dear Emma, 

Thank you so much for you kind gift it will help me get prepared for my further. It has taken a financial weight off me and my families shoulders.

I look forward to meeting you one day. 

Thank you for your time in this matter. 

Kindest and best regards,

-Matthew 

Afternoon Emma,

I have heard nothing but great things about the things you do for the lad and ladies. Everyone says amazing things about you and how much you have already done for them. 

Thank you for getting in touch so fast and giving me the opportunity to get involved. I have received the email with the M & S voucher and I can’t thank you enough.

I have been in Headley the last few times you have visited over the years and every time I always seemed to be at hospital or out of unit.

I am very pleased to have finally touched base with you and will look forward to meeting you in person.

Thank you very much.

Regards

- Pete

Hi Emma,

Hope you are well. 

We would both like to thank you for inviting us to the event, it was lovely. It was nice to see some familiar faces and meet new people. 

Thank you very much for the pictures, they look wonderful. 

We are happy that you like our little gift.

Our best wishes to you for 2019 and we shall see you soon!

Kristjan & Janeli

Dear Emma,

Happy New Year and hope you have had a wonderful break with your family. Many thanks for such a fun evening with Style for Soldiers and friends, it was a really enjoyable evening and so good to catch-up with the Headley Court family. Melissa and I both loved it and we enjoyed great company on our table! I know it must have been a great effort to have so many people seated.

Lee’s story was moving, inspirational and a testament to your amazing work. As we chatted to him before dinner I could hardly believe he was the same person who arrived in my company sometime in 2008 after our tour to Iraq. He clearly has taken great strength in the support you have offered and is getting things back on track.

I hope you have a great 2019 and thank you for your continued support.

Best,

Ed

My dear Emma

What a fantastic evening that brought back some great memories of the good things that happened in Headley Court.  Its been some time since I came to one of your gatherings and well not disappointed just outstanding.  Kristal you are a diamond well polished putting all the work in to make it happen and it was great to see the face behind the working machine Kristal.  If there is ever any thing I can do speak chair or assist please do not hesitate to ask.

Please have a amazing Christmas and an even better New Year and look forward to our next meeting.

Yours Bernie and Jan x

Wow, once again you and the team worked your magic for a superb Christmas Party for the Style for Soldiers clan last night. I have been to a few of these functions you work so hard at and every one I go to is beyond excellent; in fact they are outstanding in every way. 

The dinner was exquisite in every way, as was the champaign and wine, although I possibly had a tad too much! I wish you all a Merry Christmas and New Year and I look forward to seeing you all next year.

Please say a huge thank you to Emma and the team for making my life, and I'm sure all attendee's, whole again.

Thank you,

Danny

Thank you for such a wonderful evening. Everything and everyone were perfect and I was touched by so much love and kindness. 

It’s been quite a year and I thank you both for all of the enormous work that you have done for all of us damaged but vibrant souls.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year

Dear Emma and the Style for Soldiers Team,

Amanda and I would like to thank you for a fantastic night at the Style for Soldiers Christmas party.

We were sat next to a good group of guests that we have never met before and those sat nearby meant conversation flowed and the night went by very quickly with lots of laughs and sharing memories of our time at Headley Court of course the singer and an engagement was a highlight of the night.

The Hotel was fantastic and so nearby that Amanda could enjoy much of the night and not be too tired to travel to the hotel while working around her pregnancy.

Have a fantastic Christmas and New Year.

Warmest regards,

- Clifford

Please accept both mine and Hazels gratitude for your effort and fabulous evening you arranged last Thursday. 

It was my first year to attend after yearly invites and although nervous it was a pleasure to be part of it. Also it was a huge pleasure to have Hazel join me and keep me calmer than ever amongst so many people.  It was also nice for you to see the special shoes you got for me from Bill Bird. They are so comfy and help so much with my dropped foot.

We both wish you and your family a lovely Festive break and time to relax. 

Many thanks again for our invite Emma. 

Best wishes,

- Andrew and Hazel

Hi Emma, 

I really wanted to send you a message to, once again, say thank you for starting Style for Soldiers. 

As my time in the Royal Marines is coming to an end, and my rehabilitation is being transferred to the NHS, I can feel my identity slipping away. I have slowly been taking items from work out of my cupboards and draws and either throwing them away or putting in my ‘memory box’. 

Today I took my Lovat suit (No. 2’s) out of my wardrobe. It’s so strange to think that removing a uniform I’ve only worn a handful of times could evoke a feeling of great loss, but it has. My mental health has been in a pretty dark place recently but I had to do this to try and move on. All that remains in my room now are my green beret and in my wardrobe my Blues (No. 1’s). Feeling down I looked in my wardrobe, at the newly formed empty space and realised that right next to my blues are my Emma Willis shirt and M&S suit. 

This may sound strange but I put on the shirt, the suit, polished shoes, cuff links and pocket detail, and I just stood in front of my mirror looking at myself. The loss I felt was replaced with a feeling that I CAN reclaim my identity, the realisation that what I wear can replace my uniform and project who I am, now that the title Royal Marines Commando has been taken from me. For the few minutes that I wore the suit it felt like I was bought me back to life. 

Through you I have met Stefan and, just yesterday, I spoke with David O’Mahoney, connections who can and have guided me. 

Style for Soldiers can’t give me my career back but you’ve helped me to start erasing the feelings of being lost and worthless.

Thank you so much.

- Andy

Good morning Emma, just wanted to drop you a message and say thank-you so much for suggesting I do the BBC service, I love that I had the opportunity to say Thank you to the people that have helped me from where I was to where I am now. You are also a huge part of that. I’ve seen the confidence and pride a soldier holds when they feel a perfectly fitting shirt against their skin. A great quality suit on their shoulders and a pair of top end shoes on their feet. You have done me, the guys and girls a great service. Thank you!

 - Louis 

Good morning,

A massive thank you to Style for Soldiers and Marks and Spencer's for such amazing generosity, I can't wait to order a new suit.

Receiving both the invite and letter about the suit has really lifted my mood. After a fairly hard week this has honestly been the best boost.

Every year style for soldiers make me feel special and my wife and I are so grateful for that.

Thank you once again.

- Stuart

Thanks to some more Emma Willis shirt magic, that's another successful job interview chalked up.  I've been out of contract now for about 10 months and was worried I might have forgotten too many technical details, so it was reassuring to know that I at least looked the part.

Thank you to everyone at Style for Soldiers for helping make that happen. 

- Mat 

Emma and Style for Soldiers,

Thank you for my walking stick.  It brought a big smile to my face and proud to use it everyday.  I am very grateful for your kindness. 

- Julan

Afternoon Emma.

I can't thank you enough. What you do is magical for us.  You make me,us, feel so special you really do.

I would absolutely love to attend your Christmas party. It's my Birthday on the 12th Dec, so S4S will tie in nicely. If it's still ok to attend? 

Honestly Emma, you are very kind and passionate about what you do. The dedication and time you spent measuring the group, Headley Rebels, shows what you are all about. Intrinsic to our recovery, paths, appreciation and appreciative allows us to engage with value' s we once had and still have whilst not feeling lost.

It was a pleasure to meet you Emma. Thank you so much I'm truly humbled, see you on the 20 Dec 18.

Kind Regards

- Mike

Aww I think it is amazing that you have done so much for patients at Headley Court have you just been there again?  If so I am gutted when I first came to Headley Court I was in hospital waiting until I was able to leave hospital I thank you you massively for everything you had for so many soldiers and family.

- Adam 

Massive shout out to the Style for Soldiers team for all the love and support that has been unwavering post injury for so many.  When I had no confidence and self esteem you were there to help rebuIld it and I will forever be grateful to you all for that and of course keeping us all looking and feeling sharp with shirts, ties and other accessories courtesy of supporting brands.  

- David O'Mahoney

I just wanted to let you both know that we all had a fantastic day at Woburn yesterday. Thank you so much for letting us share in all the fun and we thoroughly enjoyed the superb food and company.

Thank you also for the beautiful flowers you allowed Leann and I to take home. They survived the journey home in Albert’s car and they look great in both our homes.

Even the down pour couldn’t dampen our day. Amalia certainly enjoyed herself and didn’t want to go home.

Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to Emma as I don’t have her email address and to all the other staff who helped make this a wonderful day for not only us but all the other families.

With kindest regards,

Christine, Leann, Amalia and Albert xxxx

Dear Emma,

Please excuse the delay in coming back to you to say a huge thank you for the incredibly kind gift of your stunning shirts and a tie. I have known about your charity, and indeed have met you on several occasions at various events, but have never been very good at putting myself forward to accept offers like this – I always feel they should be going to others than myself. What you do is incredibly kind, generous and, most importantly really makes a difference to veterans’ wellbeing. I was like a kid in a sweet shop being asked to take my pick of your incredible shirts, and my evening routine of ironing my shirt has moved from drudgery of preparing for another day at work – to a sense of pride of knowing I’ll be the best dressed in my office!!!

I just wanted to show my appreciation for an amazing Summer party, it was truly amazing, atmosphere was great and the food was lovely.

I really do feel humbled to be apart of this amazing family we call style for soldiers, i say family because everybody gets on so well and every event I have been to I meet somebody new with an amazing story to tell.

Over the past couple of years you have done so much for me and I truly believe I wouldn’t be in the head space I am today if it wasn’t for your amazing help, you have saved me and saved my family, which I am truly grateful for.

I have meet some amazing life long friends along the way and that’s all because of you.

Truly humbled, very grateful and very proud to be apart of this amazing family. 

- Glen 

When I wear my shirt and ties, I feel confident, Style for Soldiers is the embodiment of support.

- William

A huge thank you for all you and the team do for injured veterans like myself – we are very lucky to have you support and champion our cause.

 Kind regards,

 - Will

Hi Emma,

Thank you for inviting my and my family for the Woburn event - it was awesome! 

I have learn loads of things in the last 4 years, some I wouldn’t wish on anybody (mostly big medical words that I couldn’t even say them before I had my brain issues!) but one of the important ones is saying stuff because you don’t know if you may never get the chance.... so I thought I’d let you know exactly what the Woburn event meant to me. And you have to you excuse my typing - I have to do it by dictation call as I can’t type anymore...

The Woburn event is the first time that I’ve dared to attend something in 4 years, since my brain tried to kill me a few times(!). And this has been for a number of reasons, but The main one being because you also invited my family. They have done so much for me over the last four years - more that I could have wished. My brain is fairly (what’s left of it ;)) broken... I now have problems with my cognitive stuff, my communication stuff, anxiety issues and I also have uncontrolled epilepsy. This means that I can’t do big, loud, social, events. I also can’t travel anywhere on my own or drive (that would just be scary (mostly for other road users lol ;) But you enabled me to give a ‘thank you’ to my family because of YOUR event. That event at the safari park meant I could ‘run away’ if I couldn’t cope or if I began to lose it at any time and grab one of them away if I needed to, or if I had a seizure, but the rest of the family could still enjoy it. You also gave me a couple of brilliant surprises too - One of the guys I was at Headley with 4 years ago was there - it was lovely to see him (Greg (RAF too - Can’t remember his name - my memory is shocking ;)) and seeing Kath the Cake Lady was fantastic too. I spent months as a inpatient on the neuro ward at Headley - Kath was one of the few females who I recognised! We were definitely in a male environment :) :) :)

Because those of us with brain injuries look ‘normal’ and few people understand that every brain injury is different means most people don’t understand how difficult we find social events (I am as guilty as anybody was before my brain tried to kill me a few times). People don’t understand the noise, the confusion, the difficult communication issues we have constantly.... and if you chuck in my epilepsy triggers (stress and tiredness) most social events are doomed from the start lol :)  however, your event made me be able look beyond my issues (it’s all about me don’t you know ;)) and I was able to concentrate on my family, I (you) was (were) able to focus on the ones that look after me...

So this is a mahoooosive enormous ‘thank you’ from me to you...

Sara

Hi Emma,

I just wanted to say a personally thank you once more for the beautiful shirt and suit. As you have seen we look super dapper.

I can not thank you enough and hope to catchup soon.

Kindest regards,

Jaco

Dear Emma,

Thank you for the two Fabulous Ties I have just received from you in the post.

I cannot believe it was 9 years ago I had the pleasure of meeting You & Your staff while doing my rehabilitation at Headley Court and was measured up for a designed fit silk shirt, which was a very generous gift to all of us there.

On behalf of myself & all the other Service Personnel we would like to say a Huge Thank-you for the Support and recognition You have shown to us and continue to do so.

I wish Yourself and Staff all the Best for the Future and it's people like yourself who recognise the Armed Forces that made me PROUD to have served 23 and a half years.

Kind regards,

Carl 

Hi Emma,

I trust you are well?

Just to let you know that I received the shirt you sent me. It is beautiful and fits me so well. 

Thank you so much for it. You are a star.

Lots of hugs and kisses from me and the entire family.

xoxoxo

Kind regards,

- Maggie 

Dear Emma Willis, 

I had to write to you even though we have never met, just to say thank you!! Thank you for being one of those extraordinary people that cares and goes out of their way to make a positive  impact on other  people that cares and goes out of their way to make a positive impact on other peoples's lives.  As can be seen on your media program.

- Ken and Fred the Dog 

Dear Emma,

Please accept my sincerest thanks for your kind, and extremely generous help with this and for all you have done with Style for Soldiers.  As well as Afghanistan, I also served in Iraq, Libya and Nigeria, although I am sorry to say I have often since regretted it for the impact it has had on my life, and ultimately the loss of my career.  I feel embarrassed to admit how I have struggled with coming to terms with this since, and with starting a new career. 

 - Michael 

However, the knowledge that there are brilliant people out there like yourself who recognise what the Armed Forces do for the UK, and are kind enough to support them in return, is a massive boost to morale.  I look forward to attending interviews smartly dressed, no longer in my worn out old suit, which will undoubtedly improve my confidence and chances of finding employment.  I have also RSVPd to Victoria, and would be honoured to attend the Style For Soldiers Summer party.  Thank you very much again.  

Best Regards

Mike Watts

Dear Emma, 

Thank you so much for an incredible evening at the summer party, 

It was great to meet new people and catch up with old friends. 

You have achieved something very special. 

Fond regards

Just want to say a massive thank you for the shirts last week really really amazing gesture thank you.  Keep doing what you're doing because you really make a difference thank you.

- Nathan

Hello Emma, 

You were not under any obligation to do this but for your selflessness and the heart to help not only injured veterans like myself but their families as well, is a testament of your generosity and genuineness. I still cannot fathom this action of yours as it's beyond expectation. Truly, it came in at the right time and will go a long way to put a smile on my family's face.

Thank you ver much.

Regards,

- Jonathan and Family

Hi Emma

You truly are my guardian angel. Just got home after a horrible long day and my shoe had split earlier in the day.    Opened the post and received the most wonderful generous gift and couldn't have been more appropriate. What a turn around of my day. 

Thank you ever so much. 

Dear Ms Emma Willis, I had to write to you even though we have never met, just to say THANK YOU!! Thank you for being one of those extraordinary people that cares and goes out of their way to make a positive impact on other people's lives.

Hi Victoria

I have just come out of my interview and I have been offered the job. It must have been the suit, or as I call it the Lucky Suit. 

I have gone from no suit for a interview to receiving one the day before and turning up looking smart t and being offered the job. 

I could not be happier.

Thank you all so much Style for Soldiers. 

Emma,

Thank you very much for the support when it mattered most. 

Regards

- Jonathan

Dear Emma

I hope that all is well and thank you again for all that you are doing for injured servicemen- it really makes a huge difference. I wear my cufflinks and shirt with pride and putting them on always makes me think how lucky we are to have such supportive people.

Thanks again for all that you do.

- Nick

Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to you, your family and all at Style for Soldiers.

2017 has been a year of reformation and thank you for your help with getting me over the final line. I am looking forward to 2018 and have many cornerstone goals i hope to achieve.

May 2018 be equally wonderful for yourself .

Kindest regards and gratitude as always for all you do.

- David

Dear Emma, Victoria and Kristal, 

I would just like to offer my sincere thanks for all your efforTs towards making the Style for Soldiers Christmas Party such an enjoyable event, and for your support over the past few years.  it is an event that my partner and I look forward to each year, and seeing people that we may only meet once a year at this event. 

As for the shirts, it is great to be out there in 'Fab' wear!

Looking forward to seeing you all again in the near future.

Kind Regards, 

- Gavin

Victoria, 

I have just been viewing the photos from the Style for Soldiers Christmas party and wanted to thank you again for organising such an outstanding event, as well as sorting out a super Hotel for us.  

It was the first Style for Soldiers event that my wife and I had been able to attend and we both found it an outstandingly memorable occasion.  it was wonderful to catch with with so many people that I shared my rehabilitation experience with and we really enjoyed a very special evening. 

Emma and Style for Soldiers are very fortunate to have you on board as you did such a fantastic job in so many respects.  You are a true inspiration to all servicemen and their families.

I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas.

- Chris

Hi, 

I just wanted to say thank you so much for such a wonderful evening at the HAC.  Each year I realise more and more how important it is that the WIS community is offered a chance to come together like this.  Matt Weston summed up the real mental issues so many veterans face and he is a great example to us all how they may be faced.

Victoria, your organisation leading up to the event was great - I am sure you would have been flat out mustering so many veterans from all corners of the world!

I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas!

Best, 

- Ed

Hiya Emma, 

Thanks so much for the gift for Jack, it is lovely.  Poppy and Jack are now home and doing just well.  So sorry I could not make it to the party I was gutted but had to be with my family as Poppy needed me.

Hope you all had a lovely party, thanks so much for everything Emma really means a lot the amount of things you do to change peoples lives is outstanding.  I did put you forward for an outstanding person reward, but never heard back from them.

We can not thank you enough.

Hi Emma,

Thank you for a really nice evening, was so good to see so many old faces, and also see them doing well.

Everything you and your charity are doing is amazing which showed at last nights event. Look forward to catching up with yourself and everyone soon. 

- Michael

Afternoon Emma, 

Just wanted to email you say I am so grateful for you arranging the hat fitting.  I went yesterday and Michael helped me get a very smart cap and a hat that would not usually wear.

- Martyn

First week at Ernest and Young over and have found it fantastic to date. 

Collected my shirt yesterday and so thrilled. There is nothing quite like putting on a shirt that fits so well and feels tremendous. Again, thank you so much!

- David

Evening Emma,

Really glad that you got to see my email in regard to the shoes you so kindly helped me to get.

Bill Bird is a lovely gent and all his staff are so nice, they make you feel part of them. They also have a lovely residential cat who liked me and would sit on my lap.

The best thing is that I wore my lovely new shoes and they were comfortable all day. So they were officially christened on Horse Guards Parade Square on to Parliament street, past the Cenotaph back to Horse Guards Parade and Prince Edward as well as 100's of spectators.

As long as I can assure you in words of my deep gratitude to you for what you have done for me then I will be happy.

My sincere best wishes to you and your family, to your staff, Victoria and wish you continuous success with your Business. 

Always Grateful,

- Andrew

Emma, 

Would love to say thank you for a wonderful and inspirational evening.  Met some lovely people, even though I was out of my comfort zone was made to feel wanted and welcomed.

Victoria has done a marvellous job, and it was nice to see Kristal as well.  All the blokeS were really excited about it and the mood at breakfast was brilliant.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to push myself and the most terrifying thing was to talk in front of people.  Well thats one obstacle out of the way and feel better for it.

So excited for Christmas now, and I will be bringing my long suffering sister along, she needs a bit of praise and she is also Royal Navy so it would be nice for me to be able to thank her.

You, your team and even your family are brilliant. 

First complete nights sleep in a long time and absolutely buzzing.  Arabella and Paris really have fired me up to do something with my creative side.  Tori really got my mindset and we got on really well.

Thank you for letting me part of the Style for Soldiers family.

Lots of Love, 

- Richie

Emma I do not even know what to say.  For once I am lost for words.  Your generosity is very rare Emma the whole Style for Soldiers community shows me sides to people I never knew existed and has opened my eyes in the more ways than one.  

For once I can't seem to find words, I really can't other then thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Many thanks Victoria for helping me.  I may just still have enough time to get a new suit for my honoured day at Remembrance Day at the Cenotaph.

Can I ask you to forward my thanks to Emma please.  Emma helped me to get a pair of bespoke shoes made by Bill Bird shoes at Moreton in Marsh.  After months of fittings and adjustments for my leg and foot injury I picked the shoes up today. 

They are not only lovely to look at they so far are so comfortable and can accommodate the orthotics and adjustments for my dropped foot. I am so grateful to in particular Bill for his years of experience and skills but also in particular his staff member Emily. She has been involved in the shoe manufacture from a lattice to using paper templates and so on.  Her talents for making shoes have resulted in this wonderful pair of shoes that I can wear on November 12 in London. There I can speak highly of Emma's support and Bill Birds team and the Pattern Makers donation.

Once again thank you for the suit information and hope you and your girls and husband are well.

All the best, 

- Andrew

You and the Emma Willis group do a fantastic job raising money for this great Style for Soldiers Charity, and you all put so much hard work into help support the injured Soldiers which we all really appreciate so a massive thank you to everyone.

- Rickie

Afternoon Emma, 

Had a knock at the door and a gentleman from a courier firm with a parcel for me.  It is a beautiful crisp white cotton shirt.

Thank you so much for it, never worn anything so nice since leaving the army, I can once be smart again.

Thank you, 

Another step out of the quagmire of adversity since being medically discharged.

P.s. Please pass my thanks onto the craftsman that put it together, it is amazing.

- Richie

Emma, 

My suit arrived today, thank you so much for this wonderful gift, I am truly honoured.  

I will wear it with pride, what an amazing lady you are, much love xxx

- Glen

Dear Emma, 

Last week I attended the Style for Soldiers retreat in Mallorca.  This was my first interaction with Style for Soldiers as I missed you at Headley Court originally, but what a first impression! Thank you SO much for providing the opportunity to attend such a fantastic event.  Stu and Lizzie made us all feel so welcome and it was so beneficial to have such experienced one on one support for the activities, and in such a beautiful location.

It was incredibly useful to be able to meet other veterans and WIS at different stages of their recovery and gain inspiration and motivation from what they are doing.  Added to this, partners were also present (unfortunately not my husband as he had to work), which gave a whole extra dimension to the event.  The balance worked exceptionally well and I gained a lot from this mix.  I strongly believe that if my husband had been able to attend, it would have benefited as significantly as a couple.

Again, thank you so much, the memories and inspiration from the event will carry on long after my tan fades!

Yours,

- Lucinda

Thank you so much for the S4S retreat. It was an amazing experience. To have the opportunity to go on a rehab event, with a loved one, as part of a group of individuals with different injuries, to somewhere that made physical activity so accessible, was incredible. It was wonderful to go to group sessions and not feel self-conscious about my injury and mobility, as well as being able to talk to the other guys in such a relaxed setting.

I’d also like to thank you for the S.U.P and boat trips. It was the first time in four years I’ve been able to go for a proper swim in the ocean! I never thought that S.U.Ping would be possible, thank you for giving me an environment in which I had the confidence to try it. I loved it!

Thank you again.

With Love, 

- Fran

Dear Emma and Victoria,

I hope you are both well and are not too busy with work.

I am emailing you both today to thank you for everything you have done For me. I have now chosen my suit from Marks and Spencer with shoes and accessories. It was very generous and will certainly help me with my transition into civilian life with interviews and job fairs.

I recently heard from one of your colleagues called Nel who asked me for my address to send me an invitation to something which I am very excited about. With that in mind you mentioned to me about your Christmas Party which sounds fantastic and would be amazing to go too. As I mentioned before I get married on the 4th November and it would be great to bring my then wife to your party.

I was wondering if you would know how long it would be for the walking stick to arrive. I know it seems rude for me to ask as you have done so much for me so far but the thought of using such an amazing stick instead of the NHS one I'm using now on my wedding day would be awesome and look good in the pictures.

I hope you don't mind me asking and being so rude.

Say Thanks to Your Online Course Students with Handwritten Cards

thank you for your willingness to sign up the course

You've honed your CV, done your research and bossed the interview, and now - finally - you've received the email or letter containing those all important words that your hard work have merited. You've landed your dream job and you're already planning your ascent to the top of the company, charming bosses and colleagues alike in a hailstorm of revolutionary ideas; before you crack open the champagne, though, there's the small but important matter of saying "yes" the role you've been offered.

The most professional course of action is to write to your new boss, formally accepting the role and perhaps returning any signed documents that are required - but what is the best way to do this while maintaining the good impression you’ve made so far?

Here’s a step by step guide on how to write a job acceptance letter or email.

 

1. Keep It Professional

If you have documents to return, a printed letter in a professional tone should accompany them, but if you’re accepting a job offer made on the phone (or itself via email), then a formal email in return is fine. The key word here, though, is formal: your new employers are not your pals just yet, so steer well clear of any LOLs, emojis and informal spellings. Keep things simple and professional at all times, and avoid the tendency to ramble; your soon-to-be boss is essentially just looking for confirmation that you're accepting their offer, after all.

2. Thank Your New Employer

In even the briefest of letters, you should say thank you and make it clear you’re excited about the opportunity. It's also a formal indication of your willingness to accept their offer (just short of signing the contract), so you should be very direct and clear that that is what you're doing. Aim for something along the lines of: "I am delighted to formally accept your offer of employment in the role of XX".

You may have a long notice period before actually assuming your new position, so maintaining a positive impression is important, too. A more personal touch such as thanking the interviewer for making you feel comfortable is an excellent idea and reinforces the sentiment that you are trying to convey.

3. Confirm Details of the Job Offer With Your New Employer

Your job acceptance letter is your chance to confirm important details regarding your acceptance of employment, such as the agreed salary, your department, position, supervisor and - most importantly in this context - your start date. Summarise your understanding of the offer so that everybody is clear on the agreement being made, thereby avoiding any nasty surprises further down the road.

It is also the perfect place to ask any questions you may still have, about the role or benefits of your new job - especially if you forgot to ask when prompted in the interview. 

If you’re keen to get more information about your new role in advance, say so - your new boss may be able to send you pertinent information you can start looking over during your notice period. Not only will you have given yourself a headstart when your first day comes around, but your boss will already be impressed by your enthusiasm and proactive attitude, too. Depending on the flexibility you have in your old job, there may even be training sessions or meetings you could be involved in before starting.

4. Specify Any Special Considerations

If you have a pre-booked holiday or vacation that you arranged months ago, then most employers will try to honour your plans. Many managers check this kind of thing during the interview, especially if they require someone to fill the role urgently, but if they haven't, then it is important to raise the issue quickly.

Nobody likes requesting time off before they've even accepted the position - let alone built up some goodwill in the job - but if your plans are unavoidable or can't be changed (i.e. an expensive holiday that includes flights, or an important event such as your wedding), then you don't really have a choice. As long as you're respectful and polite in how you bring it up (don't start off with it, for instance, and enforce that the role is still your priority), then there shouldn't be an issue. Besides, if your boss is unwilling to give you time off for your own wedding, then is that an organisation that you particularly want to be a part of? 

5. Make Sure to Edit and Proofread

Having written your job acceptance letter, double check the details before hitting send (or print). The last thing you want is a professional communication that is littered with poor grammar or spelling errors. If you're meant to be returning other documents, check that all the information in them is correct and up-to-date (you don't want your new HR department to be on your case before you've even punched in) and, of course, don't forget to attach them, either.

6. Avoid Basic Errors

As already mentioned, the important thing in this letter is to avoid making basic errors and tarnishing that great first impression that you made during the recruitment process. To re-iterate, the key errors to look out for are: 

  • An unprofessional tone
  • Misidentifying the hiring manager or employer
  • Addressing the hiring manager or employer incorrectly (Mr, Mrs, Ms, Dr)
  • Not reiterating all the specifics of the offer (salary, supervisor, position, and date when you will begin your new job)

Job Acceptance Letter Samples

If you’re still unsure of where to start, or you need something to compare your own effort to, then we have included some sample templates for you. It's a good idea to write a draft and ask a friend or family member to review it before you send it, especially if this is your first job. 

Letter Template

Email Template

Finally, all you have to do is send it; if you're mailing it, then ensure the address is correct (especially the department) and that it is a nice envelope. If possible, you might even hand it in personally, either to the manager in question or at the reception of your new offices.

Then all you have left to do is celebrate, before your next big writing task - writing your resignation letter!

Hi Lindsay and Amy I really hope you reply even tuhgoh it has been 2 years since you've posted on here I'm so glad to have found this site. My name is Nichole and I am almost 23 years old, I have suffered with NDPH since I was 16. I was a Sophomore in high school, it was near the end of 2006 when I got sick with bronchitis and the flu and coughed and coughed and noticed I had a really terrible headache with it. Once the sickness went away I noticed that the migraine, that pain in my head that had been so foreign to me prior to this, had not gone away, and still has not to this day I had to be home schooled and quit all of my sports I was a part of My friends went on with their lives and forgot about me while I had a constant 24/7 pain that I could not get rid of no matter how hard I tried or how much it killed me, physically and mentally. We began with Chiropractors, decompression machines, adjustments, etc. I traveled hours to probably 20 different Chiropractors that all said that they knew what I had and exactly how to treat it. I've tried natural supplements, over the counter medications, 6 Occipital nerve blocks in the back of my head, massage, diets of no wheat, no gluten, no sugar, vegan only, all with no progress. My family understands the pain and how I can be ok one minute but then pick up something slightly too heavy, walk a little too fast, sit down a little too hard and I will have to be in my room with blankets over my windows and absolutely no sound because the pain is so unbearable. It is so frustrating because I too feel like a burden, like ok you have a headache so what? Why can't you stay out late or get up early or work long shifts or run around and be active? But it is so much more than a headache It's become a way of life and although I think I handle it well I know that deep down I am depressed and deeply saddened by it because anytime I stop to think about it or talk to anyone about it I cry instantly. Lindsay, I too have tried the things you have with no help and at Cleveland Clinic where they did my nerve blocks they told me about the program where you stay there for an amount of time. My option they told me about when staying there was a few weeks, they would put me on all these medications and steroid medications, have physical therapy and counseling as well. They also said the FDA would soon be approving the Botox injections, I'm sorry those did not help you either NDPH has altered my life drastically, I can't work as much, I can't run around and just be free, I can't take a full load of classes at a time Basically I just want to thank you for having this site Amy, it is really more helpful than you know, just knowing that I'm not the only one to suffer from this and that I'm not the only one that has this pain to think about every single second of every day Bless you and bless all your readers, may you all find relief from the pain -Nichole
