Nanson Home Repairs and Renovations

Sgt Kevin Nanson was wounded in action by an Improvised Explosive Device in Afghanistan on 04 April 2008. Kevin is in the process of being medically released from the Canadian Armed Forces due to his injuries and deteriorating medical condition. As part of this process, his home was to be modified so that it could be wheelchair accessible throughout. The renovations have not gone well and have been the subject of multiple media articles,   TV interviews and extensive social media coverage.

The Regiment has provided a senior officer to assist the Nanson family in their dealings with the Joint Personnel Support Unit and any contractors hired to repair the damages to the home and complete the required renovations. While JPSU has assured the Regiment that the work approved in the original Statement of Work and the repairs necessary to fix work incorrectly done by the original contractor will be funded by the Department of National Defence, there are restrictions on how government funds can be expended, and these restrictions will leave the Nanson family with additional bills to pay.

The Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry Association has therefore agreed to raise funds for those items required by the Nanson family that are not covered by funds from the Department.  
The aim of the Association fundraiser is to raise unencumbered funds so that the Nanson family home can be properly repaired and the renovations completed. These funds will be used to cover those items that cannot be covered by Departmental funds.

The Hamilton Gault Memorial Fund is a recognized charity and you can make a donation on line at   https://www.canadahelps.org/…/charities/hamilton-gault-mem…/   . On the drop down bar select Nanson Home repairs and insert the amount that you wish to donate. You will automatically receive a charitable tax receipt. The Nanson family is one of ours. Please give generously.

The PPCLI Association thanks you for your support. We will provide regular updates on funds raised and how these funds have been expended in support of the Nanson family.

KINTEMPO SOUTH, GHANA - WORLD VISION PROJECT - A project initiated by your webmaster.
Howdy! CJ Wallace here. If I could, for about five minutes of your time, I would like to draw your attention to a project that I initiated.  

I have been a World Vision child sponsor of children in the Kintempo South area of Ghana for a number of years. Currently, I am assisting a child, Jones, from the area, having sponsored him, his family and his village for about three years.

First, why World Vision since I am not much of a religious man? Simply, World Vision’s transparency on how donations are spent is very good, demonstrating that it is one of the top charities that contributes most of the donations to the actual cause.

Second, why Ghana? I grew up in Ghana, living near a military camp in Kumasi, a town not far away from the Kintempo South area. I have many fond memories of this country, its people and its topography.

What is the project? The project that I have initiated, and set up through World Vision, is primarily targeting educational needs in the rural area of Kintempo South, Ghana. Education is the basis to future self-sufficiency. 

There are many far ranging and isolated villages throughout Kintempo South where educational support, including availability of teachers, is minimal. School buildings need to be enlarged, or new schools built, quarters for teachers and their families need to be constructed, and educational tools, such as desks, text books and ordinary PPnS need to be acquired. These are the targets for the donations.

The goal is to raise (Cdn) $15,000.00. It may not sound much for such an ambitious project to us in Canada, but in places like Ghana, where labour is provided by the villagers themselves, this sum of money can achieve much. So I ask, please, give a donation and let’s see a people move forward towards their own self-sufficiency.  

To donate, please go to the World Vision site dedicated to this project:

Leave Your Legacy At Patricia Park

  • Honour the memory of nearly 2,000 Patricia's who have given their lives in the service of the Regiment.

  • Join fellow Patricia's in commemorating your service or that of a friend or relative.

  • Leave a living legacy by helping the PPCLI Foundation support our veterans, soldiers and their families.

You may be interested in learning about the Personal Legacy Stone project at Patricia Park, Edmonton which the PPCLI Foundation introduced last August 2014 with the support of the PPCLI Association. We are reaching out to you to see if you consider leaving a legacy at Patricia Park?  Here’s what people are saying:

 

“The PPCLI Legacy Stones was an amazing opportunity to have my Patricia brothers and I to be remembered as one for a lifetime. The 11 stones we laid shows the growth and great memories we shared together within the PPCLI. To have our names in stone at Patricia Park and to have the opportunity to bring our children and family there to show them the bond of the Patricia’s is unlike any other.” Sergeant Brad Lowes.

 

“Thanks, this is a great remembrance for our soldiers. It is such a wonderful thing! We live in Griesbach, my dad was at Ortona, and so our family is very proud that we can purchase a legacy stone with his name.” Dolores Rodrigues. 

 

“When people see stones that have been requested in honour of or in memory of those who have passed, it will encourage them to think about their own mates who have passed, and perhaps to request one for friends of theirs, or get a group together to place one or more.” Brian Forbes Colgate.

 

“I am pleased to say that I am very impressed by the Park, and was very moved, especially to see the stone I had placed for my best friend and even more moved to see the stone for Vaughn Ingram who was a very close friend when we were young privates.” James Allen.

 

The spring installation will be in late May 2015 .  Please see the attached o rder form which includes photos of Patricia Park .

 

Stones can be ordered for retired or serving members; in memoriam; unit or sub-unit Paver; military friend, civilian friend and corporate friend; and for spouses (with the inscription “We Also Served”).

 

By ordering a stone, you will be leaving your legacy as well as making a contribution to the Foundation in support of soldiers, the wounded and their families, and families of the fallen. A portion of the paver purchase, $150, is eligible for a charitable tax receipt.

 

To order a stone, please let me know by May 22, 2015 along with the following details: (1) the name to appear on the stone, (2) the dates of service, (3) your address and phone number and (4) payment method. We accept payment by credit card or a cheque can be mailed to the Foundation office.  

 

  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. Thank you for supporting Patricia Park.

 

S incerely,
