It was once Syria’s largest city, but four years at the heart of the country’s civil war has left much of Aleppo in ruins. This is the only way to get water for most in East Aleppo. Some 40,000 people have already moved back into the ruins. This boy was collecting water for his family in East Aleppo. Look closely near his right eye. That is shrapnel under his skin.

Here at Jammy Toast we are well aware of the sacrifices the older generations have made to keep Britain and the British people free from tyranny. Every year we remember these people on Remembrance Day and always buy a poppy – that is the absolute minimum we can do for people who kept Britain British.

In this picture, the girl will always be 9 years old and wailing “Too hot! Too hot!” as she runs down the road away from her burning Vietnamese village. She will always be naked after blobs of sticky napalm melted through her clothes and layers of skin. She will always be a victim without a name…

There is a feeling of excitement around Jammy Toast as we get nearer to the World Cup. We are realists, we know we probably won’t win the competition but at the same time there is a feeling there somewhere that maybe we just could. We always seem to get knocked out of competitions by the skin of our teeth – either on penalties or by losing to the odd goal. Well what if this time we had just a touch of good luck for a change and we actually won the close games instead of losing or bottling out of a penalty. However, thinking back to the most important game of football we have ever played in it didn’t even matter if we won, drew or lost.
