EDITOR'S LETTER
Christmas may only be 29 weekends away (!!!) but that hasn’t stopped Kimberly Moore from Adopt-A-Letterour annual toy drive recipient from working.

She is currently in the process of building a school in Panchilmalco, El Salvador and needs our help with $$ donations and school supplies. You can learn more about her latest mission via
facebook.com/KimberlyMooreFoundation - I did my bit and went on a shopping trip to the 99 cents store earlier in the week and was able to get a big box of stationary for $30 - then went back to get more as my lovely mum wanted to help too.
Please donate if you can, even if you can only afford to spare $5. They are in particular need of notebooks and pencils.





You can contact Kimberly through her
Facebook page or email us at britsinla@gmail.com and we will put you in touch. One of the most rewarding things about helping Kimberly is that you get to see where your donation ends up - the looks on the children’s faces when they receive our gifts is truly heartwarming. 
Pete Heywood in London also needs help finding his nan…apparently she and her friend Pauline have gone missing!
Message him here if you can help 
I see a lot of you are getting excited about Euro 16 which starts on June 10th, if you want to watch the matches with like minded people it seems you have plenty of places to choose from, as everyone will be showing it from Ye Olde Kings Head in Santa Monica to the Fox & Hounds in the Valley, my local The Pikey in Hollywood will be showing the noon matches and so will The Lost Knight in Echo Park - let us know where you will be watching it. Or visit us on Facebook @BritsInLA for venue details.

For those of you who asked, Johny Pach is recovering from is awful ordeal and should be back in LA before you know it. 
Craig will be back next week to regale you with his latest travel adventures, I think he is the male equivalent of Judith Chalmers.

PASSPORT ADVICE
IMPORTANT!
Make sure your passport is biometric. You can tell if it is if it has a little square on the cover like the image above. If it doesn't do not book any travel until you have had it updated.

Make sure your passport is not about to expire before you book travel. Visit our blog for details on how to renew your passport.

One of the most common questions we get is 'Where can I get UK passport pictures done?'

Thanks to Brits in LA Member, Mario, we now have a pretty easy answer!
A simple (and very cheap!) solution to finding a UK size passport photo
  upload to a free website such as 
http://www.idphoto4you.com/, then order a print online at CVS, Costco  etc. Total cost, 32 cents!
Not comfortable with DIY?
Then we recommend
Photo Center on Beverly Boulevard @ Fairfax
