Help for Heroes
“It’s about the ‘blokes’, our men and women of the Armed Forces. It’s about Derek, a rugby player who has lost both his legs, it’s about Carl whose jaw is wired up so he has been drinking through a straw.
“It’s about Richard who was handed a mobile phone as he lay on the stretcher so he could say goodbye to his wife.
“It’s about Ben, it’s about Steven and Andy and Mark, it’s about them all.
“They are just blokes but they are our blokes; they are our heroes. We want to help our heroes.”
Last year you generously donated more than £345,000 towards providing aid and building therapy centres across the UK.
This year we want to do the same – and continue providing much needed support to those that do so much for us.
We’d like you to become part of our campaign and pledge your support by telling us how you plan on raising money this year. Leave your messages here.
You can also take part in our Help For Heroes campaign video – which recognises that it’s not just the wounded troops that need our support, but their families and loved ones too. Find out more about the video here.
The charity Help for Heroes was launched in October 2007 in response to the desire of ordinary people to do something practical to help our wounded servicemen and women.
As individuals we are powerless to prevent war and we feel helpless that we are unable to stop our men and women from being killed and wounded.
By joining together as Help for Heroes, we are doing something practical to help; we are doing our bit.
