Help For Heroes
Emma and I were profoundly moved by a visit to the soldiers at Selly Oak hospital and decided to try to do something positive to help our wounded. One thing led to another and before we knew it, we had met General Sir Richard Dannatt, the head of the army, and with his full support, have now launched a charity.
Help for Heroes is a civilian initiative intended to provide a focus for the goodwill that the British people feel for our Armed Forces. It is strictly non political, we leave the talking to the politicians while we get on with raising funds to provide practical support for those wounded in the line of duty in the current conflicts. We want people to show their support for our servicemen and women who serve their country so bravely and deserve the very best care we can provide.
We aim to raise a very great deal of money and will pass the funds directly to the services and their charities to use where most needed. Our first task is to help towards the building of a new swimming pool and gym complex at Headley Court, the wonderful Tri service rehabilitation centre at Leatherhead.
