Help for Heroes was founded by Bryn and Emma Parry in October 2007 out of a desire to help the wounded Servicemen and women returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. The message of the charity is simple. They are strictly non-political and non-critical, they simply want to help. They believe that anyone who volunteers to serve in time of war, knowing that they may risk all, is a hero. These are ordinary people doing extraordinary things and some of them are living with the consequences of their service for life.
So if you’re looking for a fun night out and want to support a great cause then come along on February 4th 2011. If you can’t make the date but still want to do your bit then visit the Help for Heroes site to see all the great work they are doing and get involved or make a donation.
