The Great British Ball In aid of Help The Heroes

Help for Heroes is a Charity which allows Soldiers that have been injured to be provided with everything they need, from putting up families nearby to The Queen Elizabeth Hospital where they are initially admitted to, receiving gifts for a morale boost and to aid recovery.

They also help modify houses to suit Soldiers and their families needs, the Charity put together holiday and activity packages for children of affected families to help them recover and meet other children in the same position. H4H gives them the security of care for life.

The Town Hall is a beautiful venue and know that the evening will be wonderful and most importantly will be raising money to those whose lives changed forever one day whilst out fighting for our Country.

The evening will consist of a three course sit down meal followed by a raffle, auction and dancing!

Nicholas Weaver Cycles 838 Miles For Help The Heroes

Nicholas Weaver is taking part in a bike ride on July 1st by cycling 838 miles from John O’Groats to lands end Nicholas also plans to compleat this in only 14 days, to raise money on behalf of Help For Heroes a charity set up to help service men and women of the armed forces returning from Afghanistan and Iraq.

Nicholas Weaver says:

I’m aiming to raise £100,000 so it’s going to take a lot of hard work so if its possible for you to help it would make a huge difference to my fundraising goal and to the men and women of the armed forces that risk there lives every day, ordinary people like me and you some left with life long injures. To give my fund-raising a kick-start and to spread the news of my event I’m giving £0.02 for each person that likes my Facebook Page doesn’t sound like much but I hope to reach 50,000 and that will raise £1,000

Last year my cousin was in a near fatal car accident and broke nearly all of the bones in his body, he was sent to Queen Elizabeth hospital in Selly oak. While he was there he spent some time next to the ward where they treat injured soldiers, while visiting my cousin I meet and spoke to a few of the soldiers and there stories and positive attitudes even after their ordeal really touched my heart also my aunt works at the hospital and often tells me heroic stories some of the soldiers have told her.

I don’t have the courage or the guts of the men and women that risk there lives every day for our country, but this doesn’t mean I can’t do my bit to help, I’m fit an active and enjoy a challenge, this is something I have thought about for a while and to achieve this would be a dream come true and a great sense of pride to know I have done my bit.

Dambusters Charity Ride For Help For Heroes

A Stone man is raising money for Help For Heroes by following the route of the Second World War Dambusters raid – by motorbike. Keen motorcyclist and Help For Heroes supporter Simon Dufton has organised the Dambusters 2012 Motorcycle Ride, which will take place on the 16th and 17th May, the 69th anniversary of the infamous 1943 raid.

The ride will follow the route flown by 617 Sqdn Lancaster AJ – J on the raid itself. The team will drop a wreath on to the water of the Mohne Dam in Germany to remember all those who lost their life as a result of the raid and then return via the John Frost Bridge, so famously held by the Paras at Arnhem, the ‘Bridge too Far’. The event will finish, as did the original Dambusters raid, at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire. All of the riding will be done at night, just as the Lancaster Bombers had to carry out their raid under the cover of darkness

Simon said:

“It’s myself and three of my work colleagues who’ll be doing the ride, which will be about 1,500 miles all in. The most challenging bit will be that the vast majority of riding will be at night. That will be the real effort.

“I’ve supported Help For Heroes for a while now and raised over £3,000 in 2010 by riding to all of the active RAF stations in the UK in a single day. I’m a passionate motorcyclist anyway, so I wanted to do another challenge and to raise more money for an extremely worthwhile cause.

“One of my colleague’s best friends, his best man at his wedding, is currently at Hedley Court (the military hospital in Surrey) after he lost both of his legs in Afghanistan. That kind of thing makes any difficulties in my life just fade into insignificance.”
