Peter Barron

For Outstanding Support of Help for Heroes and Phoenix House

Peter Barron MBE has been a keen supporter of Help for Heroes and in particular Phoenix House Recovery Centre. 

For the past 17 years Peter has been the editor of The Northern Echo newspaper and his passion for campaigning to improve the lives of those who live in the North East of England has never wavered. 

Peter visited Phoenix House Recovery Centre early in 2013 and used his local influence and networking to open doors for Help for Heroes; both with a view to various fundraising events but also keeping the Charity in the public eye. Hardly a month goes by without some coverage of local fundraising events or Phoenix House news in the Northern Echo.

Peter was also instrumental in creating the wonderful BoB/BoS Fashion show in Catterick which he has hosted for the past three years and the Winter Ball of 2014. Peter is a true friend of Help for Heroes
