Wendy Buckthought

For True Dedication as a Help for Heroes Volunteer

Wendy Buckthought has been the volunteer County Co-ordinator in Cornwall since 2010; a very broad, mostly rural area which has been a challenge to cover. Wendy has attended many events all around the county and has managed a small team of volunteers with tireless energy and great warmth, everyone speaks of her friendliness; especially those at Plymouth Recovery Centre.

Often single handed, Wendy has supported the many Land’s End to John O’Groats challenge participants, giving them that proper Help for Heroes send off on their journey that inspires them to continue through this huge challenge.

Wendy has been instrumental in obtaining a free pitch at the Royal Cornwall Show for many years by using her local contacts. She, her family and her volunteer team work extremely hard over the 3 days and sell an amazing amount of H4H merchandise every year. Wendy is an inspiration to all who come into contact with her.
