One of Help for Heroes’ star fundraisers is the lovely Ethan Metcalfe, who has been fundraising for the charity for three years. To try and raise more money than previous events, Ethan came up with the idea of doing numerous activities, including a raffle with 13 prospective prizes, 10 of which were Help for Heroes (H4H) merchandise and 3 were vouchers provided by a local Photography company.
Ethan also did a name the H4H teddy game, which proved incredibly popular, and instead of the one big cake sale, Ethan and his family held several small cake sales just for family and friends. With the help of Ethan's Grandma, they raised a lot more money.
Ethan has been moved to tears by just how much he has been able to raise. He knows how important this money will be to H4H as his new favourite read is the H4H ‘Inspiring Heroes’ book, which helped him to see the different aspects of the charity.
His incredible effort has resulted in Ethan now raising over £600! He never dreamed of raising so much, with the initial target being £100! Ethan even donated £20 of his own money, £10 from his wallet for the teddy game & £10 in 5p's from his money jar when he was determined to hit £500.
As this event has drawn to a close, Ethan is now thinking of his next, bigger, better extravaganza fundraiser, although his family have still not managed to figure out a way to involve tanks!
We would like to say a huge thank you to Ethan for his continued support and for going above and beyond for our wounded, injured and sick heroes.
