Wales Updates

Ruth -updated

There have been quite a few events happening in and around Wales this month. We have also been welcoming a few new Welsh members to our gang!

Our ‘blokes’ and their families had a petrol fueled, fun day out at Monster Jam this month in Cardiff! The Monsters were brought over from America especially for a spectacular one off event.

The looks of pure glee on Darren Carew’s and Geraint Hilliard’s faces and to watch them relive childhood fantasies was truly an awesome experience in itself. It was not all about the big boys though, one of our amazing Hero Kids got to meet his Hero, the driver of “Ell-Torro” and he received an autographed hat and a hug which was pure magic!

We also had a wonderful last minute invite from the Principality Stadium to the “Party in the Pits” where everyone got to get up close and personal with the Beasty Machines, specially designed monster truck slushy cups, the MotorX bikes and their drivers!

All the hero kids had an excellent time and the funny face competition was brilliant.

Band of Brother Quote of the day

“I can remember watching “Grave Digger” when I was my sons age and dreaming of going to America to see him in action. I can`t believe I am here and that Help for Heroes have made my childhood fantasy come true! Thank you”.

We also got to meet some wonderful families this month from North Wales. Everyone met on the Isle of Anglesey and visited the most amazing Zoo Aquarium! We had fun learning about strange creatures from the deep, watch baby sharks being hatched from their eggs and had fun with the interactive under water cameras!

Band of Sister Quote of the Day

“Thank you. It has been so wonderful meeting lovely new families! We will definitely be keeping in touch with each other. If it wasn’t for Help for Heroes we never would have met like-minded fun people like us”.
