H4H Industry Ambassadors
Help for Heroes Industry Ambassadors are tasked with representing and promoting Help for Heroes into their business networks and communities.
They unlock networks, facilitate introductions and create relationships in support income generation for the Charity.
In short, our Industry Ambassador Programme is all about making friends, generating income and creating opportunities that respond to the organisational needs and objectives of Help for Heroes.
We have now appointed three Industry Ambassadors
Peter Eaton is Deputy Chairman of Halewood International, the UK’s largest independent drinks manufacturer and distributor. He has long been an admirer of Servicemen and women: “I’ve had close contact from an early age over many years with Ex-servicemen from the First World War all the way to the present day. My admiration for their bravery and sacrifice knows no bounds.”
Peter was inspired to become involved with Help for Heroes after learning about its founders, Bryn and Emma Parry: “Hearing their tremendous story of how they fought against all the odds to make Tedworth House happen, made me feel so humble and also made me realise how lucky myself and my family are to not be affected by war. For me to be involved knowing every penny raised and every effort given is going towards, in my opinion, one of the most worthwhile causes is very exciting.”
Part of wounded Servicemen and women’s recovery is finding a new purpose in life after their time in the military. For any beneficiaries looking to move into a new career, Peter recommends: “Sheer determination and hard work, there is no secret! Be as open-minded as you can because, unfortunately, most people have absolutely no idea of what you have been through, so try to be patient with them. Life is full of twists and turns. I’m a firm believer in taking every day a day at a time.”
