Help for Heroes strives to achieve the best for the men and women of Great Britain’s Armed Forces, both serving and veteran. We are proud to work with other Service charities to make sure that the wounded, injured and sick get the support they deserve. Here is how Help for Heroes' grants have improved support for the families of those who become affected as a direct result of their service.
Help for Heroes have granted £81,000 to the Royal Maritime Club in Portsmouth to enhance the facilities offered to its visiting wounded heroes
The grant will allow greater accessibility to the naval heritage club’s 1950s building and will allow the club to realise their ambition to become the South Coast’s premier “R and R” facility for all Sailors, Veterans and their families.
The first project to commence will be a purpose built, specially adapted bedroom suite comprising double bedroom, en-suite wet room and adjoining carer’s (or children’s) room. The two existing “disability friendly” bedrooms will also be fully upgraded and refurbished.
During the year the club are now also able to install a new hydraulic platform lift linking the Club’s main ground floor with the Trafalgar Ballroom and its balcony facilities, ensuring that all visitors have easy access to the club’s facilities, functions and parties.
The Royal Maritime Club shares our passionate belief that our military and naval veterans and their families deserve nothing less than the very best that we can give them.
