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 the support available to individuals.
We donated £16,000 to Troop Aid, a wonderful group of volunteers who supply goodies to the hospital at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham to make a wounded patient's life a little better. The funding meant they were able to provide every patient injured while on active service a Troop Aid Hero Grab Bag. The bag contains all the 'nice to haves' like a t-shirt, underwear, socks, washing and shaving kit (or female equivalent) as well as other items like writing paper, a telephone card and memory stick.
