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 opportunities for veterans.
VC and GC Association Benevolent Fund
Help for Heroes have granted £14,711k to support wounded, injured and sick recipients of the George Cross and George Medal to attend a 75th Anniversary event held in London in on 24th September 2015.
The event aimed to establish and reinforce a network of gallantry medal holders, raising public awareness of their action and the need to support these brave heroes.
Grant funding was used to cover the travel and accomodation costs to enable wounded, injured and sick medal holders to attend the event.
