The Security Institute has chosen Help for Heroes as the designated Chairman’s Charity for 2015.
Security Institute Director, Richard Bell said “We try to select a charity partner that will be highly relevant to our membership and which we believe is making a significant difference to the lives of the people it aims to help. Many of our members have served in the military and whilst they have been fortunate to be able to forge new careers in security upon leaving the armed services, many of their former colleagues face significant challenges as a result of injuries suffered in the line of duty.”
Bell’s comments were endorsed by Institute Chairman, Emma Shaw, “We are immensely proud to be supporting a charity that has achieved so much in a relatively short space of time. Last year we gave almost £30,000 to our charity partner and I am confident that we can surpass that figure in 2015. We have a number of fund-raising activities planned throughout the coming year and will be seeking to raise awareness of Help for Heroes at all our events.”
Bryn Parry, Co-Founder of Help for Heroes: “We’d like to thank The Security Institute for choosing Help for Heroes as its Chairman’s Charity for 2015. The fact that members of the institute have military links and want to 'do their bit' to support their colleagues means a great deal to our Heroes and their families. The support of organisations like The Security Institute will make a real difference to the lives of some very brave men and women and enable H4H to ensure support is there for them whenever it is needed.”
