How your dough helps

Whether hosting a bake sale at work, at school or with friends, every cake you bake or buy makes a real difference to the lives of those who put their lives on the line for us.

Your fundraising helps veterans and those still serving to recover and get on with their lives by providing physical, psychological, career, financial and welfare support for as long as they need it. It also supports their families, because they too can be affected by their loved one’s wounds.

To date, more than 25,000 people have been supported, but many more still need help.

Your baking efforts will make sure every wounded veteran gets the help they deserve.

How your dough helps:

£12 can help us organise a virtual meet up and give veterans support, camaraderie and a listening ear.

£22 can pay for a phone call with one of our support workers and provide a lifeline to a veteran who feels alone.

£52 can support a veteran struggling with their mental health by providing a one-hour consultation with a member of our Hidden Wounds Team.

£150 could provide three families with an emergency food basket for a week.

£300 can fund mentoring support for a veteran who has started their own business.


Thank you once again for rising to the challenge.


Your fundraising helps veterans like Sean, whose military career came to an end when he was hit by a car and suffered two bleeds on the brain.

Before lockdown, Sean regularly visited our Hidden Wounds team at our Catterick Recovery Centre. Now, his sessions are being run via video call. "Without support from Help for Heroes during lockdown, I would not have got through it in the way I have,” he says.
