Help for Heroes

The seventh annual Hero Awards will recognise those who have gone above and beyond in their support of Help for Heroes and our wounded Servicemen and women. The awards include two in which the winner is chosen entirely by the public. 

  • The People’s Choice Award
    • For an outstanding supporter who has shown extraordinary dedication to Help for Heroes
  • The Junior Hero Award
    • For a supporter aged 16 or under who has shown astonishing commitment to the Charity’s cause

For those nominated for an award, it is not necessarily based on the amount of money they have raised. Rather, it is in recognition of their outstanding commitment and dedication to the cause.

Over the past seven years since the awards began, we have heard from countless wonderful supporters. Many took on huge personal challenges in order to raise money for the Charity. Others gave precious time to help our beneficiaries on their recovery journey. Some volunteered week after week to answer telephones, write letters and inspire others to help our Heroes.

Do you know anybody who deserves to get that pat on the back and be celebrated for their hard work for Help for Heroes?

It could be:

  • Local fundraisers
  • People who put others first
  • Volunteers who make a difference
  • Someone who has given that little bit more to show their support

If you would like to make a nomination for someone to be considered for a Hero Award, please send details of your nominee and the reason you feel they should win an award to nominations@helpforheroes.org.uk 

Nominations close on 31 July 2017.

Kath Ryan - 2016 Hero Award winner

Kath volunteered at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, which treats wounded Servicemen and women. She received numerous nominations for this award. In their own words, they said:

“The guys love her and she is such a support to them, always checking up on them to make sure they are okay and sending messages of support to them when they need it.”

“Kath does all this out of the kindness of her heart.”



Help for Heroes

Join us for an inspirational charity clay shoot during its 10th anniversary year, delivered by The Royal Berkshire Shooting School at Constable Burton Estate, North Yorkshire on Thursday 28 June 2018.

Whether you are an experienced or novice gun, the 2,500-acre Constable Burton Estate provides the perfect backdrop to a wonderful days clay shooting in the Yorkshire Dales. 

We are delighted to be working with the Royal Berkshire Shooting School to create a memorable and entertaining day, the first of its kind at Constable Burton, with kind permission of D'Arcy and Imogen Wyvill. 

Shooting will take place in four gun teams, with professional instructors on hand to offer help and guidance. The shoot will consist of a team competition across five drives, each replicating a particular game quarry, of 200 clays.
