Ashfield School partnered with Help for Heroes in 2016, and raised over £34,000 for our wounded veterans and their families since. 

The partnership is lead by the wonderful Julie Taylor MBE, Head of Uniformed Services at Ashfield Post-16 Centre, and a registered volunteer for our charity.  

Ashfield School has helped raise funds and donate by hosting an annual fitness challenge, such as a triathlon or duathlon, which take place daily over a five day period. During lockdown, when the fitness challenges were unable to take place, the school continued to fundraise by making home-made face masks.

It is an absolute honour to be recognised in this way and I feel very humbled. I am privileged to work with the most dedicated of staff at Ashfield School, some truly inspiring students and their supportive families. It is rewarding to see so many of our students go on to serve their country in the military and civilian services and I am grateful to have played a part in their educational journey."
