Join us this Christmas to support our Nation’s Heroes and their families.
We have been given a brilliant opportunity to bucket collect at Transport for London (TfL) Underground sites and needs lots of volunteers to help out.
Wounded, Injured and sick veterans (those we support) are significantly more at risk of being isolated, lonely, unemployed and of or having mental health problems than the UK population. This means having a hopeful and merry family Christmas can be unrealistic.
Together, we can tackle this and give them and their families the future they deserve.
If you can help by volunteering for a few hours, please complete the registration form.
We have the following stations available. When registering, there are four-time slots to choose from.
If you can’t decide what time to choose, the optimum collection times to drive donations for our wounded veterans and their families are between 7am – 10am and 4pm – 7pm.
They didn’t plan on becoming volunteers, but after unexpectedly enjoying one of Help for Heroes’ Tesco national collections a couple of years ago, Jacqui and Neil Hogg were determined to become part of a cause that “we should all be grateful for”.
The husband and wife from Staines had supported the Charity in the form of regular donations since its creation in 2007, and they said they were surprised by how they felt after meeting and speaking to the public.
Neil said: “We never really considered volunteering, and stupidly we just thought it was the military people who were doing it.
“But when we did the national collection (Tesco), we were shocked at the positive attitude and support for Help for Heroes from the public. It filled us with a really warm feeling and we decided there and then that we wanted to increase our support in any way we could.”
During the last two years, the couple has often been seen with their collection tin in and around London and have taken to Twickenham station in recent times ahead of rugby internationals, tin in hand.
They regularly hold stalls at supermarkets and events, and have planned an exciting collection this spring, namely, a trip to Windsor where the Hogg’s hope to capitalise on the jovial spirit of the Royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and raise some essential funds for our wounded, injured and sick Service Personnel.
