HOW YOUR FUNDRAISING WILL HELP

However you choose to fundraise, you’ll be helping wounded veterans to overcome their daily battles and thrive. 

Derek lost both his legs when his vehicle hit a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. For he and his wife Ana, life changed beyond recognition. Derek was told he would never walk again.

But against all odds, Derek did learn to walk again, and just five years after being injured, was selected to represent Team GB at the Paralympic Games.

Let his story inspire you...

HEAR IT FROM OUR FUNDRAISERS

Ethan's been fundraising for our heroes since he was just seven years old - now 15, he's got more events under his belt than we've had hot dinners!

He's taken on bake sales, raffles, fun runs, hero fancy dress days, a mud bucket challenge, a triathlon, table top sales, sponsored walks, cycles... and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

"I began fundraising when I was young because people in the forces were my heroes and I wanted to do something for them. As I got older, I became more aware of the crucial work Help for Heroes does, and the difference they make to people's lives. Whether you raise £5 or thousands, it will help make the difference."

He's raised more than £3,000 so far - an inspiration to us all!

David Brown is something of a legend here at Help for Heroes. He's been baking for the people of Beccles since 2009 in support of our wounded. So far, he's raised more than £100,000 and he's just set his sights on a further £50,000!

David started fundraising with his late wife, Pat, after his daughter returned from Afghanistan. It's safe to say he's never looked back! He shares his top three tips for fundraising success...

1. Believe 100% in the charity you are fundraising for and give it your all

2. Be pleased to see people, whatever sums they donate, large or small

3. Be prepared for any weather, don’t be a fair weather fundraiser!
