Flying high with Flying for Freedom

Posted by: Help For Heroes | Categories: Bandstand

Flying for Freedom

Over the last few months we have had several gliding events across the country with Flying for Freedom.

Band of Brother Troy attended the event in Bedfordshire, and said: “I would like to thank everyone involved with organising today's microlight experience, especially Adam who piloted the aircraft. Prior to becoming injured in 2015 I was an active skydiver and para-glider. I feel at home when I’m way up high in the clouds - it’s the place I go to get away from all the stress in life. The flying experience has given me the confidence to start enjoying life again."

Emeli Sande Gig

We have also been donated a huge number of tickets for the Emeli Sande concert which were very popular. We hope those of you who got tickets had a lovely time! Leanne attended the event in Leeds and said “I just wanted to say thank you for allowing myself and my daughter to see Emeli Sande. It was absolutely fantastic and it was definitely a much-needed distraction to what has been a bit of a rough week, so a huge heartfelt thank you.”

In addition to the above, we have an exciting opportunity for Band of Brothers to take part in the annual Big Battlefield Bike Ride. The ride will take place in June 2018 and an email will be sent to all BoB in the next few weeks - please keep an eye out for this and put your name forward!
