Last month 8 Band of Brothers members made their way to sunny Malta for a diving trip which, unbeknown to them, would be a trip of a lifetime.
The Band of Brothers members set off on Tuesday 5 September and they were all novice divers. Gary attended and described the week: “The diving expedition was excellent. The organisation and logistics seemed to flow really well and the instructors were approachable, experienced and very knowledgeable.
"Learning to dive has been a goal of mine for many years and it was very satisfying to fulfil that goal, and to do so in such good company.
"The expedition has prompted me to enquire not only about further diving, but also about further contact with Help for Heroes. All in all I have found this a more-than-worthwhile experience and have a qualification at the end of it.”
This trip happens twice a year and is always a huge success. We will be advertising the next trip in the New Year so please keep an eye out for the email.
John Legend in concert
We were also donated a number of tickets to watch the one and only John Legend in concert at the Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham Arenas! We have received some really lovely feedback from those who attended, particularly Kiri who said: “Thank you so, so much for the tickets. The concert was absolutely incredible, by far exceeded my expectations! I'm trying to get tickets to see him again in Birmingham this week! Thank you so much for the opportunity to go.”
