Happy St David's Day from Help for Heroes

Posted by: Help For Heroes | Categories: General

1 March is upon us, and we would like to wish all our Welsh supporters, beneficiaries, volunteers and staff a very happy St David's Day! 

One example of how the Help for Heroes Quick Reaction Fund has improved lives in Wales is Martin. 

Martin from North Wales was injured in action in 2012 whilst serving in Afghanistan. He was shot through the hips which makes it impossible for him to climb stairs. To help him we purchased a single divan bed for him to use downstairs at home. We also provided 2 pay-as-you-go mobile phones for his family to keep in contact during his rehabilitation periods away from home.

Recently we launched Hero Ride at the stunning Cardiff Castle with Dr Dawn Porter and singer Nick Pendry! So, if you're a cyclist in Wales, show your patriotic side on St David's Day by signing up to the Dragon Dash and cycle from Cardiff to London as part of Hero Ride!  

Finally, if you live in Wales and have a few hours to spare, why not join our amazing volunteer network and support Help for Heroes. Click here to find out how to get involved with Help for Heroes!
