Jo & Matt

Categories: Facing It Together

Prepare to be inspired by serving soldier, beneficiary and Invictus Games medal winner Jo Hursey and Help For Heroes supporter (aka the 'Fridge Hiker') Matthew Bamber.

As the remarkable pair tell each other their stories, they realise each is driven to extraordinary lengths to achieve their goals.

In the emotionally-charged footage, Jo, whose traumatic experiences in Northern Ireland have left her with PTSD and an anxiety disorder, tells Matt why the support from Help for Heroes fundraisers is so crucial and is changing lives like hers every day.

But Matt, who trekked 50 miles over heavy Lake District terrain with a fridge strapped to his back, says he is just an ordinary guy who wants to give something back to people like Jo.

They both say meeting each other is a humbling experience, but only makes them more determined to keep pushing themselves to their limits.
