Help for Heroes December Newsletter...

On 12th November, a team from H4H went up to Headley Court to take part in the Topping Out ceremony.


We were very privileged to be given a guided tour by the builders and all those who are working so hard to finish the building in record time.

For H4H this is far more than the creation of a building, this was our first task and this was the focus for our initial fund raising; this is what inspired you to help.

When Emma and I decided to do our bit to help, we asked General Sir Richard Dannatt what we could do, what did he need?

He said he wanted the blokes to have their own pool rather than be taken to the public pool in Leatherhead. We passed the message on to the people of this country, not having a clue what to expect...

And look what happened!

Money poured in and itís still pouring in at a rate of over £1m a month as the ordinary decent people of this country, thatís you, do your bit for the blokes.

So, the Help for Heroes Rehabilitation Complex will be superb, it will have a wow factor, it will be worthy of the blokes who will use it and you have made that happen. We know several young men, friends, who will use the facility and we just canít wait for the day that it is all operational.

We are pushing ahead with fund raising for the Recovery Centres and I understand from the Army that the plans are progressing very well so I should have some good news to relay shortly.

Our Launch Pad to Life appeal is going brilliantly and we are on target to raise the £20m by next March if we all keep the pedal to the floor... Donít stop!

All of us at H4H are working our socks off and we are getting busier by the day as we deal with the huge support that is coming from you. We are humbled by the realisation that so many people are working in this huge team and we are so grateful for everything you are doing. Keep at it and thanks!

Onwards and Upwards...

MSMAS will continue to do our bit !!
