Monday, 14th November - Help for Heroes

Nothing more interesting than putting some coins in a collection tin in the Royal Oak in Marlborough in aid of Help for Heroes.

Help For Heroes is the charity that does exactly what it says on the tin.
Help for Heroes strives towards 100% effectiveness – so that for every £1 donated, £1 will go directly to helping wounded Servicemen and women. So, we do exactly what we say on the tin – your donations go directly to supporting the wounded boys and girls.

How do we do this?
We do of course have running costs but these are kept as low as possible, and the costs we do have? Well those are covered by the sale of our fantastic Help for Heroes merchandise. Every t-shirt, mug, wristband and calendar sold ensures that the money you donate goes to the men and women who need it, not office bills!

In fact, thanks to the range of challenges we hold through the year and our H4H shop, last year we actually made more than we needed to run the charity. So, of course, the rest goes to the wounded.

What do we spend your money on?
We spend every penny possible on making grants that aim to provide practical, direct support for our wounded.
