London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 16, 2009 -- Help 4 Heroes was founded in October 2007 by Bryn and Emma Parry. Their sole intention was to help the Men and Women injured in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Charity is non-political and non critical, but supports the service personnel who volunteer to put their life's at risk. Providing support for those who are injured and helping to get them better.
Help 4 Heroes supports Injured Armed Servicemen and women, by raising funds for a number of charities involved in the care of those who are injured. Below is a list of recent donations made to Charities:
Army RecoveryCentre Â£10,000,000
Army Recovery Centres (ARC) will help soldiers to make the swiftest possible return to duty, or smoothest transition to an appropriately skilled and supported civilian life, for seriously wounded, injured, or long-term sick soldiers, irrespective of cause of injury, within a conducive military setting.
Not Forgotten Association Â£60,000
There are thousands of disabled ex-servicemen and women in this country. They have been injured in conflicts around the globe over many decades. Now most of them are elderly and often frail and although their essential needs may be provided for, The "Not Forgotten" Association is able to give them some of the "extras" which most of us take for granted, something to look forward to - something to make life worth living. Those eligible are ex-service or serving men and women who have a War Pension or are in receipt of compensation from the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme or who are currently suffering from some form of ill-health. We ensure that they are not forgotten by providing the following "entertainment" which brings a little happiness and joy into their lives:
To top up the funding for four injured former forces personnel to undergo diving rehabilitation in Florida at a specialist facility alongside the US Forces.
British Limbless Ex Service Men's Association (BLESMA) Â£100,000
BLESMA (British Limbless Ex Service Men's Association) is the national charity for limbless serving and ex service men and women and their dependants and widows.
Erskine Hospital Â£750,000
To accelerate the launch of the regional Recovery Houses by funding a twelve month pathfinder for the Army. This will provide accommodation for twelve wounded servicemen, or women, and is to be hosted at Erskine Hospital in Edinburgh.
Skill Force Â£224,300
To design and deliver an Internship Programme for up to twenty servicemen, or women, (over two years) in the three services recovering from physical and psychological injuries sustained during active service.
Troop Aid Â£50,000
We have long wanted to follow in the footsteps of the USA's Wounded Warrior program and supply Hero Grab Bags to everyone who goes through our hospitals in Iraq, Afghanistan and Selly Oak. Servicemen and women, injured on duty, often have to wait for their kit to catch up with them, sometimes it has been destroyed in the incident in which they were hurt. The idea is for each of them to get a present to show how much we appreciate them.
Battle Back Â£308,000
Identify, facilitate and encourage adaptive Adventurous Training (AT) and Sport opportunities for wounded Service personnel.
Combat Stress Â£3,500,000
Combat Stress is the leading charity specialising in the care of British Veterans who have been profoundly traumatised by harrowing experiences during their Service career.
Selly Oak Patients Welfare Fund Â£10,000
We are delighted to have been able to contribute to this very simple idea. We put Â£10,000 aside for the Military Liaison Officer's funds at Selly Oak. That money enables the MLOs to take the patients and their relatives out for a pizza or a curry while they are at Selly Oak and for them to start getting used to being seen in public.
Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) Â£520,000
We help and support those who serve in our Armed Forces and those who used to serve - even if it was only for a single day. We also care for the families of both.
DMRC Headley Court Â£8,000,000
The Peter Long unit is an inpatient care facility split between two wards offering 66 inpatient beds to injured service personnel from all service disciplines under going rehabilitation at DMRC Headley Court.
