HELP for Heroes (H4H) are asking that when you BBQ, you BBQ for Heroes and turn it in to an opportunity to fundraise for our wounded, injured and sick service personnel, veterans and their families. The 'BBQ for Heroes' campaign takes place, from 16 July to 31 July 2016, however if this isn't convenient please feel free to choose a date that is. To register or for more information visit:- BBQForHeroes.Org.UK or call:- 01980 846459.

Whether you invite family and friends over for a BBQ in your garden in exchange for a donation or arrange a bigger community event, it all makes a difference to the support H4H can provide. Everyone who registers and raises money for H4H will be entered in to prize draw to win a Weber 2200 Portable Black Glass barbecue, which has kindly been donated by Debenhams.

A free fundraising pack will be sent to everyone who registers a BBQ for Heroes event, to help make each event a success. The packs include collection boxes, bunting, balloons, a BBQ for Heroes banner, plus additional items.

Emma Parry, CEO and co-founder, Help for Heroes said:- "H4H is all about 'doing your bit' and this event is a wonderful example of people rallying support and having a great deal of fun while they raise money. The money you raise is needed, it is being used and it is hugely appreciated."

H4H offers comprehensive support to those who have suffered life changing injuries and illnesses in the line of duty. This is provided through grants to individuals, other charities and organisations, capital build projects and four Recovery Centres across the UK which offer support for life. The money raised by the hugely generous public has been used to support the wounded, but there is still so much more to do. Soldiers, sailors and airmen who are injured today will still need our support tomorrow and in the days that follow, for the rest of their lives. They are still battling and H4H will not let them battle alone.  For more information about Help for Heroes, please visit:- HelpForHeroes.Org.UK.
