ADC supports Help for Heroes
Fiona Mundell from Robust UK is cycling from London to Paris in aid of Help for Heroes with the backing of the ADC team!
Help for Heroes is Britain’s biggest veteran charity. Founded on October 1st 2007 by Bryn and Emma Parry, the charity offers comprehensive support to those who have suffered life-changing injuries and illnesses while serving our country.
Help for Heroes provides direct, practical support to wounded, injured and sick Service personnel, veterans, and their families. This is provided through grants to individuals and other Service charities, capital build projects and support for life at our four Recovery Centres across the UK.
Help for Heroes estimates that up to 75,000 may need its support in the future for a psychological or physical issue – regardless of whether they were deployed or not. Official Ministry of Defence (MoD) data shows that 220,560 troops were deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq alone between January 2001 and March 2014. Tens of thousands more served in Bosnia, the first Gulf War, Northern Ireland, the Falklands and elsewhere. MoD data also shows that between 1995 and 2015, 32,036 men and women were Medically Discharged from the British Armed Forces.
Help for Heroes is committed to providing direct, practical support to individuals as well as building long-term support for their futures. As at May 2014, a total of £180m has been spent or allocated to specific areas of Recovery. 97% of this funding comes directly from the public.
Fiona Mundell from Robust UK is fundraising for the Help the Heroes by taking part in the London to Paris bike ride, and ADC are supporting their efforts. We urge you to join us in supporting Fiona and this great charity.
