Help for Heroes - Dress Down Day at The Apartment Service by Bard Vos

As part of our ongoing charity commitment to celebrate our 30th Anniversary, the 22nd April (the day before St. George´s Day) was dedicated to Help For Heroes. The Apartment Service had a dress down day and all staff came to the office in their non-work attire.  

The charity Help For Heroes was founded in 2007 by Bryn and Emma Parry and a group of friends to help those men and women who have been injured in conflicts around the globe since 9/11. The charity benefits the Navy, the Army and the Royal Airforce.

The charity is supported by a host of well known people and HRH Prince William said during the opening of the Rehabilitation Centre at Headley Court in June 2010:

"Very occasionally, perhaps once or twice in a generation, something or someone pops up to change the entire landscape. Help 4 Heroes is one such phenomenon. What it has achieved here at Headley Court is, in truth, but the tip of the iceberg."

 

H4H at a glance:

* It is a young charity, founded in 2007

* We support those wounded in the service of our country since 9/11

* Rely heavily on (largely) volunteer network

* Not political, Not critical. "Just getting on with the job"

* Effective. Raised £89 million in just over three years.

 

H4H key messages:

 

  • It's about 'the blokes': those men and women of our Armed Forces who have been wounded in the service of our country since 9/11.
  • H4H provides direct, practical support for our wounded. We fund projects and initiatives that make a real difference to the lives of our wounded heroes.
  • We do not seek to criticise or be political. We just want to help and we work closely with the Army, Navy and RAF to provide support where it is most needed.
  • 'Money in, money out'. We spend all that we get and all our admin costs are covered by selling H4H merchandise through Help for Heroes Trading.
  • It's about doing your bit, no matter how big or small. Every fundraiser is special to us and can make a real difference, so please keep going!
