Help for Heroes (H4H) is asking the great British public to get baking to raise ‘hundreds and thousands’ for our wounded, injured and sick service personnel, veterans and their families.
The ‘Bake for Heroes’ campaign will run from April 18 to May 4, however if this isn’t convenient you can choose a date that is. To register, or for more information visit www.bakeforheroes.org.uk or call 01980 846459.
To get involved you could get friends and neighbours over for tea and a slice of cake in exchange for a donation, or hold a bake sale in the middle of the town and sell lovely treats to passers-by. Every single baked delight that is created, sold and eaten makes a difference to the support H4H can provide.
A free fund-raising pack will be sent to every Bake for Heroes event organiser to help make each event a success. The packs include H4H wristbands, lapel pins, collecting boxes, bunting, balloons and pricing stickers.
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 illness 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. 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; H4H will not let them battle alone.
