Charity of the year
In 2012 we began a very successful partnership with Help for Heroes and we are proud to have continued this relationship through 2013 – 2016. It’s a fantastic charity which raises money to support members of the armed forces who have been wounded in the service of their country.
The decision has now been unanimously taken to continue this fantastic partnership into 2017 and beyond.
The Moto in the Community Trust and staff at Moto are looking forward to raising as much money as possible for Help for Heroes as well as supporting our local community partnerships.
Help for Heroes
Help for Heroes (H4H) provides direct, practical support to those who’ve suffered injury or illness while serving in the British Armed Forces.
Help for Heroes – What they do
• Run a national network of support based around four H4H Recovery Centres at Tidworth, Catterick, Colchester and Plymouth. Access to a range of courses, sports recovery activities, psychological wellbeing support and welfare advice are available whenever needed.
• Have provided over 10,000 grants to individuals, totalling over £12m, to help the wounded, injured and sick and their loved ones with immediate financial support to help with things like accommodation and travel costs for families during hospital stays, home adaptations and specialist equipment.
• Work with 60 specialist charity partners such as Combat Stress and Blind veterans UK, and provide grants totalling over £31m to enable them to deliver their services and support.
• H4H’s specialist team focuses on five key areas of an individual’s life: medical, mind, body, spirit and family
• Provides friendship, support and a listening ear through the H4H Band of Brothers and Band of Sisters fellowship groups which have over 7,000 members and counting. Activities, events, special offers and respite weekends are organised throughout the year.
No matter when someone served, H4H gives them the support they need to lead active, independent and fulfilling lives.
