|Reunion 2012 thank you letter|
I recieved this yesterday from Help for Heroes.(quote)
Thank you so much for your donation of £110-00to Help for Heroes(H4H)
We appreciate every penny that comes in and will ensure that it is put to use providing direct ,practical support for the men and woman who are wounded while in service of our country.
When Emma and i decided to do `our bit`,we had no idea so many people across the U K would decide to join us and together,create the Help for Heroes phenomenon.
We are proud parents of a Soldier and know what it is to have him away fighting.
We also know what it is like to see his friends injured with their lives changed forever.
We cannot prevent these terrible injuries,but by joining together with others in support,we can do something positive and help them on their road to recovery.
Since its launch in October 2007,H4H raised over £100m and funded a variety of projects that are already making a big difference.
For example,the £8m Reahabilitation Complex at Headley Court;a new £3;5m treatment centre for Combat Stress; Adaptive Adventure Training through the battle Back programme;and the creation of a £6 Quick Reaction Fund to support individuals within 72 hours of the need being identified.
The next project for H4H,which your donation will go towards,aims to ensure those wounded while in service get the very best support;for life,H4H is working in partnership with the M O D and the Royal British Legion,to deliver the Defence Recovery Capability(DRC)-a comprehensive pathway to help the wounded launch back into the next phase of their lives.4H4commited £100m to the DRC,which not only ensures that those who leave service get jobs,but that they have access to a comprehensive range of support whatever their needs.
Our work is by no means over.
There is a great deal to do,but your contribution will make a great difference to the lives of some very special people.
On behalf of all of us at 4H4 and all those who we will help.
Bryn Parry OBE.
Emma parry OBE.
