Charity of the year
In 2012 we began a very successful partnership with Help for Heroes. 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.
Help for Heroes remain our national charity partner into 2021, as Moto in the Community looks to add to the £2.9 million raised since the partnership began.
Help for Heroes
Help for Heroes believes those who serve our country deserve support when they’re wounded.
Every day, men and women have to leave their career in the Armed Forces as a result of physical or psychological wounds; their lives changed forever. The Charity helps them, and those still serving, to recover and get on with their lives by providing physical, psychological, financial and welfare support for as long as they need it. It also supports their families, because they too can be affected by their loved one’s wounds.
Army veteran Mark’s life changed forever when his vehicle hit an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in Afghanistan. Losing the use of his right arm, he became angry and frustrated – the result of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) triggered by the blast. But, with support from the Charity, he’s rebuilt his strength, both physically and mentally, through the power of sport.
Help for Heroes receives almost no funding from the Government, which means it relies on the spirit and generosity of the great British public, its partners and volunteers to keep going. It has already supported more than 26,500 people and won’t stop until every wounded veteran gets the support they deserve.
