About Help for Heroes
Help for Heroes (H4H) is an independent British charity, founded by Bryn and Emma Parry in October 2007.
It came out of a desire to help members of the Armed Forces who have been injured in the course of serving their country
- Of the money raised for H4H, £61m to date, all of it has been either spent or allocated to provide facilities and support services that benefit British servicemen and women injured in action. Find out more about how your money is spent
- Help for Heroes is strictly non-political and non-critical. Our message is simple: H4H does not seek to criticise or be political, we simply want to help and to do so by asking everyone to ‘do their bit’ to raise money. Once that money is raised, we go to the experts in the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force for guidance as to how best to spend it. It is our intention to spend all we raise on the practical, direct support of those wounded in the service of our country since 9/11
- In its brief history, the Charity has struck a chord with the British public and attracted some high profile backing from members of the royal family such as HRH Prince of Wales, HRH Princes William and Harry to members of the pop industry such as James Blunt, Simon Cowell and X Factor finalists who went onto release a chart topping hit “Hero” to raise funds for the Charity. It became the fastest selling charity single of the decade
- Patrons of the charity include Ross Kemp, Monty Halls, James Blunt, Ken Hames, as well as Founder Patrons Jeremy and Francie Clarkson
