VOLUNTEERS from Help for Heroes Worcestershire raised £900 in donations with an additional £666 in merchandise sales at the Wartime in the Vale show held at Ashdown Camp in Badsey near Evesham.

In reaching out to veterans Help for Heroes are working closely with another military charity SSAFA,the MoD and the NHS to ensure that as many veterans as possible are aware of the support available and that the support is there when required.

Help for Heroes have recently funded the NHS Veterans Programme with grants to ensure the care is there.

Ian Baldry,Worcestershire county co-ordinator for Help for Heroes said “ As always we are most grateful to the show organiser Amy Jelfs and the camp manager Emma James for once again kindly inviting us to attend this most enjoyable show.

“Our thanks and appreciation to members of the attending public who very kindly made a donation or purchased some merchandise”.

During Armed Forces Week next week, bakers of Britain are joining the nation’s biggest bake sale under the banner of Bake for Heroes. If you would like to participate then please visit or call 0300 303 9888
