Comment by Andy McNab:
“I AM proud to be a patron of Help for Heroes which is making a positive impact on troops’ lives — but this is just the beginning. These brave men and women will need our support for many years to come.
 
Your money not only goes towards the big stuff, like a pool and gym at Headley Court. 
It also provides the Troop Aid “Hero Grab Bags” containing washing kit, a T-shirt, underwear, socks and a phone card given to Our Boys and Girls on admission to hospital.
 
Your donations allow them to leave hospital for an hour for a pie and a pint with loved ones. The money also helps those scarred by post-traumatic stress disorder.
 
Our troops deserve 21st century care for wounds inflicted by modern warfare. The best way to support them is by giving to H4H.”
