“I am delighted to announce that IMHX 2010 has chosen Help for Heroes as its charity for this year’s event,” comments Rob Fisher, Exhibition Director for IMHX. “We are very pleased to be working with this highly commendable charity especially as the logistics industry can trace its roots back to the military, and there remains to this day a very strong synergy between our industry and the armed forces, with many ex-servicemen choosing it as a career.”

Rob explains: “We will be looking to organise a number of fundraising events at IMHX in support of Help for Heroes and are hoping that our exhibitors and visitors will dig deep.”

Help for Heroes is a charity that raises money to support wounded servicemen and their families. It was founded by Bryn and Emma Parry after a profoundly moving visit to Selly Oak Hospital in the summer of 2007. Bryn and Emma met some extraordinarily brave young people who had been badly wounded and they wanted to do something to help.

The charity was launched in October 2007 and, with the backing and support of celebrities, including Jeremy Clarkson, Andy McNab, James Blunt, Sir Ian Botham, the Royal Family, the media and countless ordinary people, it has raised over £44 million since then.
