Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page in support of Help for Heroes.
Everyone knows the fantastic job our service personnel do in extremely difficult conditions. Many of them are now being wounded in the line of duty and are often the unsung heroes of Her Majesty's forces campaigning overseas.
Over coffee one day a few of us were discussing the tremendous contribution the village of Wootton Bassett gives in paying respects to those heroes who pay the ultimate price to ensure the freedom of others, and we all decided we would like to raise some money for their injured colleagues.
Our team is comprised of 2 ex-servicemen, a reservist, an MoD civil servant and a BBCM colleague who works on the MoD customer relationship. Given Monitoring's business support to the MoD, and therefore indirectly to frontline forces, we thought it appropriate to sponsor this good cause, thus allowing us all the opportunity to give personally.
While we are not able to mount a large-scale expedition to raise huge amounts for this worthy cause we nevertheless wanted to make a contribution by suffering the rigours of riding in excess of 60 miles in one day by riding on cycles from Caversham Park to MOD Main Building on Whitehall.
So please dig deep and donate now, and remember to tick the gift aid option to maximise the amounts raised for this worthwhile cause by getting the taxman to join in too!
