In 2016 HIPPO were proud to be able to call Help for Heroes our charity of the year. This fantastic charity does some incredible work, best explained by their own website:
"Help for Heroes supports those with injuries and illnesses sustained while serving in the British Armed Forces. No matter when someone served, we give them the support they need to lead active, independent and fulfilling lives. Our specialist team focuses on the five key areas of an individual’s life: medical, mind, body, spirit and family. We provide support to the whole family to help them all cope with the challenges they face. Long-term recovery is more than repairing damaged bodies and minds; it’s about rebuilding lives."
Grand total raised: £1595.10
We did some great activities to raise funds for Help for Heroes, including:
- England Vs Wales Euro 2016 Team Colours Day
