Trading invited Georgie and her family to share their story and take part in a festive socially distanced photoshoot! Kindly modelling our best Christmas sellers with her husband Darren and their two children Kyle and Alfie.
“It’s a huge honour to be asked to do this. It’s nice to have my children involved. It’s means so much more than an item of clothing. The money that it generates, I see where that money goes. I’ve benefited from that money and I’ve seen a lot of other people who need that support.”
RAF Sergeant Georgie Smith is still serving, despite being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a condition which would normally lead to a medical discharge. Georgie became involved with Help for Heroes through sports recovery and led Team UK at last year’s Warrior Games. She says “I love the sports recovery, I really missed it during lockdown. As long as I can keep competing, keep strong, keep training, that’s the important things for me, and that’s what Help for Heroes has given me.”
“My family has benefited from me having a good sense of wellbeing about myself and positive mental health. I think the way that Help for Heroes challenge you, without you necessarily knowing, you can’t buy that! It’s allowed me to be a strong mum.”
