Help for Heroes Patron, Ross Kemp is a passionate supporter and regular visitor to many parts of the Charity, including Tedworth House Recovery centre, where he spends time talking to veterans and their families about their recovery journeys. He’s also a familiar visitor to volunteers based at the Tin Hut, where he enjoys taking time out to chat to many volunteers about what they do and why they enjoy volunteering for Help for Heroes.
At the Tin Hut, he met with a regular volunteer and Band of Sister, Lesley McNab. Lesley has been volunteering for Help for Heroes for 3 years, enjoying the friendships she's made with other volunteers, staff and beneficiaries. She said, '' I enjoy the friendship of other volunteers and staff, and I love it when the beneficiaries come down from Tedworth House for a chat. I hope in some small way I’m giving something back to those who have given so much’’.
Her advice, ’’To anyone thinking of volunteering, do it! It’s a wonderful place, everyone is here because they want to be. It’s also great to go out bucket collecting and meeting the public and having a chat about what Help for Heroes can do".

Then Ross kindly took the time to help out us in the Trading team by having some pictures taken in our latest collection of t-shirts and hoodies. We think he makes a pretty good model! Take a look!
