Help for Heroes relies on our amazing family of fundraising volunteers to ensure we can be there to support those who need us, when they need us.
Abigail, Marcus and Ffion Bernard have been part of our wonderful volunteer team for four years.
They joined us for a socially distanced photoshoot in Cardiff to explain why they give up their time for the charity.
Abigail shared a powerful moment from one fundraising event she attended last year, “An ex-serviceman came up to me and shared his story, he needed help. As a volunteer I was able to talk about the recovery services Help for Heroes delivers and could point him in the right direction to get the help he needed.”
“We’re delighted to have been asked to model for Help for Heroes at the time. We’ve not been able to go out and collect over the last few months, which we’d usually do, so it’s great to be able to do something to raise awareness and encourage people to support the charity.” - Abigail
“We don’t come from military families, but we know what our service personnel are willing to sacrifice when they join the armed forces. Fundraising for Help for Heroes is our way of saying thank you to them, for all they are willing to put on the line to protect us.” - Marcus
“Help for Heroes relies on the generosity of the public to keep supporting our Armed Forces community who are ill or injured, and hopefully people will do their bit and buy a t-shirt or hoodie, or wear a wristband to show their support too!” - Ffion
