- Please take a note of the original order number from your email confirmations (or the "Your ref" field of the delivery note), to include on your free Royal Mail returns label
- Please let us know by writing on the original delivery note, which of the following reasons best fits why you are returning the product

Duplicate item / Order
Volunteer Merchandise Return

- Please include your original delivery note with return reason in the package
- Package, label and post your return
Please go to https://www.royalmail.com/track-my-return/pick-a-retailer to generate your FREE & tracked (UK only) postage label. In the "Pick a retailer" box, search for or enter "HELP FOR HEROES TRADING LIMITED"
The Royal Mail website will guide you through the steps to produce your returns label.
You can download the label and print it, or wait for the Royal Mail email containing a copy and print from there.
If you don't have a printer, take the Royal Mail returns label email (e.g. on a mobile or tablet screen) along with your packaged item to a Post Office branch or Royal Mail Customer Service Point. They will print the label for you.
Write the reasons for return on the original delivery note and place the completed form and goods inside your parcel, ideally using the original packaging. Apply your returns label ensuring you cover any previous shipping labels.
If your return will fit into a post or parcel post box, you can send it via this method and a digital proof of postage can be obtained through the Royal Mail App, which can be downloaded onto most smartphones, via this site: https://www.royalmail.com/downloadapp
Parcel post box locations can be found at this site: https://www.royalmail.com/d8/parcel-post-boxes
Alternatively, you can also take your parcel to any Post Office, where you can also request proof of postage.
The location of all branches and Customer Service Points can be found on the Royal Mail website.
Please note international returns or requesting the parcel to be collected from your home by Royal Mail will be at your own expense.
Alternatively please contact Supporter Care who will assist you in generating a label and mailing it to you.
To cancel your order you must do so:
(a) by written notice before the Products are delivered to you; or
(b) by written notice within 14 calendar days of receiving the Products in accordance with your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations
If you cancel your order in the circumstances set out in accordance with (a) or (b) above we will refund the product price in full together with the original delivery costs.
Before your refund can be processed you must return any products received, taking reasonable care of them and ensuring not to use them. Unfortunately once an order has been placed we are unable to stop it from being dispatched.
Please see the ‘How to Return’ section above for details on how to return a cancelled order for a refund.
Please note once your order has been placed there is no way to stop it from being despatched from our offsite warehouse. Whilst you can still ‘cancel’ this with us to ensure you receive a postage refund on return, we cannot process a refund until we have received the complete order back.
Goods should be returned in their original condition, ideally in the original packaging. Any damage noticed on receipt of the item should be highlighted on the returned delivery note as per above instructions.
Any refunds given by us will be refunded back onto the credit/debit card or via the PayPal account used for the original purchase.
