Irene and Kerry Furlong, Volunteers
Edinburgh based mother and daughter Irene and Kerry Furlong volunteer together for Help for Heroes, organising collections and events, and took part in our Bake for Heroes campaign.
Kerry said: “Mum and Dad were both in the army. The military wasn’t for me but volunteering is my way of serving and remembering my Dad.” Mum Irene added: “I wanted to help the people who did not have help as I was one of the lucky ones.”
The pair both agree that they like having the Scottish flag (saltire) on the new hoodies and t-shirts.
Kerry said: “I feel proud wearing it – it’s good to get a chance to show them off!.”
