Help for Heroes (H4H) was founded by Bryn and Emma Parry who were moved to ‘do their bit’ after a visit to Selly Oak Hospital in 2007.  Help for Heroes was launched on 1 October 2007.

On May 22nd 2013 Heroes Challenge UK will commence at John O’Groats, Scotland. This incredible challenge encompasses all part of the UK, and is a unique and physically demanding event, which aims to raise £100,000 for Help for Heroes. The event will cover 1283 miles of the UK by land, sea and air – a challenge which to date has not been achieved.
