Help for Heroes (H4H) is an independent British charity, founded by Bryn and Emma Parry in October 2007 out of a desire to help members of the Armed Forces who have been injured in the course of serving their country
Of the money raised to date for H4H, nearly all of it has been either spent or allocated to provide facilities and support services that benefit British servicemen and women injured in action. For more information on how money raised is spent visit click here.
In its brief history, the Charity has struck a chord with the British public and attracted some high profile backing from members of the royal family such as HRH Prince of Wales, HRH Princes William and Harry to members of the pop industry such as James Blunt, Simon Cowell and X Factor finalists who went onto release a chart topping hit “Hero” to raise funds for the Charity. It became the fastest selling charity single of the decade.
Patrons of the Charity include Ross Kemp, Monty Halls, James Blunt, Ken Hames and many others, as well as Founder Patrons Jeremy and Francie Clarkson.

Gard & co. raised £550.36 at the wine tasting and are also buying a table at the charity's dinner in November so will be donating a total of £950.
