Slightly Unusual are proud to be an
authorised fund raiser for the Help for Heroes Charity.
We arrange a number of Magical Charity Fundraising
events each year, designed to raise as much money as
possible. In May 2012 Slightly Unusual spent three weeks
at The Brighton Fringe Festival which is the largest
Fringe Festival in England. All the profit from this
three week run was donated to Help For Heroes.
Help for Heroes was founded by Bryn and Emma Parry in
October 2007 out of a desire to help the wounded
Servicemen and women returning from Afghanistan and
Iraq. The message of the charity is simple: They are
strictly non political and non critical; they simply
want to help. They believe that anyone who volunteers to
serve in time of war, knowing that they may risk all, is
a hero. These are ordinary people doing extraordinary
things and some of them are living with the consequences
of their service for life. They may not be able to
prevent our soldiers from being wounded, but together we
can help them get better.
Help for Heroes raises money to support members of the
Armed Forces who have been wounded in the service of
their country. They ask their supporters to 'do their
bit' to show these extraordinary young men and women
that they are cared for by the general public. Over a
million people have responded to date and millions of
pounds have been raised to buy much needed services that
will aid their recovery, but they need more! So far,
they have allocated almost all of the money they have
raised in order to fund direct projects and support
other service charities.
We are constantly planning Fundraising events throughout
the year so if you would like to get involved let us
know - we would love the support.
