RoyaleLife, the country’s leader in bungalow living, has donated £11,000 to military charity Help for Heroes.
The company says the move marks its support for the UK’s wounded Veterans and forms part of its bid to support worthy causes in 2019.
Chief executive Robert Bull visited Help for Heroes’ Tedworth House Recovery Centre in Tidworth this week to donate the cheque and find out how the money will fund vital services for serving and ex-military.
He said: “The UK’s Armed Forces community makes sacrifices for the good of us all so it’s really important for us to recognise what they do and show our appreciation. Help for Heroes does a fantastic job in supporting both serving and Veteran Forces personnel and we are thrilled to contribute towards its work.”
Help for Heroes was launched in 2007 to help British servicemen and women and aims to provide direct, practical support to individuals as well as build long-term support for their futures through its grant giving capabilities as well as its four Help for Heroes Recovery Centres.
The £11,000 donation from RoyaleLife could be used to fund a Functional Skills tutor for four months, teaching essential English and maths skills; 50% of a year-long Pathfinder programme, helping Veterans find their new path in life; or a range of Health and Physical Wellbeing activities, from swimming and skiing to yoga and archery.
Paul Randall, Recovery Manager South, said “This is an incredibly kind donation from RoyaleLife. It will help us support wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women, Veterans and their families. Those who put their lives on the line for us deserve a second chance at life, and it is through the ongoing generosity of donors such as RoyaleLife that we are able to provide a lifetime of support for the Armed Forces community.”
