James becomes an official Ambassador for Help For Heroes

The James Milner Foundation has supported the Help For Heroes charity since the Foundation’s inception in April 2012. Prior to ‘The Night Before Christmas’ Charity Ball last week James has became an official ambassador for Help For Heroes.

“I am pleased to become an ambassador for Help For Heroes. It is such a great charity doing amazing work to help support our servicemen and servicewomen. The James Milner Foundation has supported different initiatives with the Help For Heroes sports recovery programme but I am pleased to personally become an ambassador. I look forward to contributing to all the good work that Help For Heroes carries out”, commented James on his announcement as ambassador.

Help for Heroes was founded in 2007 to provide direct, practical support for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen, women, veterans and their loved ones. Help For Heroes provide this via:

  • Grants to Individuals
  • Grants to Specialist Charity Partners
  • Recovery Services delivered through out network of H4H Recovery Centres

The Help Foe Heroes mission is to deliver an enduring national network of support for our wounded and their families. Help Foe Heroes will inspire and enable those who have made sacrifices on our behalf to achieve their full potential. 
In the 12 months leading up to March 2015 they have helpe
d over 4,000 Veterans and military personnel – and their families – through their network of Recovery Centres. The war in Afghanistan may be over, but for those who have suffered life-changing injuries, their battles are just beginning. They’ve estimated that, of the 220,560 individuals deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq between 2001 and 2014, up to 75,000 servicemen and women (and their families) may need our support in the future. Help For Heroes will not let them fight these battles alone.
