JAMES MILNER VISITS HELP FOR HEROES TO SEE FUNDRAISING IN ACTION

James Milner visited Help for Heroes Recovery Centre, Tedworth House, to meet some of the beneficiaries the James Milner Foundation has helped through its latest donation of £50,000.

The Foundation’s donation contributed towards Help for Heroes Sports Academy programme which supports wounded, injured and sick military athletes using high performance sport as a way to rebuild their lives as part of their recovery. As part of the wider Help

for Heroes Sports Recovery programme, beneficiaries were also able to work towards a Personal Trainer Diploma, thanks to the Foundation’s support.

James met with Steve Arnold who lost his legs whilst serving in the Royal Engineers in Afghanistan.  Steve took up hand cycling with Help for Heroes and in 2013 was identified as talented and joined the British Cycling Development programme.

Steve said, “It was great to meet James.  Sport is a huge part of my life now after getting injured, it provides me with a purpose and James’ donation is so important to allow Help for Heroes to continue to provide that support.”
