A collection which took place in Tesco’s Oak Tree superstore last month raised £1,522 for Help For Heroes.

Help for Heroes is a registered charity which helps injured veterans and those still serving, to recover and get on with their lives by providing physical, psychological, financial and welfare support for as long as they need it.

Receiving almost no funding from the Government, the charity relies on the spirit and generosity of the great British public, its partners and volunteers to keep going.
