We have decided to support two particular service charities in our Arch 2 Arc challenge:
Help for Heroes was established in 2007 to raise money initially for Headley Court Rehabilitation Centre, tending for wounded service personnel. It has grown exponentially, and has become an overarching charity that, in addition to funding specific projects, helps to fund other service charities.
The Household Division Charity was established in 2010 to raise money for the Household Division – the Household Cavalry (Life Guards and Blues & Royals) and the five Foot Guards regiments (Grenadier, Coldstream, Scots, Irish and Welsh). With five of the six Guards Rally team members being serving or former members of the Household Division , it was felt appropriate that we should nominate this as our other charity. Money raised predominantly goes towards those injured, those in need, hardship or distress who are serving, have served or whose families have served in the Household Division.
