After supporting Help for Heroes for 4 years and having raised over £32000 for them we have decided to adopt the Royal Marines charity, Help our Wounded. I know we can count on your to support this worthwhile charity, when it comes to raising money for charity the Tavernites are the best.
The fundraising will kick off this weekend with help from the fabulous Chill, collection pots will be placed on the bar and any donations regardless of how small will be gratefully received.
HELP OUR WOUNDED is helping to raise funds in aid of the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund Registered No 1134205. HOW was formed on the 4th March 2010.
To provide ongoing financial help not only for today or tomorrow, but for life. A number of Royal Marines are double or triple amputees, some suffering from blindness and disfigurement. The conditions which our injured Royal Marines find themselves in has a long term impact on their standards of living. These men and there families need long term financial help, and to help provide suitable employment for our most seriously disabled lads some into becoming professional fundraisers and to look at other forms of employment to suit their disabilities.
