Here at The Shires, we are excited to announce that the Rally For Heroes team will be visiting the shopping centre on Sunday 24th of November 2019 raising money for SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity.
SSAFA provides lifelong support to serving Armed Forces personnel (both regular and reserves), veterans, and their families. In 2018 SSAFA teams helped more than 82,000 people from the Second Wolrd War veterans to those involved in more recent conflicts, and their families. SSAFA recognise that behind every uniform is a person - and sometimes that person, or their family, is in need of help.
Rally For Heroes is a driving challenge that takes place over 10 days, visiting 10 countries and covering 3,000 miles to honour the fallen. Every five miles driven represents a member of the Armed Forces lost in action since the start of the Afghanistan campaign.
In 2018, the event involved 112 people in 60 cars and together they raised a record £145,000! Participants cover all costs of the challenge themselves allowing 100% of all funds raised to go to SSAFA. To date, Rally For Heroes has raised over £350,000 for SSAFA since 2014 to help our Armed Forces Community.
In 2020 the Rally For Heroes team will be repeating the event again and their target is £100,000.
Why don't you come over and visit the Rally For Heroes stand and learn more about their event and SSAFA.
Let's help the Rally For Heroes team reach their target.
Thank you for your support!
