Help for Heroes Day - Friday 14th October
On Friday14th October, Real Radio held a special Help For Heroes Day to raise money to support our wounded. Last year they managed to raise more than £345,000 towards providing aid and building therapy centres across the UK and this year they wanted to top that. The charity Help for Heroes was launched in October 2007 in response to the desire of ordinary people to do something practical to help our wounded servicemen and women.
Arriva North East held a raffle and collection at head office and managed to raise £164.00 to help the fundraising campaign. Massive thanks go to everyone who contributed and Brenda Stanness, who organised the raffle.
