Help for Heroes
Hello and Welcome from Nick Burt
H4H 4X4 European Rally 2012
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page.
Following the success of the inaugural 2010 & 2011 events, which has raised over £1/4 million we can now announce that theHELP for HEROES 4x4 European Rally 2012 will be starting at Noon on Saturday
16th June 2012 at Littlecote House Hotel, Hungerford. The event follows the path and tells the story of the Allied Invasion through Europe and includes parts fabled by the Band of Brothers book and television series. As young men, who knew extraordinary bravery
and extraordinary fear, the Allied Forces landed in France early on D-Day morning – 6th June 1944. The liberation of Europe had commenced. That history will unfold as your journey progresses; some parts of the route will also include areas of the 'Western
Front' of WWI.
After using byways on Salisbury Plain we will then travel to Portsmouth to embark on the ferry over to France. This 2000mile / 3200km expedition will encompass 6 European countries over a period of 13 days; concluding in Bavaria, Germany. This non-speed touring assembly, with a maximum entry of 45 teams, will be part military history tour (including museums etc), fun activities, part off-road driving and part club-type social, open to road-legal 4x4 vehicles - The whole focus is the raising of funds for the event’s chosen charity, HELP FOR HEROES.
In addition to Normandy, the H4H 4x4 Rally route will visit The Somme, Ypres, the 'Market Garden' and 'Rhine' offensives at Arnhem; where on 17 September 1944, in the largest airborne operation ever seen, thousands of paratroopers descended from the sky by parachute or glider up to 150 km behind enemy lines.
Our route moves south, to Bastogne in Belgium where in the coldest winter for decades, the Germans made a final push – 'The Battle of the Bulge'.
Towards Germany, the rally routing is via the Alsace region of France and its Maginot Line fortifications, then onto Dachau and its horrors of war. We end our journey at Hitler's "impenetrable" Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgaden!
Donating through this page is simple, quick and secure. It is the most efficient way to give – so every donation goes further – and if you are a UK taxpayer and give Gift Aid consent you will boost your donation.
Thank you for your support.
About Help for Heroes
What is H4H all about? It's about the blokes, our men and women of the Armed Forces. It's about Derek, a rugby player who has lost both his legs, it about Carl whose jaw is wired up so he has been drinking through a straw. It's about Richard who was handed a mobile phone as he lay on the stretcher so he could say goodbye to his wife. It's about Ben, it's about Steven and Andy and Mark, it's about them all. They are just blokes but they are our blokes; they are our heroes. We want to help our heroes.
