Help for Heroes
Hello and Welcome from Nigel Murray
Big Battlefield Bike Ride 2013
Big Battlefield Bike Ride 2013To all my kind supporters and sponsors We finished! Despite the mileages reported in the press, 294 of us, including 50 wounded, cycled 425 miles from Paris to London over 5 cycling days finishing with a tremendous reception in London yesterday. At Blackheath we were joined by 1300 other cyclists who had cycled from all parts of the country for the biggest cycle ride ever into London. We had a team from The Sun (newspaper) with us and their reports are better than anything I can produce, so here are the links: - An overview of the ride.... http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/campaigns/our_boys/4951441/Roaring-Spitfire-welcome-Help-For-Heroes-bike-riders-back-to-Britain.html - The Finale..... http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4952101/help-for-heroes-big-battlefield-bike-ride-finish-london.html If you have 15 mins to spare (and I encourage you to do this), please have a look at the daily videos of the ride which give you a much better feeling of what we did than words can ever describe. http://www.helpforheroes.org.uk/news/our-latest-news/index.html (and scroll down).
Nigel the Skydiver!Many people have very kindly made a donation to Help for Heroes. My part of the bargain was to jump out of a perfectly serviceable aeroplane. I did this on 1 December - from 15,000 feet and it was the most amazing experience. Thoroughly enjoyable, and once I got over the interesting part of actually departing the plane (looking down it seemed quite high!) it was a great experience - 45 seconds free-fall at 140 miles an hour then about 8 minutes with the parachute. Beautiful view of my house and Salisbury Plain on a lovely (albeit chilly) day. A link to a 5 minute the video of the jump is at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdJdJcoYKts
About Help for Heroes
Help for Heroes offers comprehensive support to those who have suffered life-changing injuries and illnesses whilst serving our country. This is provided through grants to individuals, other Service charities, capital build projects and our four Recovery Centres across the UK, in Catterick, Colchester, Tidworth and Plymouth. These will offer support for life. The money raised by the hugely generous public has been used to support our wounded, but there is still so much more to do. Soldiers, sailors and airmen who are injured today will still need our support tomorrow and in the days that follow, for the rest of their lives. They are still battling and we won't let them battle alone.
