Help for Heroes
Hello and Welcome from Jon Henderson
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page.My challenge, in my 60th year, is to solo walk all 268 miles of the Pennine Way, which is the most arduous long distance walk in the UK. The Pennine Way stretches from the Derbyshire Peak District to the Scottish Borders and crosses some of the most desolate and wettest parts of the UK, with a total ascent greater than Mount Everest. This is not only a personal challenge but is also a way to enable me to contribute to Help for Heroes, a charity that does amazing work that thankfully I didn't require after 25 years in the Army but many now do. I will be starting the walk at Edale on 1 June 2012 and aim to complete it and arrive in Kirk Yetholm on 15 June 2012, a total of 15 days and some 2 to 3 days quicker than most guidebooks recommend. In doing so, I'm hoping to raise at least £5000 so any contribution you make will not only be extremely welcome by our servicemen and women but will also help spur me on to the finish!
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 the charity will receive an extra 28% at no cost to you.
Thank you for your support.
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.
