April 2012 - 31st August 2012 I raised www.bmycharity/teamscottishbairns £10,770 +£2,049 Merchandise

I'm a selfemployed, single mum. On April 10th 2012 after seeing a photograph of two young servicemen in wheelchairs, a result of losing limbs in the Afghanistan Conflict, who were being supported by 'Help for Heroes' charity. Three of my sons are very close to their age I felt very affected by this. Despite their horrific injuries the young men were smiling and happy. This made me feel inspired by the work the charity does and I decided that day I was going to strive to raise money for them. The photograph was displayed on the side of a Help for Heroes 4x4 European Rally Competitors Land Rover. Although I'd never taken part in a Rally, fund raised, camped, driven abroad or off road, this is exactly what I did. I set up 'Team Scottish Bairns' on 12th April 2012

'Team Scottish Bairns' was the only team leaving from Scotland who took part in the H4H 4X4 Euro Rally which covered over 4,000 miles 8 countries in 16 days included France, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, Austria and Concluded in Bertchesgarten, Germany.

As I am totally self funded and nothing comes out of the donations it is becoming increasingly harder to fund everything. My time is easy as that costs nothing but the servicing and preparation costs of the vehicle and fuel travel expenses soon rack up I was looking for companies to help with funding. I was lucky enough to win £20,000 in an internet prize draw which cleared 2 days before the event allowing me to spend: £3,600+ during the rally on fuel expenses etc, more than that amount attending events, buying official Help for Heroes merchandise: Clothing, banners flags, bunting, printing and other items required for branding, £1,250 towards this Junes entry fee, The Vehicle repairs (The Land Rover has just Had extensive repairs. gearbox etc, day to day running costs as a volunteer and getting to, publicising events which I been to fund raise Have all taken care of my wind fall. Bank Account proof of expenses incurred are available, as well as all collection dates and places are easily accessible on my and when clicking on view all donations

In the last 16 months I, as Scottish Bairns, raised £45,556 for H4H (£29, 000+ donations and sold £16,115.50 official H4H merchandise) As well as prominent places for fund raising The vehicle(AKA Mucky) is also used for school and other presentations, Any company would be able to have space on Mucky to advertise and would also be promoted whenever possible throughout the rally & at fundraising events.

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.
