We know that some of you will have your own personal reasons to fundraise for other charities and you will all have our full support - but if you're wondering who to raise money for we'd encourage you to consider H4H.

So, what is Help for Heroes all about and why are we supporting them?

Help for Heroes was established in 2007 to support servicemen and women who had become wounded, injured, or sick since the Afghanistan conflict began in 2001. Since 2012, Help for Heroes' support has been extended to all personnel and veterans. Many families across North Wales and the wider UK have been touched by the consequences of more than a decade of war in the Middle East and previous conflicts, and we wanted to give something back to the people who have in many cases given too much of themselves.

In H4H’s own words ... "It's about the blokes, our men and women of the Armed Forces. It's about Derek, a rugby player who has lost both legs, it's about Carl whose jaw has been 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."


Every competitor who raises money for H4H through Betws-y-Coed Trail Challenge will be given a H4H wristband.
