Shoppers in Lichfield are being invited to support Help for Heroes.

The Armed Forces charity – which has supported almost 300 veterans in Staffordshire over the past 15 years – will benefit from a national collection weekend at Tesco stores on 25th and 26th June.

Trevor Fudger, from Help for Heroes, said the need to support former servicemen and women was greater than ever.

“Covid and its consequences – such as the lockdowns which caused added psychological issues for some of our veterans and the cancellation of our fundraising activities – created something of a perfect storm of increased demand on our support services and less capital with which to fund them.

“We are hoping that the wonderful British public, which is always so supportive of its veterans, will once again dig deep to help fill our collection buckets at Tesco stores across the country. And we’d like to thank them in advance for any support they can give.”

Volunteers and supporters of the charity will be joined by veterans to chat to shoppers about how Help for Heroes support people in the community.
