Cheltenham-based Susie Godwin calls for our community to do your bit for our heroes

ASDA have generously allowed Help for Heroes to run collection days outside 320 ASDA stores nationwide on Saturday, May 12 and Sunday, May 13, and local woman, Susie Godwin from Cheltenham, has volunteered to be a Store Point of Contact for both Gloucester and Cheltenham ASDA stores.

Susie would love our communitys support in making this an event to remember and is asking for big red H4H bucket collectors to volunteer to join her outside the Gloucester or Cheltenham ASDA store to help raise as much as possible, to support our wounded heroes. Volunteers would need to be available for three hours, either 101pm or 14pm on the 12th or 13th, or both

Susie says, Two years ago, I joined Help for Heroes as a volunteer Coordinator in Gloucestershire, and it is wonderful and amazing how generous the Great British public are in support of this great charity. One hundred per cent of money donated goes straight to support our injured troops, so please do register on to help us achieve a fantastic total.

Help for Heroes was founded by Bryn and Emma Parry in October 2007 out of a desire to help the wounded Servicemen and women returning from Afghanistan and Iraq and provides direct, practical support to those injured since 9/11.

One lady, Sarah, has already kindly offered her time for the entire weekend at the Cheltenham store. I haven't been involved in anything like this before but have always wanted to and this is the perfect opportunity! Ive supported Help for Heroes whenever I can and am ex-forces myself so it is a charity very close to my heart. Look forward raising LOTS of money for a very worthy cause - see you then!

Please contact Susie on or call her on 07966 449998 for further information on how you can do your bit to help, or visit the Official Help for Heroes website at
