Each volunteer must raise £2,000 for Help for Heroes, the charity set up by fieldsports cartoonist Bryn Parry to raise money for urgently required facilities at the specialist tri-service rehabilitation centre Headley Court. Bryn Parry said: “Though I am now a cartoonist, I was an army officer for 10 years and know the true meaning of the newspaper headline ‘One killed, four wounded, two critically’. Scores of casualties face long periods of recovery and some will have to cope with the consequences of their injuries for the rest of their lives. The very least we can do is make that process as easy as possible.”

Charlotte said: “In August I am to marry Andrew, an officer in the Gurkhas. He deploys on his second tour of Afghanistan a month later with the rest of his battalion. I know several people who have been injured in Iraq and Afghanistan in the past couple of years and I believe those who choose to serve their country should be given access to the best possible facilities to aid their rehabilitation on their return from operations.”

You can sponsor Charlotte by visiting her fundraising page at Just Giving or by sending a cheque made out to Help for Heroes to Shooting Times, Blue Fin Building, 110 Southwark Street, London SE1 0SU.
