Josh's Climb For Heroes

An intrepid former Royal Anglian, Josh Butcher, will be setting off next month to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds for Help for Heroes.

Josh served in Op Telic 8 and knows full well the terrible injuries some of his comrades suffered in Iraq and how the work of Help for Heroes has helped their recovery.

As he says: "Having served in the Army in operational environments, I am in a privileged position that I have come back safe and well. Some are not so lucky, including some of my friends. They have suffered horrific injuries and that ultimately affected their futures. Help for Heroes is a charity that aims to help and support our wounded troops and their families. They believe, as I do "that anyone who volunteers to serve in time of war, knowing that they may risk all, is a hero".

Help Josh reach his target of £4,000 by making a donation at:

All the best, Josh!
