Afgan Heroes Mothers Day Motorcycle Ride

March 14th 2010

Afghan Heroes has been launched by a group of mothers with the aim of helping our service personnel directly on the front line; the families of those who have fallen and our returning service personnel who have witnessed these horrific losses of their fellow comrades.

Afghan Heroes is independent of other charities. It deals specifically with members of the British forces and their families that have been affected by the military operations in Afghanistan now and into the future.
The intention... (read more)
To support all our service personnel operating in theatre in Afghanistan, by providing the much needed "home comfort" supplies and gifts to the 9,000 service personnel, to promote and embrace the new initiative "Thank A Soldier" and to ensure our soldiers know they are not alone. On the home front we will set up support groups for the families of the fallen. We will also set up regional network groups and events so families can come together and support each other.
