This is now the UK's biggest Help For Heroes Charity match.

Plenty of time to sort your diaries out for this one.

The majority of information for this match is updated regularly on the Facebook page Hooked For Heroes, also keep an eye out for press releases, the match has already been advertised on Total Fishing on line and Match Fishing Magazine on line and will also hit the weekly/Monthly magazines. I'll also update on here.
This is not just for seasoned match anglers, everyone is welcome, here's how extreme it can be, at the last match we had a nine year old girl that pegged next to Marc Rodger. This is probably the only match in the UK where that could happen! Top anglers are already booking in for this match, already we have; Marc Rodger, Dave Swain, Matty Pillay, Shane Atkin, Nick Speed, Zac Brown and many more to come.

We can accommodate up to 300 anglers on the day (I told you it was big).

Here's the run down.
Saturday August the 2nd 2014.
6 hour match.
300 pegs.
25.00 all in (plenty of pay outs)
Draw at 9am
Optional Raffle(masses of prizes including 1 to 1 coaching days with top anglers)
10.00 per person deposit payable through Paypal, email address to input is Hooked4heroes@mail.com leave the names of anglers booking in on the message section and please click the friends and family button so Paypal don't charge us.


Cheers all.

Nothing against anyone doing something for charity, but maybe a little thought into which charity you give time/money to.
Help for Heroes has more than enough cash in the bank. If they gave more of it out then could see the need for events like this but .......

I've also given more than a little thought to which charity I support.
I wouldn't dream of commenting on a thread for a charity match, whatever the charity and post a negative comment.

Its still 6.86m more than theyd be getting without help for heroes
if you dont agree then thats fair enough but why do you need to blanket criticise a charity in any case [?]
Choice is either go fishing as you normally would or a great days fishing and injured soldiers get some benefit from it... whats not to like [:T]

Cheers Kev.

I don't want to get into a debate. people will either support or not. Everyone has a choice but I certainly wouldn't bad mouth a charity just because it's not the one I choose to support.

The figures you are quoting is just the cash mount given directly to injured soldiers.
If you did a little more research you'd find that H4H also gives to other charities including;

Battle Back (1.7M)
Blind Veterans UK (1m)
Not Forgotten Association(160k)
The Poppy Factory (636k)
and many more.
Yes, The Poppy Factory, perhaps that's part of the reason they can pay out more than they receive?

Help for Heroes runs four Recovery Centres across the country which form part of the Defence Recovery Capability - a partnership between Help for Heroes, The Ministry of Defence and The Royal British Legion.
(Oooh, look, In conjunction with the British Legion.)
The Recovery Centres are there to inspire, enable and support our wounded, injured and sick, and their families, for the rest of their lives.

The Centres provide a launchpad-to-life where the wounded and their families can access psychological, financial and employment support, all in one place.

Headley Court alone cost 8.5 million to build.
H4H is committed to providing immediate, direct support to individuals as well as building long-term support for the future. Money has either been spent or allocated as follows:

50m on Individual Support: H4H has provided immediate support to 2000 individuals through the Quick Reaction Fund, a 6m pot of money able to provide swift financial assistance and administered through the Services own charities. We are funding the running costs of the H4H Recovery Centres which support hundreds of individuals weekly, and also make grants to other specialist charities to support their vital specialist work e.g. Haig Housing Trust, SkillForce, Horseback UK, Winstons Wish and Canine Partners.

75m on capital projects: H4H has committed 60m to develop and equip four Recovery Centres in the UK for serving personnel, veterans and their families. the 8.5m rehabilitation complex at Headley Court and projects for other charities including Combat Stress, Fisher House, Blind Veterans and SSAFA Forces Help Norton Homes.

65m still needed for long term support: H4H has committed to funding the delivery of services within the Recovery Centres for the next 20 years including mental and physical well-being, adaptive sport facilities, Battle Back programmes, education, training and support services. It is vital we raise these funds to ensure a lifetime of support for those suffering from life-changing injuries and illnesses.

Our shopping list of projects is continually evolving as we learn from the wounded about the support they need in the long-term.
