Help For Heroes, Headley Court
OK, so the first bit of news worth posting on this new site is that on December 17th 2007, we performed at Headley Court, the armed forces rehabilitation centre near Epsom in Surrey, as part of their Christmas Dinner event for Help For Heroes, which is a group which raises funds for wounded servicemen.
Swimming and weight-training is the only way for injured service men and women to build up damaged muscle and regain the strength to use artificial limbs, so Help For Heroes aims to raise £5million to build a swimming pool and gym complex at Headley Court.
The group is supported by a number of celebrities, and is also heavily backed by publications like The Sun. James May from Top Gear is one such celebrity who, as you can see, was over the moon to bump into us. He actually said we were his favourite band!*
