Charity Help for Heroes (H4H) is asking East Dunbartonshire residents to turn their BBQ’s into an opportunity to fundraise for wounded, and sick service personnel, veterans and their families.

The ‘BBQ for Heroes’ campaign takes place during August 15-31 and you can register and find out more by visiting www.bbqforheroes.org.uk or calling 01980 846459.

Whether you invite friends over for a BBQ in your garden in exchange for a donation, or arrange a bigger community event, it all makes a difference to the support H4H can provide.

A free fundraising pack will be sent to every BBQ for Heroes event organiser. The packs include H4H wristbands, lapel pins, collecting boxes, bunting, balloons and a banner.

Help for Heroes co-founder Emma Parry said: “H4H is all about ‘doing your bit’ and this event is a wonderful example of people rallying support and having a great deal of fun while they raise money.”
