MODELS FOR HEROES UPDATE:

Models for Heroes was setup up in March this year. Thanks to our hard-working trustees and a handful of incredibly motivated volunteers I began to receive models and funding almost immediately. To date, Models for Heroes have been donated over £4,000 in funds and had over 600 kits donated since March 2017. We have sent hundreds of donated kits across the country to three Combat Stress Treatment Offices and four Help for Heroes Recovery Centres. We also provide model kits to be sent in well-being packages to deployed British soldiers around the globe through the charity Support Our Soldiers. We send the easier kits to Scotty’s Little Soldiers, a charity that supports the children of bereaved military families where a parent has been lost in conflict. We run modelling sessions at Tedworth House and Chavasse House Recovery Centres with a modelling course being planned at Phoenix House by a dedicated volunteer. To date we have introduced scale modelling to fifty eight ex service personnel and veterans through our modelling sessions.
