30 Mar Lorraine Kelly Backs Bake for Heroes campaign
TV star Lorraine Kelly is calling on Britain to get out the aprons, wooden spoons and mixing bowls to help the annual Bake for Heroes campaign smash the million-pound mark.
Supporters of all ages and all around the UK have cooked up more than £850,000 for Help for Heroes (H4H) since the Bake for Heroes fundraiser began in 2009.
Now, as H4H prepares to mark its 10th anniversary in October, Lorraine says this year is the perfect opportunity to rise to the occasion and make the 2017 event the biggest ever.
All money raised goes to H4H supporting wounded, injured and sick personnel, veterans and their loved ones.
The Bake for Heroes campaign runs between April 15 and April 30, but supporters can take part whenever it suits them.
Lorraine said: “I’m so proud to be a Patron of Help for Heroes. Every time I sit down and talk to our brave men and women, they tell me how much it means to know the public is behind them and their families throughout their recovery.
She added “I’m determined to help make sure that this vital support is there whenever it is needed.”
Funds will support the work of Help for Heroes and their four Recovery Centres, which have been purpose-built and support around 4,000 people every year.
