In June 2011, United Press launched the Charity Aid Project, raising over £85,000 in one year! The success of this new venture took our fundraising total to £300,000 in the last ten years. You can find out more about Charity Aid here.

Help For Heroes was founded in October 2007 out of a desire to help the wounded Servicemen and women returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. After many requests, we launched a charity poetry competition in aid of Help For Heroes. Click here for more information about the competition for H4H.
