On Friday 24th October 2014, IDG was proud to be presented with a Help For Heroes ‘Hero Award’ for Outstanding Contribution to the charity.
The award recognised the contribution IDG has made to Help for Heroes, particularly through the annual Sandhurst Business Challenge (SBC), organised by IDG and held at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. Since 2010 SBC participants have helped to raise over £90,000 for Help for Heroes.
IDG’s Jake Meyer and Danny Neil attended the dinner completely unaware that they were there to pick up an award. Jake said: “When I received the invitation I assumed it was a fund-raising dinner for H4H. We had no idea it was the charity’s way of saying thank you to us!” It was a fantastic evening showcasing the amazing breadth of fundraising activities that people from all over the country have done to raise money for H4H.
The award nominations were read out by Emma Parry, the wife of Brynn Parry who started H4H, and the awards themselves were presented by injured service men and women. Jake said: “It was very humbling to have had our small contribution recognised by H4H. This award is recognition for the hard work not only from the IDG team, but also the participants from the various organisations across different industries who took part in the Sandhurst Business Challenge.”
The Help for Heroes Hero Awards recognise those fundraisers who have gone “above and beyond” in supporting the charity. People and organisations are nominated for their outstanding achievements by Help for Heroes and selected by the co-founders, Brynn and Emma Parry.
