Club Meeting – Help for Heroes

The remarkable charity, ‘Help for Heroes’ has captured the imagination and support of the nation. Our speaker this evening was Jerry Hobbs, who is the local organiser for the charity and is also a member of Wolverhampton Rotary Club.

We were delighted to welcome Jerry back again to bring us up to date with developments within ‘Help for Heroes’ and to learn of the further progress being made. Jerry’s boundless enthusiasm and commitment is never in doubt and all the Club members present were again amazed at the tremendous progress and the many achievements which the charity has made in a relatively short space of time.

Seeing the new facilities now brought on stream at Headley Court – the charity’s main rehabilitation centre – and the setting up of additional rehabilitation facilities throughout the UK was quite inspiring, but nothing matched the amazing fortitude, resilience and sheer courage of the young servicemen undergoing treatment – each fighting a personal battle to resume life back in the community – many with the most appalling injuries, yet unfailingly cheerful and confident in their ability to forge new lives for themselves. All quite humbling!
