The Remembered Podcast: Help For Heroes
The Remembered Podcast is an opportunity to explore the First World War, and its continuing impact today, in more depth.
Each week, we’ll be chatting to beneficiaries of the There But Not There project, as well as other people who are working to commemorate the war in different ways. The First World War was fought on many fronts and by many different races and we want to give a platform to those different voices, while raising awareness of the There But Not There project.
As always, you can support There But Not There by purchasing one of our Tommies.
This Remembrance Weekend we were delighted to see our Tommies appearing across the nation – from small community installations funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust to projections on iconic landmarks including Edinburgh Castle, the Tate Modern, HMS Belfast and the Angel of the North.
We were also delighted to see our 10″ Tommies appearing in coverage by David Dimbleby and Sophie Raworth.
Help for Heroes is one of our beneficiary charities and today we are speaking with Karen Mead, Head of Psychological Wellbeing and Pippa Wisbey, Corporate Partnerships Account Manager. Help for Heroes does incredible work with veterans, offering both psychiatric and physical support.
Karen tells us more about the work that she does and how veterans are treated today compared to 100 years ago, while Pippa gives us some insight about their plans for their upcoming projects and the continuing importance of military charities.
Thank you to everyone we have spoken to over the last 11 weeks, to everyone who listened and shared the podcast – it really does help us spread the word about what we do.
Again this week, we will be playing out with the new There But Not There single. Composed by Benjamin Hollway, performed by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Owain Arwel Hughes CBE.
You can download the single here and proceeds will come to us, so this is another way you can support our campaign.
