With a range of vehicles to accommodate a variety of loads, Sussex Transport can offer a haulage solution in a ‘Sprinter’ van right through to a 44 ton Artic/Moffett, depending on our customer requirements.
Last week we made a delivery of goods from Selsey in West Sussex to the ‘Help for Heroes’ Charity offices in Tidworth, Wiltshire.
Help for Heroes was co-founded by husband and wife Bryn and Emma Parry, and launched on 1st October 2007. Bryn had served with the Royal Green Jackets for ten years before leaving to become a cartoonist. The couple were profoundly moved after a visit to Selly Oak hospital where they met injured servicemen and women and decided they needed to do something to help. Bryn and Emma Parry were both invested with the OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for their services to charity on25 November 2010.
The Help for Heroes website states:
It’s about the blokes – our men and women of the Armed Forces. Its about Derek, a rugby player who lost both his legs, it’s about Carl whose jaw is wired up so he has been drinking through a straw. It’s about Richard who was handed a mobile phone as he lay on the stretcher so he could say goodbye to his wife. Its about Ben, it’s about Steven and Andy and Mark. It’s about them all. They are just blokes but they are our blokes; they are our heroes. We want to help our heroes.
Members of the Royal Family have been strong supporters of Help for Heroes, with Prince William attending the launch of the new facilities at Headley Courtin 2009.
The Parry’s son, Tom, is an officer with 2nd Battalion the Rifles, who spent a tour in Sangin in Helmand province, southern Afghanistan and their daughters, Sophie and Louisa, have joined in with fund-raising activities , taking part in a family expedition to climb Mount Kilimanjaro shortly after Tom’s return.
