Hosties 4 Heroes was founded and created in 2011 by Sophy Mahon to support our armed forces and fundraise for Help for Heroes. The concept of 'Shaking up a cocktail of mud and glamour' sees teams of airline cabin crew predominantly facing a series of tough, muddy and action packed fundraising challenges in all their glamour to raise money for the charity!
So welcome on board... we need your help to gain publicity promoting these events, therefore raising as much money as possible. Help for Heroes was launched in October 2007, it provides direct, practical support to wounded, sick or injured service personnel since 9/11, and it’s constantly ongoing demands, with the other many conflicts around the world, needs and deserves our wholehearted support!...
Let’s raise awareness of Hosties 4 Heroes helping the heroes! They have been brave for us, so now it’s our turn to be brave for them!!
'Toughness is in the soul and spirit....not in muscles!'
The Hosties have also formed a great and very relevant relationship with Flying for Freedom, in partnership with Help for Heroes.
Flying for Freedom are mounting a daring expedition to be undertaken by eight wounded and injured servicemen designed to bring to the attention of Britain and British Business the urgent need to build self-sustaining activities that get our veterans back into work and daily life.
The Expedition, in partnership with Help for Heroes will show their ability not their disability as they each fly by microlight to the South Pole.

To assist these guys in their funding on getting to the South Pole whilst still donating to Help for Heroes, The Hosties have a 2014 calendar in working progress......watch this space!
HELP FOR HEROES
Help for Heroes supports veterans and serving personnel who have been wounded, injured, or become sick, as a result of serving our country. The charity provides immediate, direct support to individuals as well as building long-term support for the future. Additionally, their families and dependents receive support from the charity as they care for their loved one, and adapt to the new challenges that they face.
To date, Help for Heroes has spent or allocated over £50m for individual support, including direct grants to over 2,500 individuals through the Quick Reaction Fund which are administered by the Service’s own charities.
