London Array’s Help for Heroes

In April, members of the London Array team based in Ramsgate, presented a cheque for £5,000 for Edward Prentice, Kent’s Volunteer Coordinator for Help for Heroes – a charity launched in 2007 to help those who have been wounded in Britain’s current conflicts.

The money raised is part of a total of over £20,000 that has been donated to local charities in Kent from the construction team of the world’s largest offshore wind farm.  Jason Ledden, a member of the London Array team, who served in the Royal Marines until 1990, said; “A number of people working at London Array have served in the armed forces.  The work carried out by Help for Heroes provides direct, practical support to our wounded and we wanted to be able to support the charity as it is close to our hearts.”

Edward Prentice, Help the Heroes Volunteer Coordinator for Kent, said; “Every donation, large or small, makes a difference in some way towards our mission of delivering an enduring network of support for our wounded servicemen and their families. Thanks to London Array for supporting Help for Heroes.”
