Us with our bikes

We have been extremely fortunate to have our own publicity agent - Judy Totton - who approached us in May 2011 after reading about our efforts and asked if she could help. She has been extraordinary and the following television reports, radio interviews and newspaper stories have all come about as a result of her hard work. She is also a wonderful photographer and the publicity shots on this page and all of the photographs from the St. Paul's Cathedral concert were all taken by her.


This news story appeared on ITV's London Tonight on the day of the concert



Radio Interviews

Tom had a live studio interview with the wonderful Jumoke Fashola on her Sunday morning show, Inspirit, on BBC London on the 26th June 2011. This took place at BBC Broadcasting House in Portland Place and we managed to record this. Click on the button below to hear the interview.



Tom also had a studio interview with the British Forces Broadcasting Service in Amersham; we are trying to obtain a recording of this. He also had several telephone interviews on live radio for a number of other radio stations.

Radio plays of anthem

The anthem has been played a number of times on the radio. Alan Titchmarsh played it on his Radio 2 weekend show on the 7th August. Aled Jones played it on his Good Morning Sunday show, also on Radio 2, on September 4th 2011 to commemorate the 345 soldiers who have been repatriated through Wootton Bassett.

We were tweeted by Stephen Fry on 24th June 2011! This caused massive excitement. We had been told a few days in advance that this might be happening and had, in preparation, arranged for the website to be upgraded so that it did not crash when the thousands of Stephen Fry followers descended on our site. The Tweet was followed by a massive surge in hits (by about 50,000!) but, we regret to say, the total donated to Help for Heroes via our JustGiving site following this amounted to £12.00!! Oh well, it was worth it just to be able to say that we have been tweeted by Stephen Fry.
