Veteran's Gateway list Models for Heroes

The Veteran's Gateway is a online service providing armed forces personnel signposting to organisations, charities and services.  Services from housing, employment to well being and sport can be found here. 

Models for Heroes are listed as one of their information organisations and we hope to receive referrals from other charities and from inividuals by being listed on VG.  Were very proud to have been given the opportunity to appear on their list and will work hard to provide the best charitable service possible.

Models for Heroes sign the Covenant

On the 10th of August 2018 the Models for Heroes committee attended Middle Wallop as guests of the Army Aviation Centre.  There we signed the Armed Forces Covenant along with Lt. Col. Alan Birkett.  We are very proud to have signed the covenant and to have officially pledged our alignment with the Armed Forces community. 

Thanks to the Defence Relationship Management team of the Ministry of Defence for organising the pledge and the event.

Gallantry Art selling Models for Heroes

The online art gallery Gallantry Art have partnered with us to sell some of the amazing detailed models that our talented veterans have made.  These scale models have a very real, very raw human story of bravery, pain or elation behind them.    A percentage of the sale goes to Combat Stress as well as ourselves to raise funds.

Models for Heroes and Breaking Ground Heritage join forces

Breaking Ground Heritage, based in Taunton, Somerset came to Tedworth House to create a day for their beneficiaries building model tanks of their upcoming project.   To uncover a Mkii tank from WW1.

Beneficiaries were invited to build a Masterbox model kit that fully replicates the details in every way and to enjoy the thrill and relaxation of model making.  The day was a success with 100% positive Feedback.,  everyone got to take their tanks home with them as a momento of the day.

Some tanks were painted brown as per the kit instructions, some were painted the British Racing green colour that its suspected they were originally painted in during WWI.    The day ended with the CEO of BGH vowing to start some modelling making back at HQ in the future as everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the results clearly lifted everyones mood.
