Two Help for Heroes brand partners launch new ranges

Two brand partners for Help for Heroes (H4H) have launched new ranges to assist in raising funds for the charity.

Otter House Card and Gift has launched a H4H stationery range and Christmas card and giftwrap collection for 2017. The stationery range includes notebooks, ceramic mugs, magnets, key rings, pens and a jigsaw. It features the work of illustrator Bryn Parry, who co-founded the charity with his wife Emma.

Carousel Calendars’ 2018 H4H range offers a variety of calendar formats including a slim appointments calendar, an A5 diary and a square wall calendar. Each sports the tri-colour stripes of H4H, as well as Bryn’s illustrations.

Both companies are part of the Otter House Group, which is a long-term supporter of H4H.

Through working in partnership since 2009, Otter House Card and Gift and Carousel Calendars have raised a substantial amount in donations for H4H.

By April 2017 Carousel Calendars had raised £404,753 for H4H since the start of its collaboration. Donations from the Carousel Calendars range from £1 to £2 on every item sold.

For every Otter House Card and Gift product sold, 10% of sales help to support H4H’s work.

Between them, Carousel Calendars and Otter House Card and Gift hope to hit the £500,000 mark by the end of the year.

H4H head of brand partnerships Marcus O’Shea, said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming new Help for Heroes ranges from Otter House Card and Gift and Carousel Calendars.

“After nearly a decade, our close association with the Otter House Group is going from strength to strength, and continuing to offer substantial support for the valuable work that the charity does.”

Otter House Group head of licensing Martin Rees-Davies added: “The Otter House Card and Gift and Carousel Calendars H4H ranges have proved popular with consumers for many years and we believe this year will be no exception. We look forward to continuing our association with H4H and its wonderful work.”

H4H offers support to military service personnel and veterans who have suffered life-changing injuries and illnesses while serving our country.

This support is provided through grants direct to the Heroes and their families, grants to other charities, and through four H4H recovery centres across the UK.

A study conducted last January by H4H and King’s College London found that of the 750,000 men and women who served as Regulars between 1991 and 2014, at least 66,000 need long term support.
