St James’s Palace:
“As a serving soldier and officer with friends and colleagues in Afghanistan Prince Harry is a strong supporter of Help for Heroes and the work the charity does in aid of wounded service personnel and their families. He was very interested to hear about the Destination Dubai 2012 challenge, and sends his best wishes to the team for a successful expedition. The Prince is pleased that so many people, including The Sun, are backing the important cause. The work of caring for our wounded heroes has only just begun.”
Prime Minister David Cameron:
“Please accept my, and Samantha’s best wishes for your journey. We are confident that the Serviceman’s spirit, determination and resolve will make it a resounding success and raise a significant amount of money for such a worthwhile cause. Have a great adventure: I admire your courage and enterprise.”
“British actress and campaigner Joanna Lumley sends her warmest congratulations and good luck wishes to the biker soldiers and wishes them a safe and thrilling journey”.
Admiral Lord Alan West:
“I am a wholehearted supporter Geoff, Colin and Chris’s challenge which is a TRIUMPH of planning and adventure to help our wounded heroes.”
Help for Heroes President, General Lord (Richard) Dannatt:
“It is thanks to the spirit, determination, and sheer hard work of people like the Destination Dubai 2012 team that Help for Heroes is able to support our wounded service personnel and their families. Without the willingness of people to give their time and energy to raise funds and the generosity of the great British public in supporting them the charity could not do such fantastic work. I wish the team every success, and will be following their progress as they plan, prepare and embark on their journey.”
“Just to say I’m following your progress. Well done and keep up the good work!
Bryn Parry OBE, CEO and Co-Founder Help for Heroes:
“H4H is all about ‘doing your bit’ and Destination Dubai 2012 is a wonderful example of people having a good idea, rallying support and having a great deal of fun while they raise money for a wonderful cause. We have been able to use the £millions raised, over £129m in just four years, to provide practical and direct support to those wounded in the current conflicts. The money you raise is needed, it is being used and it is hugely appreciated.”
