The appeal launches on Saturday 1 March with a fundraising weekend in store. The appeal will last throughout March and Debenhams is aiming to raise a minimum of £75,000 nationally.

The retailer will also be supporting Help for Heroes with a range of limited edition merchandise.

Jamie says: “These are great casual T-shirts, offering Debenhams' customers the chance to show a symbol of their support for our wounded. There are several lively and comfortable designs, giving you the option to wear something a little different and raise awareness for Help for Heroes.”

Sarah Kellett, store manager of Debenhams Barrow, says: “We’re delighted to be supporting Help for Heroes. We’ll kick off the initiative with a fundraising weekend in store on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd March with the support of local Help for Heroes volunteers who will be selling merchandise and collecting donations.”

Help for Heroes’ mission is to deliver a lasting national network of support for wounded servicemen and their families. The charity inspires and enables those who have made sacrifices on the countries behalf to achieve their full potential.

Bryn Parry, CEO & Co-Founder of Help for Heroes said: “Help for Heroes is hugely grateful to Debenhams for the amazing support it is giving us. What really makes the contribution stand out is the range of support provided; from allowing us to run a national collection weekend at stores, to developing a range of clothing in partnership with H4H. Servicemen and women who are injured today will still need our support tomorrow and in the days that follow, for the rest of their lives. They are still battling and we won't let them battle alone."

Have your say

H4H only support from Veterans from 2001, need to support Royal British Legion who support all Veterans no matter who they are.
