I'm delighted to be on board with the Cignet team and organiser Ben Hortop for the 2013 Heroes Celebrity Golf day. I played last year for the first time and all I can say is that the weather had better play ball this year! Stoke Park almost drowned last April, and yet so many people made it such a fabulous day I couldn't resist the opportunity to get involved this time around.
Help for Heroes is a charity that by right shouldn't actually be needed. Our troops go into hostile combat zones in OUR name - and yet we don't have the right infrastructure to provide THEM with enough care, or practical help and support when they are either struck ill or suffer life changing injuries. That is what Help for Heroes does, and it's no wonder it's such a huge and really well supported charity. I strongly feel we as a nation have a duty to our brave men and women servicemen who pledged to defend our interests when they entered the forces.
Working on the Paralympics for Channel 4 was an incredible experience. I met more inspirational people then most people do in a lifetime. In a few cases it was the ex-military personnel that really stood out to me. Many of them overcame huge obstacles to take part in the Paralympic Games and I continue to be amazed by their resilience and determination. I hope that when Rio comes around in 2016 - a higher proportion of the Paralympics GB team are there through Battle Back and Help for Heroes. The work they do is incredible.
I hope that you will join us on 24th April 2013. I think it's going to be the best one yet. I am also going to have a word about the weather. I promise...

Last year's Heroes Celebrity Golf Day was a triumph even though I was wet through to my actual pants despite wearing 4 layers.
The Noahesque conditions still couldn't detract from a special day for a wonderful charity

I loved last year's H4H golf day. It was the best round of golf I've ever had (in force 1000 gales in sheet rain with greens 3 inches deep in torrents of water). What was great was that despite the inclement conditions, the day + dinner was brilliantly supported and great fun. This year, the weather will be better. And so will the day. If you're lucky you get to play with someone really famous. If not, I'll wander round the course with you.

It's an honour to support our troops and the H4H Golf day is a 'must' in the calendar. The turnout of celebs is always second to none, making it a great day. This year I'm going to win it!

Help for Heroes do a magnificent and much needed job when so many of our servicemen and women are being constantly asked to put their lives on the line.
It is a privilege to support them.

I'm really looking forward to playing in the Help for Heroes Golf day. Great Location and great cause.
The men and women in the Armed Forces do an incredible job and don't ask for anything in return.
But sometimes they need our help and that's what this charity is all about.

Last year's golf day was perfect for me, as the wind and rain and near 'Waterworld' conditions gave me my ready-made excuse for my indifferent golf game. I'm hoping for more of the same this year.....just kidding. My kit is still drying out!! See you there.

This is my first year playing in the Help for Heroes National Golf Day but I've heard so much about the day and the amazing work the charity does that I wish I'd been involved sooner. It is such an important cause and it is a privilege to be able to honour our service men and women in some small way by taking part.

I can't wait to play again for such a brilliant cause. Although to be honest, the conditions were better suited to synchronised swimming rather than golf. Maybe I'll wear a swimming cap this year!! Come and join us - it's a great great day. X
