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
