Even though the idea for Heroes Day was born at a Primary School, there is no reason why businesses and organisations, in both the public and private sectors cannot take part. After all Goodman Masson, the UK's largest financial recruitment company broke the world record for the number of people dressed as Superman to raise funds for Help for Heroes.
Businesses and organisations are therefore asked to sign up here and their details will be published on the following pages:
Please bear with us while some early e-mail registrations are regenerated on the updated website - a few may be delayed in appearing.
Some organisations may not want or be able to let staff dress as their Hero for the day. We suggest that a dress down day works, perhaps selling Help for Heroes silicone bracelets. It may also be appropriate to run some "internal" fundraising events. For example if someone's "Hero" was:
- Sir Steve Redgrave, perhaps they could "row the channel/round Britain" on a rowing machine
- Sir Chris Hoy, then perhaps a Lands End to John O'Groats Cycle relay on a gym bike
- A footballer might suggest a 24 hour 5-a-side football match (rolling subs suggested!)
- Heston Blumenthal, perhaps they could make and sell "strawberry and bacon madras muffins" (or similar)
- Aggie Mackenzie might suggest a sponsored ironing event
- Stella McCartney could lead to a sponsored fashion show
So businesses and the public sector can participate, perhaps in a slightly different way perhaps, if they are brave enough.
