Help for Heroes tackles Scotland rugby fans

For the first time ever, Help for Heroes is being given the opportunity to fundraise at the home of Scottish Rugby.

On Saturday November 17, the Armed Forces Charity EMC Test is taking place at Murrayfield on the day Scotland take on World Cup champions South Africa in their second Autumn international match.

Help for Heroes will be one of four military charities to be present on the day. Serving soldiers will be bucket-collecting at the turnstiles and a merchandise truck will be there to allow ticket holders to pick up Help for Heroes products. Scotland captain Kelly Brown said: “The match against South Africa is going to be a big day for rugby fans and I am certain the addition of Armed Forces personnel will add to the special atmosphere of an international match day at Murrayfield.
