Louise looking for buckets of cash to support Help for Heroes

A STRATHBLANE mum who has three sons in the armed forces is going to collect cash for the soldiers’ charity Help For Heroes at Asda, Bearsden, on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 7pm.

Louise Bennet already does her bit for troops on the front line as she sends them her homemade cakes.

She named them ‘buns of mass production’ and has posted 31,000 to various locations since she began the project in 2003 - she now produces 300 per week.

Her eldest son George is an interpreter in Afghanistan after learning to speak Dari and before that he was a captain with 42 Commando Royal Marines, Matthew is a second lieutenant with the Royal Marines and Simon is a junior doctor who plans to join the Territorial Army.

Help for Heroes was founded by Bryn and Emma Parry in October 2007 to help the wounded servicemen and women returning from Afghanistan and Iraq and provides direct, practical support to those injured since 9/11.

Louise raised £2,204.99 at her colossal cake sale in Tesco, Milngavie, at the end of last month.
