Afghan Heroes - We're more than the name suggests...
Londons Air Studios played host to an emotional rollercoaster on November 17th. Over a hundred people pitched in to help with the recording of the new song, Steal the Sun, written for Afghan Heroes. We hope for the song to be remembered by millions as a work of genius for soldiers who need our support. Some promotional video footage has been prepared to show some of the behind the scenes footage of the day. Keep watching our Website, Facebook, Twitter and newly operational YouTube Channel for more updates on these emotional recordings and please encourage as many people as possible to purchase the song as it is finally released. Steal the Sun available now. Thanks to everyone for showing their support.

Legal help for Heroes
As you may be aware Afghan Heroes has its first holiday home located at Weymouth Bay in Dorset. The purpose of the home is to provide quality time for families of the fallen and our wounded heroes. The initiative is subsidised by the general public holidaying at peak times at a fifty percent reduction of the main Haven tariff. 2012 Weymouth Bay hosts the sailing events for the Olympic and Para-Olympic games, therefore accommodation will be at a premium. Afghan Heroes will consider letting the home in these premium weeks to the General Public, in the first instance please email email@example.com indicating which weeks you would be interested in together with your suggested charity donation.

The Corporal Lee Scott
The Corporal Lee Scott was created by Paul Ferguson and Martin Turner in recognition of the formation of Afghan Heroes. A Harley Davidson MT-350, which has seen active service, was procured as the donor bike, and the vision was born.
Simply the Cpl. Lee Scott is a motorcycle memorial to all the fallen soldiers in Afghanistan from the commencement of hostilities in 2001 up until the present day. Symbolically the build of the Cpl. Lee Scott was finished on the 11th November 2011. Tragically however, the Cpl. Lee Scott will never be completed until British Forces are removed from the hostile territory of Afghanistan.
We would like to thank Gari Glaysher for recording 'Bring Him Home' on behalf of Afghan Heroes. Also we would like to thank Gari and Keith for kindly donating their time at events which have raised funds for the charity.
Prince salutes the Band Of Mothers
The mothers of the Afghan Heroes campaign were honoured with a Special Recognition awards at the 2009 'The Sun Military Awards' (aka The Millies) ceremony at the Imperial War Museum in London.
The award was presented to the group by Prince Harry who called them "quite remarkable ladies" adding: "Your story is truly humbling. To show such immense courage in the face of tragedy is beyond words." Read More...
