Brummie Bull – Community Trust Project Launched

The Helping Hand Community Trust were delighted to launch Brummie Bull on Friday 25th October in partnership with Andrew Wood – Herefordshire Community Recycling Raising Money for Local Charities, Lynne Stokes and the Eco Club from St Mary’s Primary School.

Brummie was proudly made by Helping Hand Rotherwas colleagues – Mark Bishop, John Anderson and Gareth Hughes as our sponsored Community Trust October project.

  • Brummie is very special he is built to collect funds for the Hereford Royal British Legion and Hereford SAS branch.
  • The name Brummie was chosen to honour Herefordshire SAS legend and 22 regiment member – Brummie Stokes.
  • School children across Herefordshire will make recycled poppies (from the end of plastic bottles and old uniforms) to pin onto Brummie as part of his official campaign tour.
  • The Helping Hand Company want to encourage as many as possible of all ages to make poppies – to thank those who gave so much for us to have what we have today and generations forward.
