MEMBERS of the Rally for Heroes team raised £485.53 for an Armed Forces charity at supermarkets in Wiltshire last weekend.

They shook buckets outside two stores, Asda in Melksham, and Tesco in Marlborough.

They raised £291.16 for SSAFA after standing outside the store in Melksham on Saturday with two cars, a Mercedes SLK and BMW Z4.

Then on Sunday, the team did the same again at Tesco Marlborough and raised another £194.37, with another BMW Z4 on display.

Rally for Heroes is a driving challenge that takes place over 10 days, visiting 10 countries and covering over 3000 miles to honour the fallen.

In 2018, the event involved 112 people in 60 cars and together they raised a record £145,500 for SSAFA.

In 2020 the Rally for Heroes team will be repeating the event again and their target is £100,000.

SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, has been providing lifelong support to the forces and their families since 1885.
