MILITARY welfare charity Help for Heroes raised £3,361.31 at a fund-raising challenge in St Helens.

The collection at Asda in St Helens was given a boost by the arrival of Catherine and Lucy Davies, the mother and daugther of soldier Christopher, who was killed fighting in Afghanistan last year.

Roy Rowlands, who co-ordinated the St Helens event, said: “A great effort was made by all volunteers. Asda had planned a BBQ to help raise funds but due to the weather, had to revert to an afternoon tea stall which raised nearly £100.”
