MBE AWARD FOR FOUNDER TOM WOOD NEW YEARS HONOURS LIST 2021

PRESS RELEASE
NEW YEARS HONOURS LIST 2021- AN MBE FOR MR TOM WOOD FOR SERVICES TO HOMELESS VETERANS
On behalf of The Trustees, Volunteers, myself but most of all the 600 veterans including some partners and children who have received assistance through the charity created by Tom Wood and his wife Jean ten years ago, it gives me great pleasure to announce Tom Wood has been awarded the MBE national honour for the work he has done through our charity HELP 4 HOMELESS VETERANS since he created it in 2010.
We believe no Veteran of HM Armed Forces should be homeless. We provide advice, financial and practical support to veterans facing homelessness throughout England and Wales enabling them to rebuild their lives.
This honour represents the pinnacle of all the awards we at our charity have received for our work, it is fitting that the man who started it all should be recognized in this way and I hope it will encourage many other veterans to step forward to assist other former members of HM Armed Forces facing serious difficulties in their lives as the work goes on unabated.
