“We are delighted to announce our digital fundraising charity campaign that will raise funds to support the veterans and their families through the amazing work Help for Heroes does on a daily basis”, explains Rajeev Girdhar, WoWS Regional Publishing Director. ”In these times of uncertainty, we believe it’s important not to lose sight of those who dedicated their lives to protect others. Veterans are a vital part of the Warships family, and we want to give our players the opportunity to honour and support those brave men and women.
- “Gaming can be an incredible part of the recovery journey for some of our veterans as we have seen this year through our work with the Hero Up campaign” says Andy Johnson-Creek, Head of PR at Help for Heroes. “ We are incredibly humbled by Wargaming’s fundraising through World of Warships. At this time of Remembrance when our veterans cannot be together in person, we know playing online as a team can bring great comfort and support.”
