PANASONIC SUPPORTS HELP FOR HEROES
Panasonic has donated televisions and 3D Blu-ray players to Help for Heroes to equip a new games and cinema suite for Servicemen, women, veterans and their families at Chavasse VC House, its Recovery Centre based in Colchester.
The equipment will be used at the new, purpose built Recovery Centre which provides first class facilities for wounded, injured and sick Service personnel including accommodation, social areas, family rooms and a state of the art fitness centre, as well as comprehensive and coordinated on-going support. It was set up to ensure that a comprehensive pathway was established to help the wounded, sick and injured move into the next phase of their lives. They benefit from new skills, qualifications and work experience that guarantees a successful transition either back into the Armed Services or returning to civilian life.
The new games and cinema suite at Colchester has been equipped with five 42" LED 3D Wi-Fi televisions and two Panasonic 3D Blu-ray Players.
The facilities at Chavasse VC House are making a huge difference to the lives of the wounded as they overcome their injuries and make the transition to the next phase of their lives. As well as providing a wide range of holistic support - from adaptive sport to technical skills classes – they provide a relaxing environment where the wounded, injured or sick can relax, make new friends and talk to each other about their experiences.
Sam Burrows, of Panasonic Computer Product Solutions said: “We are honoured to be able to play some small part in assisting the recovery process of our Service men and women and their families and are keen supporters of Help for Heroes and the great work of the Recovery Centre.”
