In commemoration of the 70th Anniversary of the end of World War 2, the final Help for Heroes 4×4 European Rally has started from Littlecote House Hotel in North Wiltshire.
This will be the ‘Final Mission’ for the Help for Heroes 4×4 European Rally, and the objective for this year’s event will be to raise £1,000,000 for Help for Heroes. The event will follow the path and tell the story of the Allied Invasion through Europe, following the Allied Forces landings in France early on D-Day morning, 6th June 1944.
As with previous years, Hero the Bear will be accompanying Team Techytubbies, who this year have two entrants:
- Team 22 TechyTubbies WsM
Peter Harrison and co-driver Nichol Cross, with navigators Rhu and Ami
- Team 24 TechyTubbies Martock
Ed Edwards with co-drivers Vicki Edwards and Ryan Peacock

As you know, Hero the bear is providing moral support and assistance to the @TechyTubbies Team participating in the Help for Heroes 4X4 Rally. They stayed overnight at Arnhem, close to where the 1st British Airborne Division dropped for Operation Market Garden on 17 September 1944.
Operation Market Garden was launched to shorten the war and save lives but was ultimately unsuccessful. Part of the story is immortalized in the 1977 film directed by Richard Attenborough, A Bridge Too Far
