- On 4 March 2014, I reported that Prize Promotions Limited, the official professional fundraiser for Afghan Heroes, was raising funds for another “heroes” military charity – Our Local Heroes Foundation. (https://dralexmay.wordpress.com/2014/03/04/prize-promotions-raising-funds-for-another-heroes-military-charity/)
- In that post, I gave the link for the 17 February 2014 announcement by Our Local Heroes Foundation that Prize Promotions Limited was holding a “prize draw” on its behalf. (http://www.ourlocalheroes.org.uk/2014/thank-you/) That link is no longer functional: following it results in automatic redirection to the charity homepage.
- The announcement of the “prize draw” by Prize Promotions Limited is now dated as 5 March 2014 on the Our Local Heroes Foundation website. (http://www.ourlocalheroes.org.uk/prize-draw/)
- But there is no mention of Prize Promotions Limited in the “prize draw” results that the charity published 27 March 2014. (http://www.ourlocalheroes.org.uk/prize-draw-results/) It seems that comedian Bobby Ball didn’t perform the draw for Prize Promotions Limited this time. (https://dralexmay.wordpress.com/2014/01/06/the-fundraiser-the-comedian-and-the-ex-cabinet-minister-the-tale-of-a-military-charity/) Further, Tony Chadwick, director of Prize Promotions Limited, doesn’t appear in the photo of the winning tickets either. Hitherto he has: for example, see this Facebook page from Afghan Heroes dated 28 September 2012 announcing the Prize Promotions “raffle” winners: http://sdrv.ms/19k5bAp. Is Our Local Heroes Foundation now trying to hide the role of Prize Promotions Limited?
- My 4 March 2014 post also documented how Prize Promotions Limited was listed as a “corporate sponsor” of Our Local Heroes Foundation. (http://www.ourlocalheroes.org.uk/sponsors/) Now the charity has removed the company from its sponsors page, too.
- On 8 March 2014, I received an interesting account of a customer experience of Prize Promotions Limited raising funds for Our Local Heroes Foundation. (https://dralexmay.wordpress.com/2014/03/08/prize-promotions-another-customer-experience/) It corroborated my experience of Prize Promotions Limited raising funds for Afghan Heroes. (https://dralexmay.wordpress.com/2014/01/06/the-fundraiser-the-comedian-and-the-ex-cabinet-minister-the-tale-of-a-military-charity/)
