JCI Barnsley Hidden Heroes 2012!

In 2012 JCI Barnsley's chosen charity is Help for Heroes, supporting the campaign by Matthew Thornton's family to raise funds after he was killed in Helmand.  His family are looking to raise £100,000 and JCI Barnsley want to do their part.    

In 2012 JCI Barnsley want to really get involved in their local community and as such we will be launching our Hidden Heroes Awards 2012!  We are proud to be from Barnsley and we think many others are too, so help us to celebrate the Hidden Heroes in our local community!
