Help for Heroes, the charity set up to aid injured servicemen and women have told the EDL leader Stephen Lennon that they don't want any money from him.
Lennon aka Tommy Robinson planned to have a sponsored walk across the city of London on June 29th and donate the money to the charity.

However, the much loved charity has refused to accept any money from the thuggish leader who has previous convictions for assaulting an ex soldier and an off duty police officer.

A spokesman from Help For Heroes stated that they do not wish to be used for political purposes.

Especially from groups who will use the fact that they have made a donation for their own agenda!!

Good that Help for Heroes looks at whose hand they are taking charity from. And the EDL certainly wanted to do this walk as more hate propaganda against Muslims. Help for Heroes should be praised for not becoming a pawn in the EDL's hate campaign. :bravo:
