DPT were delighted to agree to make and donate a brand new Elite Freeplay Pool Table to the newly opened "Jimi's Wing" at Tedworth House, the flagship of the 4 UK wide Help for Heroes Recovery Centres which form the Defence Recovery Capability (DRC).
Communications Manager at Tedworth House, Jennifer Packham, expressed her delight following the installation of their new pool table;
"Can I start by saying another very large thank you for your extremely kind donation of the pool table; it really does look fantastic!"
"The pool table itself is situated in the newly opened ‘Jimi’s Wing’ which has 30 bedrooms (all en-suite wet rooms), including 4 family suites, an art room, an IT suite, class rooms and the games rooms.
It’s named in memory of Jimi Heselden OBE. Jimi was Chairman of Hesco Bastion Ltd, the world-leading manufacturer of protective barriers used to protect British and coalition troops around the world. Jimi was a huge supporter of H4H; giving over £3 million to the charity.
Jimi sadly passed away suddenly on the 26th September 2010 and it seemed a fitting tribute to name a wing of Tedworth House after the man they called ‘the heroes’ hero’."
Jennifer Packham, Communications Manager at Tedworth House, 24th October 2012.
