MKC Heroes Plymouth

MKC Heroes (Formally HMS Heroes) is a national support group for the children of Service men and women and their relatives. A tri-Service network of after-school clubs, MKC Heroes brings together members of Service families aged between three and 18 years old from all over the country.

Members of MKC Heroes Plymouth took over Plymouth Council Chamber last Friday as they led a question and answer session with several important people.

MKC Ambassadors, Rebecca; Rebekah and Rebecca, led the session with their local politicians.


Members of Parliament for Plymouth: Gary Streeter; Oliver Colvile and Johnny Mercer came along and were supported by local councillors, Terri Beer and Glenn Jordan. The Lord Mayor of Plymouth, Councillor Pauline Murphy and her consort, Councillor Brian Vincent, both great supporters of MKC Heroes, were there to oversee the event.

The afternoon began with a presentation to the politicians from the Ambasadors to explain about the MKC Heroes work. The Ambassadors chaired the question time and raised questions from the school groups.

Our Regional Liaison Officer, Pete Hawley, joined guests from the Royal Marines, Lympstone and 29 Commando Royal Artillery and was impressed with the thought provoking and challenging questions which were raised.
