Community Case Study

As part of the Cobham ethos to 'protect lives and livelihoods', we have many employees who are helping to defend our armed forces better against IEDs. Cobham employees have leading-edge expertise in developing advanced Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR) detection systems to support Counter-IED and mine clearance operations, which include both hand-held and vehicle-based products.



The Big Battlefield Bike Ride (BBBR) is the signature fundraiser for Help for Heroes - a charity formed to help those who have been wounded in Britain's conflicts. The money raised goes towards helping the up to 75,000 servicemen and women, some of whom have been injured by IEDs and now need support, inspiration and enablement, to achieve their full potential.


Graham Degg, Manufacturing Operations Manager at Cobham Technical Services, has taken up the BBBR challenge no fewer than three times in three years! His hard work and determination have paid off: Graham has raised £11,500 for Help for Heroes so far, with a target of raising another £6,000 for his third race which took place in June 2015.


Graham remarked, 'The event is challenging, emotional and truly awe-inspiring. I got to ride alongside genuine heroes of mine - some of whom have survived the terrible physical and mental wounds of battle. In taking on the BBBR they rewrite the dictionary definition of courage. Help for Heroes empowers them to do that.'
