Help for Heroes

Join Bell’s for an epic challenge covering the length and breadth of the United Kingdom, in support of Help for Heroes. To celebrate those with strength of character Bell’s has recruited an army of comedians, veterans and famous faces to roll a Bell’s whisky barrel 500 miles from our Blair Athol distillery in Perthshire, Scotland – through major city centres including Newcastle, Manchester and Birmingham – rolling to a stop at Help for Heroes flagship recovery centre at Tedworth House.

Along the route we will be hosting a number of one-off comedy gigs at Marston’s pubs (, jangling donation buckets and promoting our TEXT to donate number (Text ‘Bells’ to 70900).

So, if you want to raise a wee dram to a hero please support the Bell’s Barrel of Laughs and pledge your donation today.
