Bryn Parry

Bryn Parry

Bryn Parry is co-founder of Help for Heroes, a breakthrough charity supporting troops which, in its first three years, raised over £70m.

He set up the charity with his wife and business partner Emma Parry in October 2007 after their son, Tom, joined the armed forces. 

The charity is based in Bryn Parry Studios, where Bryn ran a successful framing and art company based around his cartoon and caricature designs for many years until the charity grew in importance, eventually eclipsing his art career. 

Bryn's art was first fostered through his work in the army, which he left in 1985, after one of his paintings was commissioned as a regimental Christmas card.
