A few years ago, Eliot took part in a documentary with Gary Barlow filmed in Camp Bastion, called Journey to Afghanistan. It was an experience Eliot says, changed his life, and it gave him a first-hand appreciation of Jimi Heselden’s invention: the blast wall Bastion.
Jimi Heselden was 62 when he died. The businessman founded the Leeds-based firm Hesco Bastion, which developed the revolutionary ‘blast wall’ basket, which protects soldiers, as well as saving civilians used as flood defence. The invention is thought to have saved thousands of lives. Camp Bastion is named after his invention.
In 2006, Jimi gave £1.5m to Help for Heroes. His family wished his legacy to live on in the many charities he supported in his lifetime. This concert is in memory of Jimi, and to continue his legacy. The concert will feature Jo Heselden and some of Eliot’s star friends and others to raise awareness of ‘Hidden Wounds,’ helping to fundraise for ‘Help for Heroes’ and their mental health services. On the night Eliot and Jo will also be launching a new single called ‘Hidden Wounds.’
