Combat Stress


Deleted 7

Since the end of World War 2, the vast majority of the British People have known nothing but peace. But it's been a very different story for the men and women of our armed forces. Time and again, they have been in the front line defending Britain's interests. In Brunei, Borneo, Indonesia, Malaya, the Falklands and the Gulf. More recently, they have played a central peace keeping role in the Balkans, Cambodia, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and elsewhere. And closer to home, many thousands have been involved during the thirty year long campaign in Northern Ireland, an operation that has perhaps been the most difficult and dangerous of all.

Each of these conflicts, without exception, has resulted in psychiatric casualties. And for many who are affected, the problems may take years, perhaps decades to surface.

The Ex-Services Mental Welfare Society, COMBAT STRESS, exists to serve these men and women. For over 80 years, we have been the only services charity specialising in helping those of all ranks from the Armed Forces and the Merchant Navy suffering from psychological disability as a result of their service.

Through our national network of welfare officers, we visit clients at home in order to establish how best we can improve their quality of life.

WHO? COMBAT STRESS (Ex Services Mental Welfare Society)

WHAT? VOLUNTEER HELP URGENTLY required for our FIRST EVER London-Wide Street Collection!

WHEN? SATURDAY 6th MAY 2006, 10am to 4pm. HOWEVER, we're not expecting everyone to do a whole day if you can't. We would be very happy for just an hour of your time (perhaps pre-match!!)!!

WHERE? LONDON - we're covering Kingston, Richmond, Wandsworth (Putney), Merton (Wimbledon), Sutton, Croydon, Bromley, Greenwich, Havering, Islington, Westminster (Westminster & Covent Garden), Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham, Southwark, Brent, Bexley & Lambeth (Clapham Junction and The Oval). Just choose where you would prefer to be based.

WHY? Combat Stress provides a vital service (the only Uk Charity) to ex-Service personnel suffering from psychological injury. With The Society now seeing an increased amount of veteran referals each year (particularly from Iraq), we need to raise greater awareness and vital funds to ensure that we can continue to provide the highest level of treatment possible.

All in all we hope to have a fun day out on the streets of London raising money for a superb cause.

Please get in touch with me (Rosie Gibbons) on dfprsec @ or 01372 841616 if you are able to spare a little time for us.

As an added incentive, we have Chessington World of Adventures and Thorpe Park tickets up for grabs for those who collect the highest amounts on the day!
