A collection held at the recent Cornish Pirates versus Jersey Reds match to support ‘Combat Stress’ helped raise £475-62 for the worthy charity.
Combat Stress is UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health. For almost a century, it has helped former servicemen and women deal with trauma-related mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Today, the charity provides support to veterans from every service and every conflict. On the phone and online, in the community and at specialist centres. Their mission is to raise awareness that invisible injuries can be just as hard to cope with as physical ones. So, when a veteran is having a tough time, Combat Stress is there to help them tackle the past and take on the future.
Thanking the Cornish Pirates for their accommodating and friendly support, Volunteer & Fundraising Officer Peter Butterworth said:
A big thank you is expressed to the Cornish Pirates and their generous supporters, not just for the collection but also for helping raise awareness of Combat Stress and the work we do to help improve the mental health of our veterans. This is a great contribution to our work and reputation.
