We were contacted by Combat Stress to ask for help towards the expense of keeping their voluntary organisation going in Peterborough.
Elaine Danaher said “Our aim is to provide help and support for Ex-service personnel and their families who are experiencing mental issues from past and present military conflicts. Each month we have representatives from Combat Stress, MIND and the Veterans Agency, who are on hand to help anybody needing financial help, assistance with mental and other issues etc., giving pointers on how to arrange help from various relevant organisations.
With the help of the Dean of Peterborough Cathedral, we are able to have a room within the grounds of the Cathedral on the First Tuesday of each month. We have been up and running since June 2009, and our group is getting bigger every day. Everyone gives their time free, but we need constant funding to keep going to cover expenses such as the £34.00 for 2 hours each month, for the hire of the room.”
