Have a thought for veterans on Armed Forces Day
Veterans’ mental health charity, PTSD Resolution, is calling for your support on Armed Forces Day on 30 June.
PTSD Resolution provides free, effective local and prompt treatment to Veterans, Reservists and their families who have experienced trauma. It delivers treatment through a nationwide network of over 200 qualified therapists. It receives no government funding and needs your help to continue delivering support for those who need it.
Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support from currently serving troops, their families, veterans and cadets. There are many ways for people, communities and organisations across the country to show their support and get involved.
There are lots of fun ways you can fundraise for PTSD Resolution:
At school you could dress up in military colours at the office: British Army is red, dark blue for the Royal Navy or light blue for the Royal Air Force. Your PE lessons could include an assault course. Or maybe you know someone in the Armed Forces who could come in and take part in one of your lessons!
In your office you can dress-down or dress up on Friday 29th June or any other day! Or if you don’t want to dress up why not have a ‘Bake sale’.
We have everything you need to support you from collection boxes, T shirts, to flags, balloons, badges and leaflets. Just contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tony Gauvain CEO of PTSD Resolution said:
“The work we do is incredibly important – there is a spotlight on mental health at present and what we do is unique. We aim to work with ex-Service men and women who have mental health problems and which other services do not reach or have not been able to help. But we can only do that with support from the community. We hope as many people as possible will support us on Armed Forces Day.”
