Christopher is a proud Coldstream Guardsman who served the regiment from 1977 to 1986 seeing active service in Northern Ireland. He was married with 5 kids and gainfully employed for many years. Unfortunately he lost one of his sons in 1986, and then his beloved wife in 2003 to Cancer, and his sister in 2016 which created a massive strain on Chris over the years. In recent times Christopher has been made redundant from his job, and struggled with Anxiety, depression and associated agoraphobia and reclusiveness, having been diagnosed with PTSD.
Christopher is very self isolated and not had face to face contact with anyone for over a year now. He is currently unemployed, but trying his best to battle through. He has recently lost his car, and its my hope we can raise funds to buy him a run around as he needs a car to carry out various responsibilities, get to appointments, visit family, and try to get a job. He is also a proud man, and would prefer to remain anonymous for the time being. Can you Help with a small donation?
