Story

Hello ! As an ex soldier, medically discharged with a paralysing neck injury in 1987 my new challenge is the Royal Parks Half Marathon. Whilst you're here, I'd like to ask you for three things, please read all my page  1-2-3 and below.       

No. 1 Let's deal with the money thing, I'd like you to give Combat Stress two pounds.  No more no less. 5,000 veterans are currently  supported by Combat Stress, incl. 1,000 from Afghanistan and Iraq). That amount of supporters @ £2 will double my target!. Please give £2 right now as gift aid to get the tax back.

No. 2 Then take 2 minutes reading about Combat Stress and their incredible work for Armed Forces veterans www.combatstress.org.uk/about-us/

No. 3  Please email this to 3 friends & contacts and ask them only for the same things. If just 3 of your friends follow suit and, in turn 3 of their friends do and so on, by the time we get to the 7th step, we've exceeded my target. Spread the word... if this really goes 'viral' that's even better, and all for two pounds, two minutes and an email to 3 people...

I'm sure we can do this, more importantly I'm sure we should do this. Because, frankly,if we can't find as many people to declare their support with a single, solitary pound for Combat Stress as there are veterans being supported by Combat Stress right now.... what does that say?
