Corps Security Presents Cheque to Combat Stress at Fundraising Dinner
Corps Security presented a significant contribution to Combat Stress, a prominent charity focused on veterans’ mental health, during a fundraising dinner held in London.
The donation came as a result of the Tour De Corps team’s remarkable achievement in raising over £11,000 for the charity. The team accomplished this impressive feat by embarking on a gruelling 7-day cycling challenge from Glasgow to London in April.
Covering the length of the country, the Corps Security colleagues commenced their journey at the company’s Monitoring Alarm Receiving Centre in Glasgow and made stops at various local branch offices, including Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff, and Bristol, before reaching their final destination in Farringdon, London, a week later.
Andy Topp, sales and marketing director, and a participant in the Tour De Corps challenge, expressed his delight at attending the Combat Stress fundraising dinner in May. He emphasised that the event provided the perfect opportunity to present the Tour De Corps cheque to the charity.
Topp also extended his gratitude to the exceptional riders for their stellar efforts and thanked all the sponsors who supported the cause throughout the challenging week. He highlighted that the initial fundraising target of £5,000 was quickly surpassed, with the team ultimately surpassing their secondary target of £10,000 by the end of the seventh day.
Further, he emphasised how every penny raised would support UK veterans directly by addressing mental health challenges, facilitating their integration into civilian life and helping their families.
Combat Stress organises an annual Supporters Dinner, which serves as an opportunity to express gratitude to their supporters while raising funds through speeches, auctions and ‘silent’ auctions. The event consistently generates thousands of pounds to support the vital work carried out by the charity.
As a Social Enterprise, Corps Security has made a commitment to Combat Stress, among other charities, in support of UK veterans. In a demonstration of their dedication, some of their customers generously donate 1 per cent of their contract value to the charity on an annual basis.
