Helping Veterans Like Piers

Helping Veterans Like Piers

With now less than a week to go before the first event, we would take this opportunity to remind everyone, our supporters and those who are planning to donate, exactly the kind of people we hope to help by raising funds for Combat Stress. In the past decade, the number of military personnel who have taken their own life has doubled, with many more suffering from longer term mental health issues. There are many of us that have served on operations and have lost family and friends, and that’s hard enough for everyone, for the unit, for the families, but it’s even worse when they come home and they feel like they’re in an safe environment, and they lose a life.

Combat Stress, the charity and the people, are really important to Sip. They are the one's who deal directly with veterans suffering with mental health issues on a day to day basis. There are other charities out there that do deal with that, but with a history dating back over one hundred years, helping in excess of thirty thousand service personnel in the past year alone, the service they provide is literally life changing for the personnel involved. They are the people that look after those who are fearful to speak about it, those suffering in silence, and those that put on a brave face whilst dealing with the daily anguish. It’s those people that we are trying to help, raising funds for a more than worthy charity, caring people who can really make a difference.

Watch the video below, hear a personal story from Piers, and help veterans like him today. Your support, whether that be via a donation or by simply sharing our message on social media, is key to the success of our event. Donating via our website is safe, quick and easy and all transactions are collected and processed securely in partnership with Just Giving. Every penny counts as we target raising a sizable amount for the charity. We are also accepting donations in person and via Facebook, if those methods are better for you. You can track the progress of campaign via our website homepage, which features a handy feed from our fundraising profile, displaying donation totals and the journey towards our target.

Day Four Taking Its Toll

Friday 2nd July 2021
Day four ended with disappointment for Sip, as the team transferred back to Dishforth in the early hours of Friday morning, the second clockwise loop of the Yorkshire Three Peaks deemed too dangerous for him to continue. Despite the setback, he continued with the trekking back at base, successfully completing the twenty four hour challenge, and achieving a full loop of the peaks in under twelve hours. That feat alone is one that most people struggle to do with fresh legs, let alone after one ...

Day Five Scaling New Heights

Saturday 3rd July 2021
Day five reached new heights for the Sip and the team, putting the disappointment of Thursday behind them. This time descent was order of the day, with twenty four hours of abseiling at the Exchange Flags building in Liverpool city centre. A historically prominent building, used during the second world war as a command centre for marine fleet, it posed as the ideal base for day five, after a late scramble to secure a new venue from the Riverside Stadium in Middlesbrough. Originally planned...

Day Six and in Steady Waters

Sunday 4th July 2021
A marina on the Ripon Canal in Yorkshire was basecamp for day six of Sip’s mammoth challenge, traveling back to familiar territory for a twenty four hour paddle up and down the steady waters. After the heights and undulation of the last three days, climbing, mountain trekking and abseiling, canoeing and a more rural setting provided a more peaceful backdrop to todays challenge, an important one for Sip and the team to reflect on the scale of the achievement so far. At the start of this day...
