Corps raises £11,000 for veteran’s mental health charity

Corps Security has raised over £11,000 for veteran’s mental health charity, Combat Stress by cycling from Glasgow to London during a seven-day challenge in April. 

The Tour De Corps team cycled the length of the country, beginning at the Corps Monitoring Alarm Receiving Centre in Glasgow, and visiting all local branch offices of Corps Security on the way, including Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff, Bristol, until reaching the finish line in Farringdon, London, seven days later. 

Corps Security presented the cheque at Combat Stress’ annual Supporters Dinner in London, which provides the charity with the opportunity to thank its supporters, whilst raising money through speeches, an auction and silent auction which raises thousands of pounds to support the essential work of the charity. 

Andy Topp, Sales and Marketing Director at Corps Security and participant on the Tour De Corps challenge commented: “We were delighted to attend the fundraising dinner for Combat Stress in May and felt this provided the perfect opportunity to present our Tour de Corps cheque. We would like to thank the amazing riders for such a stella effort, and to all those who sponsored us throughout the week, which saw us surpass our initial £5,000 target at the beginning of the challenge and passing our secondary target of £10,000 by the end of day seven. Every penny raised will support UK veterans with their mental health, and in particular their families to help those veterans integrate into civilian life.” 

Corps Security, as a Social Enterprise, has made a commitment to Combat Stress alongside a few other charities, in support of UK veterans, with some customers donating one per cent of their contract value to the charity every year.
