In March 2017, Kevin Timms of our Group Action team attended the Combat Stress Support Dinner at the National Army Museum. Irwin Mitchell was a dinner sponsor and was very pleased to show support for this charity.
More than 6,000 veterans across the UK are registered with Combat Stress who have seen a large increase in referrals over the past five years. We acknowledge the help needed by veterans with mental health conditions brought about by their military service and our specialist Armed Forces Compensation Scheme team, lead by Amanda Marsh, assist many veterans with claims for PTSD under the Scheme.
Kevin has worked with the Military Injury Claims team in the Lariam case and was pleased to represent Irwin Mitchell on the night.
The evening commenced with a welcome from General Sir Peter Wall, Combat Stress President, followed by speeches from Sue Freeth, the Chief Executive, and Paul Smith, a veteran who received treatment from Combat Stress during 2016.
One of the auction prizes was a ‘golden ticket’ experience donated by James Blunt’s manager, Todd Interland, including back stage passes to a London concert in November and an opportunity to meet James, who is a former Reconnaissance Officer for the British Army.
We have greatly enjoyed working with Combat Stress to date and we look forward to working with them on future challenges.
