  The Coldstream Guards Band will be supporting the Combat Stress Charity

The Band of The Coldstream Guards will be hosting a very special concert on St. George's Day (April 23rd) at Cadogan Hall in London this year.

The event is in aid of the charity Combat Stress — an organisation that is undertaking essential recuperation work and support for servicemen and women who are suffering with serious health issues brought on through trauma, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Shell shock

The charity was originally called the Ex-Servicemen's Welfare Society and they opened their first recuperative home in 1920 on Putney Hill in South West London.

For almost a century, now they have provided an invaluable service to people who have suffered with the 'invisible' injuries of war and active service — from the 'shell shock' of the First World War to the modern day traumas of conflict.

In 1919 Combat Stress started occupational therapy and today that pioneering attitude continues to help the bravest of the brave — from a phone call to community care4BR

Important

A spokesperson for the event told 4BR: "Combat Stress changed attitudes to mental health. The charity's founders believed that veterans could be helped to cope with their mental health problems through a rehabilitation programme.

In 1919 Combat Stress started occupational therapy and today that pioneering attitude continues to help the bravest of the brave — from a phone call to community care.

It such an important charitable service and we are honoured to support it with this concert."
