On this beautiful island of Cyprus there are so many unoccupied villas/apartments being looked after by third parties, so the thought came to contact the owners to ask if they would like to donate a week or so, FREE OF CHARGE, as holiday accommodation, in order that our military who have been injured, disabled or traumatised during their assignments in conflicts could have a well earned break.

Poppyscotland supports veterans and their dependants in Scotland through the help
of dedicated volunteers and donors. All money raised is spent in the following ways.
- Providing direct financial assistance to individuals
- Funding a pensions advice service for veterans
- Providing grants and research to organisations delivering specialist support to veterans in Scotland also supporting the employment of veterans with disabilities in the Edinburgh-based Lady Haig’s Poppy Factory.
In 2006 we launched a new identity – Poppyscotland, to help with easier identification
of our round the year work in fundraising and support to veterans.
The Earl Haig Fund Scotland has not disappeared
Help for Heroes was founded by Bryn and Emma Parry in October 2007 out of a desire to help the wounded Servicemen and women returning from Afghanistan and Iraq.
The message of the charity is simple: We are strictly non political and non critical; we simply want to help. We believe that anyone who volunteers to serve in time of war, knowing that they may risk all, is a hero. These are ordinary people doing extraordinary things and some of them are
living with the consequences of their service for life.
We may not be able to prevent our soldiers from being wounded, but together we can help them get better.

Combat Stress is the leading charity specialising in the care of British Veterans’ mental health. Many Veterans leave the Armed Forces with highly debilitating conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety disorders. Their problems can remain masked for years, and they and their families may be struggling to deal with matters at home.
Combat Stress has three short-stay specialist treatment centres, as well as a nationwide community outreach service providing support to Veterans in their local area. We are currently caring for over 300 Veterans of the operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and demand for our unique services continues to rise, with 1,257 new cases referred to us last year alone. Since our formation in 1919, Combat Stress has helped almost 100,000 Veterans. Your support makes a real difference to the help we can offer a particularly needful, but often overlooked, group of Veterans as they rebuild their lives.
