Donating & Fundraising
Fundraising and Donations are vital to development of The Mark Wright Project, our Centre and the services that we provide to our ex-service men and women and their families.
These brave men and women answered the call, and served our country. However, war zone/combat exposure can be a life changing experience therefore it is not uncommon for many of them to suffer some form of trauma and stress associated these experiences. For many of our ex-service men and women the return to civilian life can be difficult, but early intervention and professional support can help in minimising the associated mental health problems and ease their transition back into civilian life. So please help us to help our ex service men and women and their families.
The Centre’s monthly running costs are £7,500
1 Therapy/Counselling day costs are £250
1 Complimentary therapy day costs are £200
