It was announced today (19 November) that Combat Stress will be the charity of the day for the Army Navy match 2019. The match, which will take place at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 4 May, is the largest amateur sporting event in the UK and regularly draws a capacity crowd of 81,000.
We will be collecting donations on the day and the charity will receive £1 for every programme purchased and £1 for every reusable cup that is returned to charity bins around the stadium.
Sue Freeth, Chief Executive of Combat Stress, says: “It’s a great honour to be the chosen charity of the Army v Navy 2019 match. With more than 80,000 people expected to attend, it will be a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of veterans’ mental health and the importance of seeking help. “We look forward to seeing everyone at Twickenham Stadium and wish the Army and Royal Navy teams the very best of luck.”
