Andrews Sykes make donation to Care after Combat

Andrews Sykes are proud to support worthy causes and local initiatives – whether these are employment schemes, charity events or even sporting activities. So when the opportunity arose to help Care after Combat create their first veteran accommodation centre, we were delighted to get involved.

In March 2015, Simon Weston House opened to homeless ex-servicemen who have struggled to reintegrate into society following their time in the British Armed Forces. The Care after Combat team then help residents source permanent living quarters, while also providing vocational training and employment openings.

Of course, like any charitable organisation, Care after Combat relies on donations and financial support in order to maintain the excellent level of service offered since the charity was formed in 2014. Professional assistance certainly does not come cheap, and the scale with which it is required renders the constant generation of income absolutely critical.

We at Andrews Sykes are only too happy to do our bit for ex-servicemen, and are therefore delighted to announce that a four-figure sum has been donated by us to ensure Simon Weston House is kept in the condition it deserves to be.

One of the 12 self-contained flats has now been named after the company and is adorned with a plaque that acknowledges our support of the scheme.
