An army veteran is due to hold two events to raise funds for the charity which helped her cope with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Samantha Grundy, aged 37, from Thorne, has been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, (PTSD), for over ten years, after serving in Iraq in 2003.

After she was medically discharged from the army in 2005, she turned to Combat Stress - a veterans’ mental health charity who treat ex-armed forces’ health conditions including PTSD, depression and anxiety.

The charity helped Samantha to manage her condition - and now she wants to give something back.

“I will never be cured of PTSD, but it is something I can learn to cope with, with support from Combat Stress,” she said.

Samantha will run a family fun day and a music and burlesque evening on Saturday November 12.

Both are to be held at Hatfield’s pub, Ash Hill Road, Hatfield. The family day, which will include a range of family activities including top table games, is from 2pm to 5pm.

The music and burlesque evening starts at 7pm and tickets are £10. For more information or tickets, e-mail Samantha at tigger_minx@hotmail.com.
