The Care after Combat Trustees have voted for their new Chairman, Commander Stephen Anderson RN.
Care after Combat CEO, Jim Davidson OBE said: “I first met Stephen when he was XO on HMS Dauntless. He then became Captain of HMS Sutherland and proceeded to take this charity [Care after Combat] to his heart and to the hearts of the ships company.
“He was responsible in raising thousands for Care after Combat including taking part in a cycle trip from Plymouth to Sutherland in Scotland and back…non-stop! He still can’t sit down comfortably!”
Stephen has worked tirelessly with all the other Care after Combat Trustees to reshape the way the charity does things.
Jim continued: “Stephen has been a great advisor to us all and once I drove north to sit in his day cabin for a thoughtful hour and listened to calm advice from this great man.
“I would personally like to thank him for always being at the end of a phone.”
Everyone at Care after Combat extend their congratulations to Stephen.
