Supporting out veterans with Combat Stress

On August 6th 2022 , Ferocious Dog unveiled their heartfelt single, “Broken Soldier,” marking the second release from their album, “The Hope,”.

With “Broken Soldier,” Ferocious Dog aims to not only share their music but also make a positive impact. They’ve teamed up with Combat Stress, the UK’s foremost charity dedicated to veterans’ mental health. For over a century, Combat Stress has been providing essential support to former servicemen and women grappling with mental health issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression.

In a commendable gesture, Ferocious Dog encourages everyone to contribute to Combat Stress, supporting the well-being of veterans. They’re not just spreading awareness; they’re backing it up with a substantial donation of £5,000 from the Lee Bonsall Memorial Fund to the charity.

Ken Bonsall, reflecting on this collaboration, said, “Having worked closely with Combat Stress for many years since the loss of our son Lee and setting up the Lee Bonsall Memorial Fund to raise awareness of PTSD…Our ambition was that if we could save one veteran or family from going through the pain and heartache we suffered, then we would have achieved our goal.”

Combat Stress’ Director of Fundraising, Robert Marsh, expressed gratitude, saying, “On behalf of Combat Stress and the veterans that seek our unique and vital help, we would like to say thank you to Ken and Karen, their family and friends, the band Ferocious Dog, and the Lee Bonsall Memorial Fund…We very much hope that ‘Broken Soldier’ is a huge success and the awareness generated will encourage other veterans to seek help and not suffer in silence, and that it’s okay not to be okay.”

The poignant lyrics of “Broken Soldier” were penned by Ken’s close friend, Andrew Hawkins, who shared a connection with Lee. Ferocious Dog believes that this song and its accompanying video will serve as a beacon of hope for veterans facing complex mental health conditions like PTSD, urging them to reach out and seek the support they deserve.

Supporting Captain Paul Watson Foundation, help protect our seas

Championing the Seas: Ferocious Dog’s Support for The Captain Paul Watson Foundation

The Captain Paul Watson Foundation is a remarkable public charity dedicated to the vital cause of ocean conservation. As a steadfast supporter of the Captain Paul Watson Foundation (CPWF), we are inspired by its unwavering commitment to protect our precious oceans.

The CPWF serves as a resolute guardian of our oceans, tirelessly educating and shining a spotlight on the exploitation of marine ecosystems and species. It is not merely a nonprofit; it stands as a global powerhouse in the fight against illegal poaching.


In harmony with the United Nations World Charter for Nature, the CPWF operates efficiently with minimal bureaucracy, harnessing the power of media to raise awareness. It stands shoulder to shoulder with environmentalists and conservationists, courageously confronting the threats posed by illegal fishing and poaching. Captain Paul Watson’s philosophy of “aggressive nonviolence” is the foundation’s strategic approach, and its dedicated crew, Neptune’s Pirates, are the valiant defenders of the sea.

Every resource in the CPWF’s arsenal is a weapon used to fund scientific research, launch daring maritime operations, conduct relentless investigations, and support online and land-based campaigns. The CPWF fearlessly tackles urgent ocean threats, including biodiversity loss, declining phytoplankton populations, illegal fishing, the impacts of climate change, plastic and noise pollution, ocean acidification, and the protection of sea turtles, seabirds, endangered species, and the world’s coral reefs.

The CPWF serves as our beacon of hope, a rallying point for those of us who cherish our oceans. It leads the charge with unwavering determination in the battle to secure a thriving future for the lifeblood of our planet.
