HOW YOU CAN HELP THIS CHRISTMAS
Serve those who served us by getting out in the elements and inspiring your networks to donate to the cause.
Walking Home For Christmas is Walking With The Wounded's annual, mass participation walking challenge to raise funds for those who served and are in need.
Thousands of people have undertaken memorable, individual walks and made it part of their Christmas countdown routine - to say thank you.
It's easily COVID-compliant, you'll turn heads, stand out from your colleagues and have an exhilarating experience. Crucially, if you sign up to walk then the more ex-servicemen, women and their families we can support through:
- Innovative programmes in partnership with the NHS.
- Embedding employment advisers within NHS veteran mental health teams.
- Providing immediate access to private 1-2-1 mental health care.
- Intercepting ex-military in police custody suites.
You'll help save jobs, marriages, homes and lives.
That's worth stepping out of your comfort zone for.
- Map out a walk that raises an eyebrow.
- Do something different that will prompt your friends and colleagues to donate.
- Give hope to ex-military who have the skills and the determination to make a valuable contribution to society once more.
They have walked in far more dangerous places for us. So no, a mile won't do, unless it's challenging for you. #WalkingHomeForChristmas.
“In the Army you believe you’re invincible and that nothing is going to hurt you. But when you come out you realise you’re not Superman and that what can hurt you may well not be physical but might be something inside.
It took a long time getting to the point where I admitted I needed to speak to somebody.” DUNCAN WELTON, ex Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, now back in work and able to buy his son presents.
