HOW YOUR MONEY HELPS
Every penny you raise from your walk will directly support Walking With The Wounded's employment, mental health and care coordination programmes for 'at risk' ex military to help them back into society and lead independent lives.
The majority of veterans transition without an issue but for a minority the path is difficult. Christmas is great is you have a home, a family, a job, the ability to buy presents and the head-space to cope with family demands, gatherings and fireworks; it's tough if you don't.
With your support, we can help ex military and their families who are socially isolated this Christmas and give them something to look forward to next year. Without your efforts this won't be possible.
