Walking home for a special cause

Our military teams based in Cardiff and Manchester have been fundraising for Walking with the Wounded (WWTW) by #WalkingHomeForChristmas.

The teams donned their Santa hats and walked around their respective cities to spread some Christmas joy, raising £620 in the process.

WWTW is a leading UK military charity that advocates for those who’ve served. Its message is a clear one: veterans deserve the utmost support, care and empowerment, irrespective of whether their wounds be physical, mental or social in nature.
