I'm supporting our wounded.
I've joined a team taking on the Cumbrian Challenge - hiking around the Lake District alongside teams of veterans who are getting their lives back on track thanks to Walking With The Wounded.
We're the lucky ones with jobs, families, homes. Most people leave the military without any issue, but for a small minority it isn't so easy.
Walking With The Wounded support the veterans who are struggling with their mental health, who are hard to reach, socially isolated, homeless, in police custody... men and women with little to look forward to but who want to get back into society and employment – which is at the heart of what we do.
Please help me and my team hit our target. Every £675 can enable a veteran to access 1-2-1 private mental health therapy within an average of 4 days of referral. Imagine that.
Thank you so much in advance for your support.
