I'm supporting our wounded. Are you with me?
Along with two other BAE Systems graduates I've signed up to do a hike in the Lake District- to support those who served. There are routes of varying difficulty but our aim is to hopefully complete the toughest one! We're taking this challenge on alongside teams of veterans who are getting their lives back on track thanks to Walking With The Wounded.
Why? 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 WWTW does.
Please help me and my team hit our target. Every £675 can enable a veteran or their immediate family 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.
