BAE - Cumbrian Camels 1

at BAE

Still training and fund-raising!

The whole team have been involved in various fund-raising activities - things that involve food mainly...tuck shops and the like!  Allan and Ray completed the Coniston14 - the first main challenge of this year.  We're very proud of them both.

We're also planning a boot fair - the first date was cancelled due to Storm Hannah so we hope to get organised for a second attempt soon.  Thank you to everyone that has donated items.  We've already raised £50 from said Boot Fair without leaving home - you have to be imaginitive to fund raise!  

We've got a pub quiz coming up next week - tickets sold out within minutes of going on sale, so it should be a good night.  Lots of raffle prizes also on offer...

This Saturday is a biggy - the Coniston to Barrow walk.  Just over 21 miles to cover - we are hoping for good weather but it's looking a bit of a mixed bag at the minute so we'll be packing clothes for all seasons!

Then a week on Saturday THE big one...wish us luck!

We've been quiet - but that's because we've been busy...

Latest update - can be found here...

We are supporting our wounded. Are you with us?

We are taking on the Cumbrian Challenge - a big old day hauling ourselves around the Lake District alongside teams of veterans who are getting their lives back on track thanks to Walking With The Wounded. 

Our ask is quite simple. Please dig deep, or sign up a team to take us on. 

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 we do.

Please help our team hit our £2k 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.
