Military People are supporting our wounded. Are you with us?
We are Military People, a team of veterans and reservists 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 growing minority it isn't so easy.
Our Armed Forces have endured decades of constant operations recently and the effect on our people both physically and mentally has taken it's toll.
This is personal to us, our everyday work supports Service Leavers, Veterans and where possible our Wounded, Injured and Sick gain sustainable employment. Our colleague Rich Walsh who will be walking with us was diagnosed with PTSD in 2013 and continues to battle with the disease and the stigma surrounding this life altering illness. WWTW came to his aid in 2015 and we want to raise awareness, break the stigma and raise loads of money to help the charity help those truly in need.
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.
