Presenting partner unveiled for this year’s adventures in the Lake District

Walking With The Wounded is pleased to announce BAE Systems Submarines as a Presenting Partner of the Cumbrian Challenge 2016.

The flagship event for the charity is held on the fells above Grasmere on 14 May 2016 for teams of four and this year aims to have up to 200 teams taking part – with each team supporting a wounded veteran back into work with their fundraising efforts prior to the event.

BAE Systems Submarines, which designs and builds some of the world’s most technologically advanced submarines for the Royal Navy, is based in Barrow on the edge of the Lake District and in 2015 generously sponsored the tech t-shirts for the event.

WWTW Co-founder and CEO Ed Parker said: “BAE Systems Submarines joined us at the Cumbrian Challenge last year for the first time and we are really pleased by their decision to develop this commitment, helping us to grow the event and its impact supporting wounded into work.

“The event is a real opportunity for corporates to engage their internal teams while doing good. To have BAE Systems Submarines behind us is a step change for this extremely fun, and testing, challenge. We look forward to meeting many teams from the company on the fells.”

Jackie Arnold, is Head of Strategy at BAE Systems Submarines and is responsible for the Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility. She said: “We are delighted to be a main sponsor of this event.

“For over a century, we have been equipping the Royal Navy with the products and technology they need to keep the nation safe. Showing our support to veterans who have dedicated so much of their lives to the service is really important. We hope this year’s event will be a resounding success.”
