Walking Home For Christmas is Walking With The Wounded’s campaign to support homeless and other vulnerable veterans this Christmas by helping them back into employment and independence.

  • Just £10+postage towards the cause to enter
  • Get a pack with a branded Santa hat, hi-vis bib and wristband
  • Walk as far as is challenging for you, be it 1 mile or 100
  • Fundraising is optional but could you raise £50?
  • Anywhere and any time in December

Many of our veterans have walked in far worse and more dangerous environments than we might care to imagine. This is your chance to be inspired by their determination and challenge yourself to take part.

Walk Captains

Enthused? Could you become a walk ‘Captain’ and organise a public walk?

  • Organise a walk, big or small, near you which anyone can join, to encourage others to get involved.
  • We’ll add it to our event map and champion your efforts.
  • You’ll get a special leaders pack.

How to become a Captain?

Simply add “I’m interested in becoming a Captain” in the comment box above when you pre-register. We will add you to our list and send you a special Captain pack and full details when the campaign launches in September.
