Team from Cygnet Health Care in Manchester walking home for Christmas to support veterans’ mental health
On December 13th, a team from Cygnet Health Care in Manchester will walk 11 miles from Walking With The Wounded’s (‘WWTW’) Manchester hub on Canada Street to Cygnet Health Care offices in Bury.
The team are taking on the challenge to support WWTW’s ‘Walking Home For Christmas’ campaign and to raise vital funds to support veterans’ mental health this Christmas.
Barry Swire, Cygnet Health Care Operations Director South East and Armed Forces Champion, is a member of the team taking on the challenge next week. Commenting on the challenge, Barry said, “I served in the Armed Forces and, I wanted to take on a challenge with colleagues from Cygnet Health Care that would support fellow veterans this Christmas. Walking With The Wounded’s ‘Walking Home For Christmas’ challenge presents the perfect opportunity for colleagues to come together, get outside and walk to support a great cause.”
Walking Home for Christmas is an annual fundraising campaign for Walking With The Wounded, a charity that provides mental health, employment, care coordination and volunteering opportunities for vulnerable veterans. The campaign encourages anyone from any walk of life to register and fundraise by undertaking a walk to support veterans that need it.
The campaign invites anyone to register for free, receive a branded Santa hat and do a sponsored walk home, somewhere important to them anytime between 10th -20th December.
