Over the course of December, supporters of Walking With The Wounded across the nation donned their walking boots and Santa hats, stepping out to show their solidarity with veterans and their families during the 2023 festive season.

For our 10th anniversary event, we witnessed remarkable challenges undertaken by our supporters.

Glenn covered an impressive 160 miles from Manchester to Lockerbie, WWTW team member Steve walked from Manchester to Blackpool within 24 hours, Matthew conquered the Welsh Three Peaks Challenge, 13 Company South West London Army Cadet Force marched 14 miles across London, Lee journeyed from the Shetland Islands home to Aberdeenshire, and the Tidworth RBL Football team tackled a 245-mile challenge in just 36 hours. The dedication shown by our supporters to those who served this Christmas has left us in awe.

You can read our supporter challenges, and more, on our Walking Home For Christmas blog.

With over 1,300 walkers and 160 teams participating in Walking Home For Christmas this year, the collective fundraising has raised an astounding £104,000 and counting! These funds will contribute to Walking With The Wounded’s life-changing veteran support programmes, making a meaningful impact on the lives of those who have served and their families.

We'd like to thank everyone who signed-up to our annual Walking Home For Christmas event.
