Walking Home for Christmas

Walking Home For Christmas is Walking With The Wounded’s annual, mass participation campaign for members of the public to serve those who served us by doing a fundraising walk of their own.

The event raises money to support ex-servicemen and women with mental, physical or social injuries (such as homelessness) back into independence and employment and able to support themselves and their loved ones next Christmas.

When is it? Friday 8th – Sunday 17th December (although participants can do their walk outside of these dates)

How does it work?

  1. Sign up via www.WalkingHomeForChristmas.com (£10+postage charge to help cover costs)
  2. Set up a JustGiving page as part of the sign up process
  3. Receive a pack with a branded Santa hat, ideas and fundraising tips e.g. a sweepstake sheet.
  4. Raise money for the cause and get walking anytime between 8th - 17th.
