Footprints in the Snow: Jamie Lawson’s new single is supporting Walking Home For Christmas!

Walking With The Wounded is very excited to announce that award winning singer-songwriter, Jamie Lawson, has chosen to support Walking Home For Christmas this year. All funds raised from his new Christmas single, ‘Footprints in the Snow’, will go towards supporting ex-service personnel. WWTW hope the military community will get behind Jamie’s single in a bid to secure the number 1 spot this Christmas and support those who need it most.

Wednesday 1st November – Walking With The Wounded host a supporters’ drinks evening in Newcastle

Newcastle, join Walking With The Wounded at Scalini’s Loft Bar on Osborne Road, Newcastle upon Tyne for an informal drinks evening with an update on the charity and hear how you can become an ambassador for our Walking Home For Christmas campaign.

Military charity Walking With The Wounded (WWTW) is estimating it will treble the number of ex-servicemen and women it supports in 2018, following a 97% increase last year to more than 1,000. With Christmas fast approaching, for many a time of financial pressure and loneliness, more ex-service personnel than ever require support. “I realise that I have made a few mistakes in my life but the help I have received has been the stepping stone for me to make my life better and support my family,” says Simon from Sunderland who joined the Parachute Regiment in 2006, aged 17.

Norfolk, be part of a fun campaign this festive season to ensure our wounded ex-servicemen and women don’t spend another Christmas apart from their loved ones

Military charity Walking With The Wounded (WWTW) is estimating it will treble the number of ex-servicemen and women it supports in 2018, following a 97% increase last year to more than 1,000. With Christmas fast approaching, for many a time of financial pressure and loneliness, more ex-service personnel than ever require support. “WWTW, Project Nova and Step into Health have all given me a lot of support and direction. The harsh reality is that without this support I would probably have ended up in jail,” says Sean from Norwich, who served as an Infantry gunner in 26 Regiment Royal Artillery for 6 years.

This December, Walking With The Wounded is asking the people of Norfolk to sign up to their Christmas appeal, Walking Home For Christmas, to raise vital funds for those wounded who have little to look forward to this upcoming festive season.

In December 2016, Walking With The Wounded (WWTW) were awarded a grant of £40,000 by our Charity. The money has helped to fund their mental health support programme, Head Start, as well as provide Employment Advisor support for veterans, some of which are at risk of homelessness.

WWTW was established in 2010 and has since supported our veterans to re-integrate back into society by sustaining their independence. Their main focus is to utilise the inherent skills of our armed service personnel to support them on their journey back into employment in the civilian workplace.
