Win a Limited Edition Wolsey Jacket from Walking With The Wounded

Enter this prize draw and you could you be the proud new owner of one of these limited edition Wolsey jackets.

This year, Walking Home For Christmas is proudly supported by Wolsey, who during World War 1 supplied over 18 million woollen jerseys, scarves and pieces of underwear to the British Armed Forces. Wolsey have kindly made a limited edition Walking With The Wounded branded waterproof…which could be yours!

THE PRIZE:

1 x Wolsey WWTW branded waterproof jacket (RRP £175)

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. “This time last year I was living in the woods. Thanks to WWTW, this Christmas I am in a job and have a roof over my head”, says Richard, who served 4 years as a Trooper in the 13/18th Royal Hussars.

Evidence shows that there are still thousands of ex-service personnel like Richard who are struggling or haven’t yet sought the support they require. Walking With The Wounded’s mission is to support all ex-servicemen and women with physical, mental or social injury to gain the skills and qualifications necessary to develop new careers outside the military, re-integrate into society and provide long term security for themselves and their families. 

This Christmas, Walking With The Wounded is asking people to do a walk of any sort between Friday 8th – Sunday 17th December for our wounded ex-servicemen and women, those who without our support will be on the streets, without a job, isolated from their family, in debt or in prison.

In addition to supporting these vulnerable men and women, Rod Eldridge, Clinical Lead at WWTW, reminds us that: “Walking as a form of physical activity is well known to be associated with improving mental health, particularly lowering rates of depression and anxiety across all age groups.”

Richard said: “I am looking forward to spending Christmas with my godson and his family. I’ll be able to buy them presents, something I never thought possible.”

If you would like to serve those who served us, please www.walkinghomeforchristmas.com

How to take part:

  • Sign up at www.walkinghomeforchristmas.com
  • Receive your Santa hat and fundraising pack in the post.
  • Set a date and put your best foot forward between Friday 8th – Sunday 17th December.

The results are in!

Congratulations to our winner
