Supporting Walking With the Wounded 2022

For the third time, an intrepid group of walkers took on the Cumbrian Challenge on the 14th May in support of Walking with the Wounded.

The charity provides early intervention programmes and speed up access to therapy to help change the lives of veterans and their families. They support those “who have fallen the furthest, men and women struggling with mental health issues, unemployment, homelessness or caught in police custody.”

We pulled together three teams to take on the challenge and help raise much needed funds for the charity, all taking on a walking route around the Lake District alongside teams of veterans. They all completed “The Tougher” challenge climbing 13 peaks over 32km with a 1885m ascent.

See our teams’ fundraising pages below:

Team 1 (Dan, Josh & Sam)
Team 2 (Charlotte, Melinda, Cameron & Ryan)
Team 3 (Andy, Phil, Peter & Tom)

Rob Foster, Social Value Committee Chair said before the event:

“We can’t wait to take on the Cumbrian Challenge once again this year. This event always causes a buzz around the office and it’s great to see so many new participants getting involved this year. Volunteering our time and raising money for charities and community projects is a key part of our Social Value Agenda and we’re delighted we can support the valuable work Walking with the Wounded do.”
