Santa hats and jingle bells all the way! Wilkin Chapman’s festive stride-outs will raise thousands of pounds for veterans.
Today's the day…our Wilkin Chapman teams are getting ready to set off on their Santa stride-outs!
Joining the national Walking Home For Christmas fund-raiser for our country’s veterans and their families, scores of our team members along with their relatives, friends – and pets – are taking to the streets on their sponsored walks. And we want as many people as possible to help us raise money to fund vital mental wellbeing treatments for veterans in need this Christmas.
Grimsby: A total of 25 walkers and a dog will set off from our town headquarters at Cartergate at 4.30pm today. Complete with Santa hats they will walk a 7-mile route to Cleethorpes Pier and then back into Grimsby and Docks Beers where they aim to be at around 6.30pm. Their fund-raising total as of this morning is £1,611.27. Donate at: https://www.walkinghomeforchristmas.com/teams/wilkin-chapman-grimsby
Beverley: Between noon and 2pm, walkers will be striding out from the office at The Hall, in Lairgate on a 2.5-mile route around the town, aiming to complete as many laps as possible in a two-hour window. They hope to complete a collective total of 101 miles in order to commemorate the end of the First World War. If you see them give them a wave and don’t forget to donate to https://www.walkinghomeforchristmas.com/teams/wilkin-chapman-beverley Fund-raising total at 10.30am today: £926.84.
Lincoln: Walkers from the Lincoln office have been taking mile-long strolls around The Brayford for the last week or so and continue with lunchtime and evening walks today. They are hoping to walk a total of 617 miles – it was the Scampton-based 617 Squadron, ‘The Dambusters’, that was famed for its actions during Operation Chastise against German dams during the Second World War. Come on let’s help them raise even more, donate at https://www.walkinghomeforchristmas.com/teams/wilkin-chapman-lincoln Fund-raising total at 10.30am today: £761.55.
Walking Home For Christmas is being organised across the UK by the national charity Walking With The Wounded, which wants as many people as possible to take part in walks to raise money for the wellbeing and support of veterans.
Wilkin Chapman’s aim is to raise a total of £4,725 which will fund individual mental wellbeing programmes for seven veterans…so let’s keep donating.
