Walking Home For Christmas
Cerco IT’s staff are supporting an event that ‘Walking With The Wounded’ have organised called ‘Walking Home For Christmas’ supporting homeless veterans with physical, mental or social injuries on their journey to long-term security, independence and employment.
The idea is to ditch the car, train, tube or bus for the day and walk home instead, or walk to a friends house, Christmas Party etc whilst wearing a Santa Hat and florescent vest to get the word out.
So far 1800 people have registered including the staff at Cerco IT and are covering over 10,000 miles. ‘Walking With The Wounded’ are looking at raising £250,000 which will allow them to open five new project across the UK and support hundreds of veterans who are sleeping rough, sofa surfing or in temporary accommodation, with little to look forward to.
