Last year the campaign raised more than ?240,000 and over 5,000 miles were walked ? supporting more than 250 vulnerable veterans re-integrate back into society and regain their independence.

WWTW director of fundraising Andrew Cook said: ?Many of our ex-military personnel face a Christmas and New Year without much sparkle. We are so grateful to the huge numbers of you who accept our challenge to stride out on their behalf before Christmas, in a determined bid to help us put the twinkle back into their and their families? eyes.?

Walking With The Wounded supports veterans with physical, mental or social injuries on their journey to long term security independence and employment.
