Charities and Causes
Walking With the Wounded
Brocket Gear are proud to support Walking With The Wounded. Adam, Josh and Paul have a close affinity to the charity having served in the military. They know first hand the effects of serious injury on friends and colleagues. Brocket Gear recognise the amazing work the charity does and share the ethos of team work, challenge and humility. Please see information below.
Walking With The Wounded was set up in 2010 to support all veterans with physical, mental or social injury back into work by gaining 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.
The primary focus is employment although the charity’s programmes also target key issues facing veterans such as homelessness, veterans in police custody and mental injury.
In conjunction with individual fundraising events, Walking With The Wounded promotes awareness of the charity, our wounded community and the challenges faced by all those living with disability by undertaking high-profile expeditions with wounded veterans and serving soldiers that are entirely funded by corporate sponsorship. In 2015 we are undertaking our next expedition, building on those to the North Pole (2011), Mount Everest (2012) and the South Pole (2013). Corporate sponsorships allow private donations such as yours to go exclusively towards the work we do helping support our wounded veterans.
At a time when so many charities are asking for people's generosity, we are hugely grateful for any donations which are made, fundraising activities undertaken or partnerships offered.
