• Teams from across Yodel’s Delivery Network are taking part in Walking Home For Christmas
  • Yodel has organised 2 colleague walks; one on December 19th at their Head Office in Liverpool and another at their Hatfield site in Hertfordshire

Yodel has been a steadfast supporter of Walking With The Wounded, consistently raising substantial funds over the years to support those who have served. This December, teams from different branches of the company will be participating in various walks nationwide. Their collective efforts are dedicated to raising funds for Walking With The Wounded’s Walking Home For Christmas campaign, further demonstrating Yodel’s ongoing commitment to supporting the veteran community.

Commenting on the Walking Home For Christmas challenge, John Hardman said, “At Yodel, we have actively participated in various Walking With The Wounded campaigns and events to raise money to support veterans and their families. This year, teams from across Yodel will be donning their Christmas hats and taking on Walking Home For Christmas. This is a great team-building event, and we are looking forward to stepping out in support of Walking With The Wounded once more.”

Now entering its 10th year, “Walking Home For Christmas” stands as Walking With The Wounded’s annual festive fundraising initiative. Over the past decade, this campaign has collectively raised nearly £2 million to bolster veterans and their families through programs encompassing mental health support, employment opportunities, and care coordination services.

Walking Home For Christmas encourages the public to get out of their comfort zones and embark on a meaningful walk to show their support for Britain’s veterans. The campaign takes place from Saturday, December 9th, to Wednesday, December 20th. This challenge offers an ideal opportunity to beat the winter blues, get out into the fresh air with family, friends and workmates and raise money for a worthwhile cause.

Walkers from previous years have dedicated their walks to loved ones who have been in or have fallen serving our country, have walked to a war memorial, run errands for friends and family or supported their local community.

The campaign invites anyone to register for free, raise a minimum of £5.00 and receive a branded Santa hat and do a sponsored walk home, somewhere important to them anytime between 9th -20th December. Head to www.walkinghomeforchristmas.com to find out more.
