We'll be 'Walking Home for Christmas' this year!

On Friday 20th December, we will be taking part in Walking for the Wounded’s, Walking Home for Christmas Campaign to support ex-military who are alone this Christmas.

Walkiing Home for ChristmasThe Marathon Des Sables is known as the 'toughest footrace on earth' and involves running 6 marathons in 6 days across the Sahara Desert. 

It's an event that requires determination, mental strength and teamwork to succeed.

Our moulder, John, is doing this both as a challenge to himself, and also in aid of Walking for the Wounded, a charity that supports a pathway for vulnerable veterans to re-integrate back into society after leaving the Armed Forces. 

As a tribute to John’s determination and commitment to this enormous challenge, Plunkett Associates will be sponsoring John and supporting his fundraising efforts in various ways.  

On Friday 20th December, we will be taking part in Walking for the Wounded’s, Walking Home for Christmas Campaign to support ex-military who are alone this Christmas. 

We will be walking around our local area, visiting business’s, dressed in our festive finest, (with Santa hats of course!), delivering mince pies, sharing John’s story (and a little bit of Christmas cheer) and in return asking for donations to our fundraising campaign. 

We’d love it if you would like to join in and organise your own Walk - or support us! 

We have a Company donation page: Plunkett Associates are Walking Home for Christmas

and John has his own Just Giving Page: John’s Story & Just Giving Page Walking with the Wounded

If you are able to donate, however small, we would all be very grateful. (All donations will go to Walking for the Wounded).

To finish off the day, we will be celebrating our efforts when we get back to the office, with Christmas lunch (and more mince pies) – can’t wait!

Merry Christmas to you all… and thank you x
