Mastercard - SALUTE UK

At Location: Cumbrian Challenge 2022

We are supporting our wounded. Are you with us?

We're members of Mastercard's UK veteran's network - SALUTE -  and are taking on the Cumbrian Challenge on 14 May 2022 to support ex-military personnel. 

It's a big day taking on a big walking route (9 peaks, 26km and a 1732m ascent) around the Lake District alongside teams of veterans who are getting their lives back on track thanks to Walking With The Wounded. 

Our ask is quite simple. Please dig deep, or sign up a team to take us on. 

Why? We're the lucky ones with jobs, families, homes. Most people leave the military without any issue, but for a small minority it isn't so easy. 

Walking With The Wounded (WWTW) support ex-military who are struggling with their mental health, who are hard to reach, socially isolated, homeless, in police custody... men and women with little to look forward to but who want to get back into society and employment – which is at the heart of what WWTW do. Mike, Lee and Ben served in the British Army and Fiona is in the Army reserve, and all four are part of the SALUTE network within Mastercard.

Please help our team hit our £2k target. Every £988 we raise could fund a course of therapy, giving a veteran the tools to support their mental health needs now and in the future. Starting within 4 days of referral - imagine that.

Thank you so much in advance for your support.

Yours aye,

Ben, Mike, Fiona and Lee

Thank you to our Sponsors

Be sure to pack Twix, Snickers and Mars bars. One bar per Kilometre. Consider including some slices of greasy cold Hawaiian Pizza and a 2ltr bottle of Fanta for energy. Hope all goes well and you have some sherbets after. “What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.” —Pericles of Athens, 495-429 B.C
