The Holt 1940s Weekend is proud to support the Walking With The Wounded charity.
In 2016, the Holt 1940s Weekend team was proud to present a cheque for £1,690 to Walking With The Wounded. The total amount raised included contributions from the Auden Theatre whose ‘We’ll Meet Again’ variety show proved a popular draw with visitors to Holt on the evening of Saturday 17th September. The members of 1st Holt Scouts were once more on duty at Gresham’s School to provide parking and accept donations on the weekend.
Since its establishment in 2010, Walking With The Wounded’s mission has been to provide independence through employment to vulnerable veterans — including those who have been physically, mentally or socially disadvantaged by their service. As a supporter of the charity, the Holt 1940s event serves as a commemoration of the hardships of our allied forces during our country’s wartime years, and a salute to the true spirit and camaraderie of the 1940s era.
