Walking for the wounded.

Last Thursday, everyone at Open left work on time for once to celebrate the year at our Christmas party, held nearby at the London Fields Brewery.

 

Given the location, a group of us decided to save on the cab fare and enjoyed a somewhat bracing 30-minute walk along the canal.

 

Sure, it was pitch black at times and yes, some speedy cyclists might well have deserved to end up in the less than fresh water – but two-by-two and not quite hand-in-hand, we all made it.

 

Of course, the amount of bravery required to dodge a few two-wheeled plonkers after dark is nothing compared to the courage shown every day by our wonderful servicemen and women – which is why many of us donated our cab fares to Walking with the Wounded.

 

They work to support wounded military personnel, helping them retrain, re-skill and find new careers. You can learn more about them and what they do here.

 

So not only did our pre-party jaunt prove to be a great start to a great night – it was made all the better by doing a little bit of good.

 

Merry Christmas everyone!
