The Frontline Walk & The Virtual Frontline Walk 2021 will be sponsored by Annington.

Annington is one of the largest private landlords in the UK following the purchase of over 57,000 homes from the Ministry of Defence in 1996.  Most of these properties are leased back to the MOD and provide homes for Service personnel and their families.  A significant number, however, have been handed back to Annington.

In the years since 1996, Annington has invested time, money and expertise in regenerating thousands of these homes and returned them to the national housing stock.  To date, Annington has helped over 18,000 homebuyers, many of whom were first time buyers and key workers. 

In 2019 a team of five Annington employees completed the Frontline Walk and raised £43,000 for ABF The Soldiers' Charity. In 2020 Annington came on board as the headline sponsor of the event.
