Walking With The Wounded
Walking With The Wounded (WWTW) was established in 2010 to raise funds to finance the re-training of wounded servicemen and women and in so doing assist them in acquiring the skills and qualifications necessary to find new careers outside the military. Our ability to fundraise effectively ensures we can finance new qualifications, courses and further education through our First Steps Bursary Scheme as well as via organisations and projects; such as The Warrior Programme and The Poppy Factory. This enables the blind, the burn victims, the mentally injured, the amputees and all the other wounded to rebuild their lives and return to the work place and in so doing provide long-term security for themselves and their families. In conjunction with individual fundraising events, Walking With The Wounded also promotes awareness of the charity, our wounded community and the challenges faced by all those living with disability by undertaking high profile expeditions with wounded veterans and serving soldiers that are generously funded by corporate donors. These corporate sponsorships allow private donations such as yours to go exclusively towards the work we do helping re-educate and retrain our injured veterans. Following the success of our previous expeditions to the North Pole in 2011 and Mount Everest in 2012, this year’s expedition, the South Pole Allied Challenge, is our most ambitious yet, and involves three teams of wounded servicemen and women from the United Kingdom, the United States and the Commonwealth embarking on a race to the Geographic South Pole this December. At a time when so many charities are asking for people's generosity, we are hugely grateful for any donations which are made. Please follow our build up to the expedition at www.walkingwiththewounded.co.uk Many thanks for your support.

Hi, thank you for visiting my page.  

In April 2017 I will be taking on the gruelling Marathon des Sables which consists of six marathons in six days across the Sahara desert, covering over 250km, in temperatures rising to 50 degrees.  The rules require me to be totally self-sufficient, so I have to carry everything I need to survive on my back except for water.  

I am taking on this challenge to prove that a double amputee can do it (I will be the first double leg amputee to attempt the MDS) and to raise vital funds for Walking With The Wounded.

All funds raised will be go to WWTW's Head Start programme which provides ex-servicemen and women who experience mental health difficulties with a military front door to access effective and evidence based therapeutic support.  The programme works in collaboration with the NHS and other charities to compliment the existing provision.

Every penny counts so please do sponsor me to support those who need WWTW's help!
