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.

It's been two years since we raised money for Help 4 Heroes walking 20 miles along Hadrians Wall.  We thought we'd try and take on a less crippling challenge this year (Helen's foot still isn't right after that pesky hike) by walking 10 miles to raise money for Walking for the Wounded this Christmas. 

On 17 December, Helen and Elaine will be starting their walk in Loughborough Town Centre at approximately 11am walking through Hathern and Sutton Bonington to The Gallery (stopping for a quick cuppa and a slice of cake), then head off back through Sutton Bonington to Loughborough.

It's not about the amount of miles walked, it's about pulling together and trying to raise money and awareness for our injured servicemen and women around the country that have put their life on the line to protect others.

Jack Davies (brother/nephew to Elaine and Helen), lost his life back in 2013 after suffering life threatening injuries in Afghan.  He was truly an inspiration to others and will always be remembered for his love, banter and cheeky smile.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
