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.

COXLESS CREW PACIFIC OCEAN ROW 2015

Fundraisers: 
Laura Penhaul, Meg Dyos, team Coxless Crew, Isabel Burnham, Natalia Cohen, Lizanne van Vuuren

My page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/coxlesscrew

We're a World Record setting team of 6 women who have recently become the first ever female crew and the first 4s boat to row the Pacific Ocean.  We set off from San Francisco California in April 2015 and after a total of 257 days at sea arrived in Cairns, Australia on 25 January 2016. We rowed the Pacific to support those women that have had to cross their own Pacifics by facing adversity and overcominglife changing events, which is why we are raising money for the women of Walking With The Wounded and Breast Cancer Care. Thank you so much for your support. Laura, Natalia, Emma, Izzy, Lizanne and Meg x
