Our success is down to our supporters and we are extremely grateful and humbled by the extraordinary efforts that so many are making on our behalf. Support that enables our veterans to achieve successful employment in new trades and careers, including among others, Electricians, Plumbers, Teachers, Nurses, Landscape Gardeners, Prosthetic Specialists, Equine Therapists and Dog Handlers. We really could not function without you and your hard work makes all the difference to the wounded men and women who have already given so much.

‘Swishing’ means swapping an item or items of clothing, shoes or accessories with friends or acquaintances. Many people across the world hold swishing parties to raise funds for charity, and now is your chance to raise much needed funds for Walking With The Wounded.
Run your own Tug of War event or set it up within a larger community event such as a summer fete or school sports day
Create your own auction of promises fundraising event. You can as local businesses to contribute promises or auction lots for your event and then create an event around the auction such as a lunch, dinner or drinks evening.
How about organising a charity event, to raise much needed funds for WWTW, involving our four legged friends? There is a long history of dogs in warfare, going back to ancient times, but more recently dogs have been successfully trained as scouts, sentries and trackers. Their uses have been varied and some continue to be used in the military to this day.
Whether buying or selling – everyone loves a car boot sale – and if you are worried about the English weather (not always helpful when it comes to organising outdoor events), then how about organising an indoor table top sale instead?!
