So many generous people have raised money for Walking With The Wounded through an event or by taking on a challenge and in doing so helped improve the lives of our wounded ex-servicemen and women. Do remember to send us photographs – we love to be able to showcase the amazing things our extraordinary fundraisers do to support our wounded. Thank you all for your contributions.
Here are just a few of our recent fundraisers:
Mark Carruthers single: Born To Fight
We are very grateful to Mark Carruthers who was keen to write a song about the plight that some veterans find themselves in after leaving the forces and after writing the song , Born to Fight he has now teamed up with Walking With The Wounded, dedicating proceeds of his new single to the charity.
Mark said “I saw the good work, Walking With The Wounded do when I joined them for some fundraising challenges they ran in Cumbria and especially liked how they got beneficiaries of the charity to help, give talks and be involved in the events. If my song can raise a bit more awareness and raise some funds for the ones that need it then I’ll be happy”
BBC introducing. "Love Mark's sound! Definitely reminiscent of a young Paul McCartney."

Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th of September was the third annual Holt 1940s Weekend. A huge celebration of the style, culture and character of the wartime era. The event-packed two days was a wonderful way to celebrate the wartime efforts of the allied forces and the remarkable resilience shown by those who dealt with the hardships on the home front.
Held in conjunction with Sheringham’s sister 1940s event and in support of Walking With The Wounded which raised £2,385.00 for the charity as well as donations to 1st Holt Scouts (North East Norfolk District) and WHYFY (With Holt Youth for You), which is a small group of teenagers involved in helping and volunteering in Holt.
Duncan completed the New Forest Marathon on 10th September 2017...despite torrential rain!
After leaving the Army, Duncan received support from our Home Straight programme which aims to secure positive employment outcomes for unemployed veterans.This year, in order to support Walking With The Wounded's ex-servicemen and women regain their much deserved independence, Duncan ran the New Forest Marathon on 10th September 2017. He and his teammates completed the epic 26 miles carrying 35lb weights in their rucksacks and running in their hiking boots...which got even heavier as the rain continued to pour. Together they've raised over £2,500. You can support Duncan and the team here.
