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:
K2: Taming The Savage Mountain
"Over a decade of his life, Jake mounted three expeditions to 'The Savage Mountain' - and finally reached the summit on the 21st July 2018, fulfilling a long held ambition. Jake's inspirational story is one of perseverance, tenacity and bouncing back from failure time and time again, despite the time, effort, cost and sacrifices made along the way."
The Mfor Festival at Lydiard Park in Swindon is officially back on for 2019 and raising vital funds for Walking With The Wounded + others! Join us on 27 July 2019 at one of the most beautiful parks in the whole of the UK for a fun-packed, family friendly festival. Find out more at www.mforfestival.co.uk
Schools publisher Gresham Books are publishing a brand new anthology of poems and reflections from the First World War to bring home the horrors of the ‘war to end all wars’. Featuring the best known poets as well as the voices of the ordinary soldier, the conscientious objector, the frightened, shell-shocked and bereaved, NEVER AGAIN will help today’s generations identify with and connect to the brave men and women who sacrificed so much 100 years ago.
5% of proceeds will go to support the work of Walking With The Wounded.
Thames Path Challenge
Over 30 employees from Activision's UK 'Ditton Park' office will be participating in the ThamesPath Challenge on September 8th, covering a variety of distances from 10, 25, 50 and 100km. Their goal is to raise awareness and generate donations for Walking With The Wounded as part of one of the Endowment's charitable trustees.
We wish them the best of luck!
Team CarDashians (Rosanna, Anna, Miles and David) will be driving from the UK to Ulan Ude, Siberia, this July. Their journey should take approximately 7 weeks and they will be covering the distance of around 10,000 miles in their VW car that has a 1.2 litre engine. Their planned route is to go through Iran and up through the Stans (picking up Anna en-route in Uzbekistan). They'll be driving almost everyday to ensure that they reach the finishing line in Ulan Ude, just north of Mongolia. Who knows what challenges they could face. whilst striving to support our wounded veterans..
Baz Wall is supporting Walk Of America
Baz Wall has successfully completed his 'tabathon' - 16x 3.5 mile walks carrying 44lbs of weight!
"I want to support John Mayhead in his journey as he is my old Company Commander from my Coldstream days. My motivation was lacking and when I read John’s story I wanted to support him. I hoped that by showing John I was out there it would let him know that we were thinking of him. I have been doing it since John started the walk of America and have decided that in July I would like to raise as much as I can."
Well done, Baz!
Kyle and Luke successfully walked from Ipswich to Pegasus Bridge in France!

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."
