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:
Kyle and Luke are walking from Ipswich to Pegasus Bridge in France!
Kyle and Luke are raising funds for Walking With The Wounded by walking 286 miles from Ipswich in Suffolk to Pegasus Bridge in France. They will also be carrying 55lb bergens. (You may remember Kyle from when he ran from Warrington to Ipswich in just 5 days last year!) Find out more and support Kyle on his Just Giving page.

Chapel Street by Sheila Brady
We are very grateful to Sheila who is donating a portion of the proceeds of her book, Chapel Street to Walking With The Wounded.
Chapel Street was a row of old Georgian terraced lodging houses in Altrincham, home to some 400 Irish, English, Welsh and Italian lodgers. From this tight-knit community of just sixty houses, 161 men volunteered for the First World War. They fought in all the campaigns of the war, with 29 men killed in action and twenty dying from injuries soon after the war; more men were lost in action from Chapel Street than any other street in England. As a result, King George V called Chapel Street "the Bravest Little Street in England".
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."
