Duke of Sussex wishes WWTW A Happy 10th Birthday
Today, marks our 10th Year Anniversary, a landmark milestone for the charity.
The Duke of Sussex celebrated the 10th Anniversary of Walking With The Wounded with a very special post on the official Sussex Royal Instagram account.
In the post, the Duke said:
'Wishing a very happy 10th birthday to Walking With The Wounded (WWTW) charity, staff and everyone who has played their part in supporting injured British Armed Forces servicemen and women over the last decade!The Duke of Sussex, who has played a significant part in the impact made by WWTW, has been able to see first-hand the resilience and strength of those men and women who were injured in service to their country.
The Duke has worked hard to raise awareness over the years, including an expedition to the North Pole in 2011, trekking across the South Pole with 12 injured servicemen from the UK, the US and the Commonwealth in 2013, and joining wounded veterans for their incredible 1,000-mile walk of Britain in 2015!
Established in 2010, @SupportTheWalk has created pathways for vulnerable veterans to re-integrate back into society and keep their independence - focusing on those facing the toughest challenges since leaving the military.
Offering assistance through programmes to those who have been physically, mentally or socially disadvantaged by their service and assist them through new sustainable careers.
The outcome of the remarkable work over the past 10 years? Sustainable employment, and independence for thousands of veterans and their families.
