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:
Tribute to The Rat Pack - 22nd September 2017
Valerie is hosting 'Tribute to the Rat Pack' - a charity evening at the King's Lynn Corn Exchange on Friday 22nd September. The Jonathan Wyatt Big Band celebrate their 30th Anniversary swinging into action with their tribute to The Rat Pack. The talented vocalists sing the songs made famous by Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Junior and the legendary Frank Sinatra. Come and enjoy the evenings celebrations, with special guest: Duncan Slater, the first a double below knee amputee to ski to the South Pole with Prince Harry as part of their 2013 South Pole expedition. Duncan is also the first double leg amputee to complete the Marathon des Sables in April 2017 completing 6 marathons in 6 days in the Sahara dessert. A night not to be missed.

Kyle ran from Warrington to Ipswich in just 5 days!
Kyle, a former serviceman from Ipswich who has been supported by Walking With The Wounded's programmes, ran from Warrington to Ipswich for our wounded ex-servicemen and women. He's completed the 210 mile journey in just 5 days! He's raised over £4,000 so far, and the figure is still going. You can still support Kyle here.
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.
