Without all of our amazing fundraisers we wouldn’t be able to support vulnerable veterans. To highlight your hard work we are sharing your events and expeditions each Friday to say thank you! Here are a few of the wonderful events you have organised in the past few months:
Elmden Rovers Football Club
An enthusiastic group of young footballers swapped their soccer boots for walking shoes to complete a seafront sponsored walk for WWTW. Players, coaches and parents from Elmden Rovers Football Club walked from pier to pier on Saturday – starting in Clacton and finishing in Walton and have raised well over £1,000.
Club Vice-Chairman Matt Birch comments: “We wanted to help raise awareness for this charity, which doesn’t have the profile of some others, but does such important work. It was a chilly morning but well worth it to raise so much money for a good cause. It was good for community spirit and also a good team building exercise for the children to take part in.”
Abbots Bromley School
Sixth form pupils from Abbots Bromley School in Staffordshire have recently raised £1,274.95 for Walking With The Wounded – the girls held various cake sales and opened a tuck shop to raise funds. Mrs Victoria Hawley, Head of the Sixth Form, commented “The girls wholeheartedly support the ethos of Walking With The Wounded and were delighted to help raise funds for our ex-servicemen and women”.
