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 couple of the wonderful fundraisers who have gone out of their way to raise money for our wounded.
Robert Taylor donated £1,000 to sit behind Rick at the Nottingham Concert on Sunday 13th December. Rick Allen is the one armed drummer with Def Leppard and chose to donate the funds to Walking With The Wounded. Rick has his own charity in the US, Raven Drum federation, but wanted the donation to stay in the UK. We would like to thank both Rick and Robert for such a generous donation.
A handful of generous Walking With The Wounded volunteers and Project Nova staff braved the rain to collect outside the Premier League relegation clash between Norwich City and Sunderland AFC at Carrow Road last weekend, thanks to an opportunity through the Norwich City Community Sports Foundation to mark Armed Forces Day.
Despite the bad weather and early kick off, Canaries and Sunderland fans kindly found our buckets and donated £752.57 in the hour before the game.
If you were at the game, or watching live on BT Sport, the wearer of the red WWTW top in the Armed Forces guard of honour for the teams was Rod Eldridge, clinical lead for our mental health programme, Head Start, and former Lieutenant Colonel.
WWTW’s HQ is based just outside Norwich and we have programmes in Newcastle and Catterick so we wish both teams well with their fight against relegation.
