Our Patron


“I am so proud to be Patron of Walking with The Wounded. This extraordinary expedition will raise awareness of the debt that this Country owes to those it sends off to fight – only for them to return wounded and scarred, physically and emotionally. The debt extends beyond immediate medical care and short-term rehabilitation. These men and women have given so much. We must recognise their sacrifice, be thankful and, so far as we can ever, repay them for it.

This polar adventure will exemplify the tenacity and remarkable courage of those who serve in uniform. The vision behind Walking with The Wounded – to reintegrate wounded servicemen and women successfully back into civilian life – recognises the unquenchable spirit and drive of these young people. It aims to harness their determination and energy, whilst adjusting their mindset to face the numerous challenges that lie ahead.

Walking with The Wounded promises to be remarkable. I salute the Team and I urge everyone to support them.”
