Lord Benyon

The Right Honorable Lord Richard Benyon served in the Army for four years with the Royal Green Jackets, including a tour of Northern Ireland, and served as a Member of Parliament for Newbury from 2005 to 2019 before entering the House of Lords in early 2021.

His time in Parliament included serving as a member of the Intelligence and Security Committee, the Defence Sub-Committee, Environmental Audit Committee and as the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. 

“As someone who served in the Army some time ago I have shared so many people’s desperate concern for those who have emerged from recent conflicts with life changing injuries or on-going mental health problems.

In so much of our world people just talk about problems. Walking With The Wounded is a charity that does things. It does good things for people in real need. It not only helps people to whom we owe a lifelong debt of gratitude, it transforms their lives and reminds us of the extraordinary power of the human spirit.

I am honoured to be asked to be an ambassador for WWTW.”
