We are honoured to welcome six wounded veterans as they undertake a 1,000-mile Walk of Britain 2015 to raise awareness and funds for Walking With the Wounded.
Having set off on in north Scotland on 22nd August and climbed Ben Nevis on Day 3, they are due to reach the Market Square in Shrewsbury at about 4pm on Monday 28th September.
We look forward to welcoming them to Shrewsbury School shortly afterwards, where they will be resting for the night.
We are also thrilled that there will be a chance for pupils, staff and members of the local community to come and hear the Walk of Britain team talk about their experiences and the work of Walking With the Wounded at 7.30pm on Monday 28th September in the Ashton Theatre.
There is no charge for admission, but there will be a collection afterwards for Walking With the Wounded.
Space in the Aston Theatre is limited, so please reserve your free tickets in advance by contacting Juliet Young, Operations & Events Organiser on 01743 280812 or firstname.lastname@example.org
“Walking over 1,000 miles is no mean feat. Yet again, we will be able to demonstrate that despite injuries these men and women look to their future with great determination and courage. We are also very excited about walking amongst the communities who have been so supportive of the military and Walking With The Wounded and we look forward to them coming out to support the team on their journey.” Edward Parker, Co-founder and CEO of Walking With The Wounded
