Walking With The Wounded

Back in December I decided to take up the challenge of joining a walk along the North Norfolk coast as part of The Walking With The Wounded campaign Walking Home For Christmas.

Mrs D and I joined a group who had organised the 'Mince Pie Walk' route, not expecting to know anyone, only to be surprised as family we knew through Holt RFC were also taking part. Not only did we have a great time, walked 15 miles but also raised some money for such a worthy cause. Walking With The Wounded's Mission Statement is: To support all veterans with physical, mental or social injury to gain the skills and qualifications necessary to develop new careers outside the military, re-integrate into society and provide long-term security for themselves and their families.
