Walk of Britain at Hever Castle

October 21 2015 | What's on

The Walk of Britain will be finishing their days walk at Hever Castle on Wednesday 28th October.

The Walk of Britain expedition has seen six wounded veterans walk over 1,000 miles through mainland UK throughout August, September and October this year. The walk has engaged with local communities and the media every day to highlight the extraordinary determination of our wounded personnel and to raise awareness of the work that Walking With The Wounded (WWTW) is doing across the country to support the affected service men and women back into independence through long term employment.

The core team of four British wounded veterans and two US wounded have been joined by other injured personnel each week in different parts of the country. The wounded service personnel all have either physical or cognitive injuries sustained in the line of duty.

The walk started on 22nd August in Scotland and will finish in London on the 1st November, going via the North East, North West, Wales, Midlands, South West, South East and East Anglia, finishing on The Mall and at Buckingham Palace.

Prince Harry has supported Walking With The Wounded since the charity was formed and been its expedition patron, taking part in the trek to the North Pole in 2011, South Pole in 2013 and supporting the Everest Expedition in 2012.

Walking With The Wounded (WWTW) was established in 2010 to raise funds to support veterans with physical, mental or social injuries on their journey to long-term security, independence and  employment.
