Prince Harry Joins Walking With The Wounded’s Walk Of Britain

Prince Harry

Those seeking veteran employment at this time will no doubt be cheered to see just how much support Prince Harry offers former military personnel.

The Prince has just joined in with the Walk of Britain, organised by Walking with the Wounded, a charity that aims to raise funds for the retraining and education of those who have been wounded while in service, while also offering a support network for all those who have been injured – no matter when that injury took place.

This year’s Walk of Britain has seen six wounded veterans, four from Britain and two from the US, set out to walk 1,000 miles over mainland Britain. They began in August in Scotland and will be finishing their hike at Buckingham Palace on November 1st.

And now, according to the Daily Telegraph, Prince Harry has joined in with those doing the walk, going part of the way with them through Ludlow in Shropshire.

“You just have to chat to these guys for five minutes to appreciate what they can still contribute. What's important is to recognise that the mental health support for these guys, former servicemen and women is there. They have served their country. They have put their lives on the line for their country,” he was quoted as saying.

If you want to donate to this very worthy cause, you can easily do so via the group’s Virgin Money Giving page. So far, they have managed to raise £6,080 out of a target of £20,000 and people are being invited to buy a mile for £10, £20, £50 or £100.
