The ‘Walk of Britain’ team visited Keswick last week, as part of their 1,000 mile expedition between Scotland and England. The aim of the walk, is to help raise money and awareness for Walking with the Wounded, a charity set up to retrain and re-skill the wounded and support them in finding new careers outside the Military.
The four British veterans, Stewart Hill, Scott Ransley, Alec Robotham & Matt Fisher and the two US veterans, Andrew Bement and Kirstie Ennis are now on day 32 of the walk and commented, “We were overwhelmed by the support in Keswick which provided the best turn out yet with over 1000 people lining the streets. This really makes a huge difference to the morale of the team and to the fundraising for the charity, and the stay at the Inn on the Square, donated to us, was a real treat! Huge thanks to all involved for making us feel so welcome. Please do continue to follow the expedition and to support if you can. Thank you to all again!”
