In September 2015, HRH Prince Harry visited Ludlow as part of a 1000 mile journey to raise awareness of the work of the charity Walking With The Wounded.
The Prince is the patron of the charity which, in its own words, is:
A military charity for ex-military in the UK, supports a pathway for disadvantaged veterans to re-integrate back into society and sustain their independence. At the heart of this journey is employment.
Joining a six strong team of injured former soldiers (five men and a woman, including two ex-US Marines) the Prince walked with them on some of their 1000 mile walk – which covered the length of the country – to raise awareness of those ex service personnel who are ‘battling to overcome grievous injuries, both physical and mental, suffered in the line of duty’.
Prince Harry said:
“People up and down the country will get to see first-hand the determination and resolve of those who have served, and in particular those who have been injured or suffer hidden wounds.”
