Walking with the Wounded: Walk of Britain Day 5

We were greeted on day 5 with an absolutely amazing turnout in Heddon-on-the-Wall. We were with the incredibly hospitable Sharon – the owner of Dingle Dell Cafe (who can be seen in the photos wearing a union jack apron). Sharon had contacted Walking with the Wounded when she saw the Walk of Britain announced and had invited them to have a cup of tea with her, so today’s route was planned specifically to take it in. In fact, she was the very first person to get in touch after the launch!

The team were treated to the most incredible send off from the children from Heddon-on-the-Wall St Andrew’s Primary School. The children sang for the team – leaving not a dry eye in the house – and then formed a guard of honour as they set off for the day’s walk, following the old Military Road and Hadrian’s Wall.

If you’re inspired by the team you can support them with a donation. If you see the team while they’re walking, please drop something in their buckets. You can also donate online through Virgin Money Giving or ‘Buy a Mile’ of the walk.
