Welcome to Words for the Wounded!
Words for the Wounded raises money via writing prizes, events and donation to help wounded servicemen and women. Every penny is important, and every penny we raise goes to where it should, because the organisers, (the three grannies) absorb all expenses.
Our principal fundraising plank continues to be writing prizes and we consider our aim is to encourage aspiring writers as well as raising money.
The Grannies who founded and run Words for the Wounded are delighted that so many Independent authors entered our various categories for this year's Georgina Hawtrey-Woore Award for Independent Authors. The subjects were exciting, the standard higher than ever.
The judging for the 2018 Award is complete and results can be viewed here.
Plans are already afoot for the next award, which will open as usual on 11th November 2018 and news of this will be on the website in due course.
Thank you all for your support. We have just this week been able to help with respite care, with the purchase of a specially adapted bike.
Week by week the work of Words for the Wounded continues, helped by all of you.
We do hope that you will continue to support us as you have been doing. As you know the grannies are all volunteers and, we repeat, every penny raised goes to the cause. Also, as you may know, the average age of those with life changing injuries is 25 which means that they have long lives to live and they deserve the best.
We can all help them to achieve their full potential, and lead confident and independent lives and it is the least we can do.
