Raising money to support the rehabilitation of our wounded
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. To this end we are now holding an annual LitFest day.
As summer bursts on the scene we announce the winners of the
2017 Independent Author Book Award. Numbers and standards are flying high and we've all had a great time reading each and every one. Huge thanks to Gillian Holmes, our judge, and congratulations to everyone who entered, and a million thanks to you all for supporting those in need. click to see Results
In November we will be announcing some exciting news regarding the 2018 Independent Author Book Award competition. This is in response to the number and diversity of entries. So keep an eye on the website.
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.
  • Coming soon:
    1. Exciting news about our 2018 Writing Competition.
    2. Lovely Line-up of speakers coming together for our LitFest on April 21st 2018.
    Keep your eye on the website for updates.
