The Friends of The PWRR
The Friends of the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment (PWRR) has been set up to raise money for the Benevolent Fund and help those soldiers who face life altering circumstances as a result of serving our country.
Over the last 12 years The PWRR has seen continuous action in Iraq and Afghanistan and is one of the the most decorated infantry Regiments in the British Army. We have among our number one of only two serving recipients of the Victoria Cross – Sgt Johnson Beharry –as well as many others who have been recognised for their bravery.
However, this high tempo of operations takes its toll and we have many who have been injured on the front line or who are displaying signs of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, the biggest mental health issue faced by UK veterans.
The Friends of the PWRR fundraises throughout the year enabling the Regiment to provide ongoing support to our soldiers and their families. Whether this is access to medical treatment, rehabilitation, assistance with day to day tasks or guidance to help with their transition back in to civilian life, The Friends ensure that our soldiers have access to the correct advice when they need it most.
