Story

Richie was tragically taken from us at the age of 37 just before New Year. Leaving behind a devastated family including two young children. He was an active serviceman before leaving the RAF only a short time ago and undertook several tours protecting this country. The charity ‘Walking with the Wounded’ supported Richie immensely whilst he reintegrated into civilian life and as such the charity was very close to his heart. 

Richie’s funeral will be taking place on Tuesday 21st January at 2pm at Sunderland Crematorium, Hylton Road, Sunderland. The family would also like to invite everyone back to the Millview Social Club in Fulwell to celebrate Richie’s life.


A bit about ‘Walking with the Wounded’: 

Established in 2010, Walking With The Wounded supports a pathway for vulnerable veterans to re-integrate back into society and sustain their independence. At the heart of this journey is employment.

We recognise the inherent skills of our armed service personnel and want to complement these qualities, as well as provide support to transfer their skills into the civilian workplace. We offer assistance through our programmes to those vulnerable veterans who have been physically, mentally or socially disadvantaged by their service and assist them in sustaining their independence through new sustainable careers outside of the military.

Thank you so much for your support and your donation through JustGiving.
