On June 2nd, four teams representing Walking With The Wounded (‘WWTW’), will climb four of the UK’s highest peaks to light beacons to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The teams will climb Scafell Pike (England), Mount Snowdon (Wales), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Slieve Donard (Northern Ireland).  Each team will be carrying a Queen’s Platinum Jubilee beacon which will be lit in tribute to Her Majesty The Queen between 9.15 pm to 9.45 pm. The WWTW teams will be led by Mountain Leaders provided by Challenge The Wild.

Each of the four peaks that are being summited by WWTW teams has been sponsored by corporate supporters. Palgrave has sponsored Scafell Pike, SeaJacks has sponsored Ben Nevis, Isadores has sponsored Mount Snowdon and Stephenson Smart has sponsored Slieve Donard.

As part of the celebrations over 1,500 beacons will be lit across the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories, and one in each capital city of the Commonwealth countries.
