LONDON, April 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Norfolk based Big Prawn Company is proud to be the Official Nutritional Sponsor of Walking With the Wounded, a world record expedition to the Geographical North Pole, departing on April 1st, 2011 and headed up by WWTW Patron Prince Henry (Harry) of Wales.
Amongst this group will be military servicemen who have been wounded in the line of duty and have subsequently lost limbs to amputation or been equally incapacitated by their injuries. They now seek to rebuild their lives, to inspire and to help others follow their lead as they set out to prove that injuries and amputations need not be a barrier to endeavour and achievement.
Big Prawn Chairman, Sean O'Hanlon comments, "We are extremely proud to be sponsors of this incredibly courageous group of men who, despite huge physical challenges, are testing themselves once again by walking to the North Pole to raise awareness and money for this extremely worthwhile cause."
Big Prawn Company's sustainably sourced, nutritious Seafood Cocktail and Breakers snack pots can be kept chilled for up to 21 days and so are ideal for snacking-on-the-go on long trips, or indeed, as O'Hanlon comments, "snacking in the snow!"

About Walking With The Wounded
Walking with the Wounded will feature four-wounded servicemen trek unsupported to the Geographic North Pole. The aim is to successfully reach the Geographic North Pole whilst raising money to fund projects that will make a difference to the lives of wounded servicemen and women. The adventurers will take 4 weeks to cover over 300km (250 miles) of frozen Arctic Ocean (temperatures will range from -15C to -50C) to reach to the North Pole and each will be pulling weights in excess of 100kg in sleds. http://www.walkingwiththewounded.org.uk
