Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I have been deeply affected by news reports of the suffering of refugees escaping war and persecution. I have also been planning a personal pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. Well why not combine the two?

I am funding the cost of the pilgrimage myself so all your money will go directly to refugee relief efforts organised by CAFOD.

I will be walking from Ferrol on the northern Atlantic coast of Spain to arrive at Santiago before the 24th September. The walk is about 120km (75 miles). Due to the nature of the pilgrimage I will get a certificate from the cathedral in Santiago confirming that I have completed the journey on foot, so no chance of cheating.

So far I've completed a practice walk and I'm sharing this page through local churches.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
