The Travelling Botafogos

Fundraising for St Luke's - Sheffield's Hospice
raised of £1,000 target
We provide dedicated care and support to Sheffield people with terminal illness


Thanks for taking the time to visit the Travelling Botafogos JustGiving page.  Mark & Rita Swales together with Richard & Helen McGloin are the Travelling Botafogos.  We all love to dance hence the name for our group!  

We will be undertaking the 198 mile Coast to Coast walk from St Bees in Cumbria to Robin Hoods Bay in North Yorkshire.  This marathon walk will take 13 days.  We have been training hard for the past 12 months.

This walk gives us the opportunity to raise funds for St Luke's Hospice which is celebrating its 50th Anniversary.   We have chosen them because they have cared for many of our close relatives and friends.  St Luke's needs to raise £7 million each year and is therefore reliant on the generosity of the public to continue its work across Sheffield and the Yorkshire Region. 

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 to the Travelling Botafogos efforts to raise money for St Luke's Hospice in Sheffield. 

About the charity

St Luke’s is an independent charity caring for terminally ill adults and their loved ones across Sheffield. Each year, we care for around 1,900 patients most of whom are cared for in their own home by our Specialist Palliative Care Community team.
