Friends For A Uk Cenacolo Community

Helps those who have suffered from addictions and also other young people who have become disillusioned or dissatisfied with their lives.

Story

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page.I made it all the way to Santiago De Compostela ( about 90 miles ) much of it in wind and rain. The sun however shone as we walked wearily into the Cathedral Square and our tiredness melted away as we raised our eyes to the soaring towers of one of the most splendid  buildings in Europe. I knew then that it had all been worth it.I dedicated this walk to my late brother Father Hughwho died from cancer earlier this year. Hugh was a great supporter of a small charity "Cenacolo" which gives help and support to young people who are and have suffered from some form of addiction. It aims  help them to lead independent lives and to acquire skills and self esteem. It has a remarkable success rate. Over several years Hugh had supported 'Cenacolo' and thought very highly of its work.They are hoping to convert a barn into workshops and need money urgently to re-roof and make the building watertight. Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It's also the most efficient way to sponsor me: 'Friends For A UK Cenacolo Community' gets your money faster and, if you're a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.      FOR THOSE WHO HAVE ALREADY SPONSORED ME VIA THIS WEBSITE OR BY CHEQUE, PLEASE ACCEPT BY HEARTFELT THANKS. .............TO THOSE STILL THINKING ABOUT IT, PLEASE SUPPORT THIS EXCELLENT CAUSE .

So please sponsor me now! You can make donations until 2 December 2008 but the sooner you do donate the sooner 'Cenacolo' will receive the funds to help them with their development; the money is sent as it is received.
