OUR 2018 CHALLENGE is to WALK THE CAMINO DE SANTIAGO

 

Following the success of our previous fundraising, in 2018 we will raise funds for Dogs for Good, with walkers taking part in one of four breath taking hikes.

To give our walkers the best range of options, we have partnered with Follow The Camino, who have over ten years' experience in organising Camino trips. We are offering the choice between four distinct Camino challenges, which range in difficulty and duration.

 

TAKE ON THE CHALLENGE

Walk the Camino de Santiago with Destiny of a Child
and raise vital money for Dogs For Good

Each walker will need to cover their Camino costs
and fundraise a minimum of £1,500 for Destiny of a Child.
