OUR 2018 CHALLENGE WAs to WALK THE CAMINO DE SANTIAGO

 

Following the success of our previous fundraising, in 2018 we raised 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 partnered with Follow The Camino, who have over ten years' experience in organising Camino trips. We offered the choice between four distinct Camino challenges, which ranged in difficulty and duration.

 

Registration for the 2018 challenge has now closed

How can you explain that you need to know that the trees are still there, and the hills and the sky? Anyone knows they are. How can you say it is time your pulse responded to another rhythm, the rhythm of the day and the season instead of the hour and the minute? No, you cannot explain. So you walk.
