WALKING EL CAMINO DE SANTIAGO
A Fundraiser for the International National Trusts Organization
Bill Turner has always said that there is no magic to fundraising – it just requires a lot of plain hard work. On September 15th to 19th Bill is about to take his commitment to new lengths (quite literally).
Along with his partner Gerie and a number of members of the executive of the International National Trusts Organization (INTO), Bill will be celebrating his 70th birthday by walking a portion of the renowned El Camino in Spain (a World Heritage Site), to help raise funds to support the work of INTO.
Starting in the port of Ferrol on the northern coast of Galicia the INTO team will walk for 5 days and 120 km to Santiago de Compostela – a portion of El Camino known as the Camino Ingles (English Way). The team will include Simon Molesworth from Australia, Oliver Maurice and Catherine Leonard from England, and Emily Drani and John de Coninck from Uganda. They will be meeting with many local officials, heritage groups and supporters along the way, to raise awareness about the importance of natural and heritage conservation around the world, as well as raising funds.
During his walk, Bill will be sending updates about his and the team’s progress, that will be posted on this page. Please check back regularly for updates.
