Trek the Camino Way for Age Action
Camino Trek 2013
Join us on the Camino de Santiago trip from September 19 to 26, 2013, for an unforgettable experience while making a real difference to the lives of older people.
If the Camino de Santiago has been on your ‘Bucket List’ list for a while, this is an opportunity to experience it, while raising vital funds for our Care & Repair Service.
The Camino de Santiago (the Way of St. James) is a large network of ancient pilgrim routes stretching across Europe and coming together at the tomb of St. James in Santiago de Compostela in north-west Spain. Tens of thousands of pilgrims make their way to Santiago de Compostela each year for a variety of reasons including. Some do it for religious reasons, many for the spiritual adventure or just for the personal and physical challenge.
We will be following the French Way, the route featured in the movie ‘The Way’ starring Martin Sheen and the most popular of all the Camino routes. Starting in Sarria, you will be amazed at the ever changing landscape, thefriendliness of other pilgrims greeting you with ‘Buen Camino’, the amazing variety of food in each town and the intense sense of achievement (and relief) you experience when you reach the iconic building of Santiago de Compostela Cathedral to attend the pilgrim Mass.
Whatever your reasons for taking part you can be sure that you are joining a great group of people who are raising much needed funds to enable older people to remain in their own homes for as long as they wish.
Places are limited so to avoid disappointment register soon.
