After 35 years working in the hotel industry and following a period of mental illness, I have decided to walk the Camino de Santiago starting in the French Pyrenees onto Santiago de Compostela, and finishing at Finistierre on the Atlantic Coast of Spain, a total of 558 miles. The opportunity has arisen for me to walk the whole of the Camino rather than just the originally planned 2 weeks. Inn Churches and One In A Million have been close to my heart for a number of years and I would ask friends and colleagues around the city if they could contribute in someway for one or both of these charities. On a personal note Juli Thompson CEO of Inn Churches, Wayne Jacobs CEO and Craig McHugh Director of One In A Million have been friends for a long time and all 3 have given unconditional support and friendship to me over the last 3 years when I needed it. I hope that I can raise some much needed funds for both organisations that are dedicated to the people of Bradford. The proceeds will be split 50-50.
I've created this page because I want to make a difference.
I'm inspired by the work of Inn Churches and One In A Million and wanted to support them by raising money.
One In A Million is a Bradford based charity that engages predominantly with disadvantaged children and young people, through Sports, the Arts and Enterprise. Our ‘Hub and Spoke’ model enables us to use formal and informal education as a delivery mechanism to break the cycles of deprivation over their young lives, valuing and celebrating their uniqueness, and letting them know they are ‘one in a million’.
