On 3rd May 2010 CAFOD walkers set of from Bolsterstone village across the breath taking Ewden Valley with the aim of raising £4000 for those in desperate need of clean water around the world. The annual CAFOD and Christian Aid May Day trek provided a great opportunity for families and communities to walk and fundraise together. Walkers challenged themselves on 5, 10 and 15 mile walks and raised vital funds to those most in need suffering from drought and the effects of Climate Change. Despite the hail storms and strong winds, it was a fantastic day out having been inspired by the words of the blessing by Bishop John to walk in solidarity
What made the walk so special was the huge contribution so many CAFOD volunteers made marshalling the whole route, grin and bearing the bad weather
If you have been inspired by thoughts of saving lives through the simple acts of walking why not sign up now for next years walk to take place on 2nd May 2011and start raising sponsorship.
