On 3rd October 2019, Paul Littlewood and Marie Littlewood will walk the final stages of the Camino Frances from Sarria to Santiago; a journey made by pilgrims across Europe to pay homage to St James the Great at the Cathedral at Santiago de Compostela. The final stage begins at Sarria 113km east of Santiago and will take a total of 6 walking days.
On completion, a Compostela Certificate awaits those who complete, as a minimum, the final 100km. This involves carrying a document called the Credencial, which is stamped with the official St James Stamp at each town or refuge at which the pilgrim has stayed and is proof to the Pilgrim’s Office in Santiago that the journey was accomplished according to the official route and enables the pilgrim to receive the Compostela Certificate.
Why are we doing the final Stages of the Camino Frances for Macmillan?
Macmillan was Marpal’s charity of choice and particularly fitting. Both Paul and Marie have lost close family members to cancer and during 2018, two members of the Marpal Team were diagnosed with cancer, since then, both have received treatment and are on the road to recovery;
Cancer is a truly cruel disease! Cancer effects almost everyone either directly or indirectly and Macmillian Cancer Support are there to provide the emotional, physical and financial support for people living with cancer. Without the support of volunteers and fundraisers, the charity simply cannot provide the amazing help and assistance that’s needed.
Marpal want to raise as much money as possible! What Macmillan do, makes a huge difference to the quality of support provided and research needed!
