Share the Journey – Darlington

Marjory Knowles,  a member of St Augustine’s Parish in Darlington, is currently ShareJourneyskernebridge2018organising walks to raise miles for the Share the Journey campaign. We held our first walk on Saturday 21st April. 11 of us walked 5 miles , a total of 55 miles, and another walk is planned for Bank Holiday Monday 7th May. One parishioner has just walked 130 klms on the Camino Sainte Jacques  de  Compostello and did this as part of our ‘solidarity walks’. I am meeting with the Head Teacher of St Augustine’s and the Chaplain at Carmel  College to include the schools.

If you would like to join-in with the walk on 7 May then please get in touch with us at the Hexham and Newcastle Volunteer Centre and we can arrange for Marjory to contact you. You may want to organise your own Share the Journey Walk. Let us know your plans.
