Gareth Thomas has started his 2000km walk to Santiago de Compostela. He describes himself as follows in his blog:
Following long and careful discernment, I gave up my job as a teacher in Canterbury last year to explore the question of vocation. I’m still waiting on the Lord to see what He intends for me now. I know the surest way to make God laugh is to tell him your plans… so I’ll speak no more about my hopes! Just now, the only part of my future that is planned is the walk to Compostela, and I am doing that as a Catholic pilgrimage of faith to the shrine of St James the Apostle. If, while walking, I can use my good health and energy to raise funds for Whizz-Kidz, that is a privilege, and I’ve set an ambitious target of £10,000. Help me realize that please. Follow the blog and watch my progress: pass it on to others, and please, of your charity dig deep. May God give you His blessing.
Gareth walks for charity and is hoping to collect 10 000 pounds for disabled children and young people in the UK.
Buen camino Gareth!
