Anam Cara, a national organisation supporting bereaved parents, is inviting members of the public to join its fundraising Camino walk in Spain in May.
The charity holds face to face meetings in Donegal every month.
On Thursday, March 9, it will hold its monthly meeting in The Radisson Hotel, Letterkenny at 7:15pm.
All bereaved parents are welcome, regardless of the age of the child or circumstances of death. Any bereaved parents in the Donegal and surrounding area are welcome to attend.
Every parent present has many things in common, however the most significant being, the loss of a child.
Taking that first step to attend a meeting, in many cases, can be the toughest. But every bereaved parent who attends, has made that first step.
There is no time limit on how long a bereaved parent can attend – their child may have died a month ago, a year ago or several years ago, all are welcome.
There will be a big Spanish welcome this May when supporters of Anam Cara take on a section of the Camino de Santiago.
On the 21st May, the group will depart Dublin for warmer climates and walk the spectacular Sarria to Santiago leg of this world famous route.
Grants and Fundraising Manager of Anam Cara, Jamie Conway said “I am thrilled to be travelling with the group to take part in this once in a lifetime experience. The journey will take us across woodlands, farmlands and rustic hamlets, whilst following tracks and paths lined by granite stone walls”.
He advised that there are still a couple of places left for this seven day trip. If you are interested in raising much needed funds and joining the group, please contact Jamie on 01 4045378.
