Camino de Santiago

I am raising money for research into oesophageal cancer following the death from the disease of Gary McLean.

My Story

In September/October I am walking part of the Camino de Santiago - from St Jean Pied de Port to Belorado. I will be accompanied by a group of girlfriends. We are planning to be ‘very pilgrim’ so we will carry our bags and stay mainly in dormitory style accommodation. We will walk on average 24km a day. We will walk for 11 days. I am not suggesting that this is a super-human challenge but I have been very touched by the untimely death of Gary McLean and thought I could use the trip as an opportunity to raise money for a worthwhile cause.


Oesophageal cancer

Oesophageal cancer rates are rising in the UK, and it's one of the hardest cancers to treat. It’s the sixth most common cause of cancer death and survival rates are poor. Help fund one of Cancer Research UK's top priorities – finding ways to improve survival from the disease.
