Walking the Camino

Good luck to Brian Payne, pictured here with his sister, Jenny, at the village fete. He is heading off today to St Jean de Pierre Port to walk the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. He starts on Sept 1st and estimates it will take around 33 days, so there’ll be no T’ai Chi in the church for a while! He’s fundraising on behalf of Rowcroft in memory of his wife, Helen, who died last year. Brian says, “I can remember Helen whilst meditating on the way. This is something I have always wanted to do and we were going to do it together and so we shall, but she will be above as we walk along. She had Spanish ancestors, which makes it more poignant. She would have spent her final days at Rowcroft hospice and was a great supporter of its cause. This was not to be, but she would have loved to have known that we are contributing to keep this wonderful place of peace and love going.” If you’d like to support Brian and Rowcroft, visit his JustGiving page.
