Sean Henry has recently returned from walking 116km from Sarria to Compestella raising £900 for Epilepsy Research UK.
Sean says, “Walking from Sarria to Compestella over five days was definitely no walk in the park, it was much harder than I expected; my feet could confirm that statement! However, it was an amazing experience. I walked between 17 and 23 miles per day. Meeting people from many different places on the globe all who greeted each other with the words Buen Camino (the famous greeting shared between those walking the Camino, literally meaning ‘Good Path’), hearing passers by shouting as well as laughing with their aches and pains and also the great silence experienced whilst walking alone. It was truly magnificent and well worth the blisters.
On reaching the city of St James I received my longed for certificate showing that I had indeed walked 116km.
Along with being a wonderful experience, I have managed to raise £1,800 in sponsorship for my two charities. The sponsorship was split equally between the two. People were indeed generous in their giving.
Epilepsy Research UK in honor of my sister, Michelle, who has been living with epilepsy for several years now and works hard herself to raise money for epilepsy charities and The Manchester Oratory church of St Chad. I was proud to represent these two charities.”
We thank Sean for his fantastic support.
