On Sunday 19th May I will be walking from Belfast, Northern Ireland to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. The route will take me down to Dublin, alongside the canal system in England, down the GR 36 in France, then I will finish it off by walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain. I will be doing this walk of over 1500 miles to raise money for a fantastic charity called Share Tanzania.
I personally found about Share Tanzania 4 years ago through the charity's founder, John St Julie. His YouTube channel really helped me on a personal level and has helped me do things I didn't think I'd ever do (like this walk)
Share Tanzania provides full time care and housing for 22 special needs children and 40 able bodied children to date. They help over 600 children in the local community with school fees and food. They also have a home for street involved children and house over 50 rescue dogs.
The money I raise will go towards building more accommodation for children with special needs. This housing will be vital for bringing more children into the care of the charity and protecting them from abuse and witch doctors.
All the amazing work done so far by the charity has come through donations from people seeing them on social media. I hope to raise more awareness for John and his team who do such a fantastic job.
