Camino Girls raised 2,150€ for Us


The “Camino Girls” are seen presenting a cheque for 2,150€, the proceeds of their sponsored walk, to Joan and Jacky from the Quesada Branch of Help at Home Costa Blanca. They were joined by their 2 main sponsors, Mark Vincent from Vincent Real Estate and Clive Smith from Smart Currency Exchange.

The “Camino Girls”, Joan Bennett, Karen Palmer & Heather Meston walked the 116K walk from Sarria to Santiago, which is part of the St James Pilgrimage (Camino de Campostela), as part of their “bucket wish list”. They said it was an amazing experience especially the scenery, spiritual uplifting and the comradery of other pilgrims from all countries who they met on the way.
The girls said that it was not all a bed of roses – blisters, sore feet, aching legs but when asked if they would do it again they said “you bet!!” They are already planning to walk another section next year. After getting their “passport” stamped twice a day along the Way, on reaching Santiago they went to the office and received their certificates, which they say is a real honour.

Joan, Karen & Heather would like to thank everyone who donated so generously enabling them to exceed their target of 1,000€ by 100% and the charity, Help at Home Costa Blanca would like to congratulate them on their achievement and thank “the girls” for their kind generosity.
