Special Walks

Camino de Santiago

Camino de Alba is a recent addition to the Camino de Santiago from Javea to Almansa in 12 (easy) stages. The total walk length provides the justification for an official Camino de Santiago pilgrim stamp.

We planning to complete the 12 stages at intervals during October 2017 - May 2018, collecting official Camino de Santiago stamps at each stage.

We would ask Members to sponsor us and the money raised will be donated between ‘Make a Smile’ charity, which is our donated Charity for 2017 and the Charity for 2018 (chosen by the Committee).
Please come to the Travel Team desk at the next General Meeting if you wish to sponsor us.  We thank you in advance.
