On his return from Spain and after many weeks of collecting all the money from his generous sponsors, the grand total including the amount reclaimed through Gift Aid, stands at £2189.75 Michael writes as follows:
GRACIAS to the people from my parish of Blessed John Henry Newman in Leeds, my Friends and Family, the members of the Leeds C.H.A. Rambling and Social Club, my fellow Spanish class Students and everybody else who so generously sponsored me.
£2189.75 was raised. This is going to buy sacks of beans and sacks of flour for elderly ladies who have absolutely nothing, zip, zilch, nada in one of the poorest areas in the world.
In the words of the great Irish comedian Dave Allen
“May your God go with you”.
“I’ve completed walks across Spain many times but this year was tougher than most,” said Mick. “Every penny raised helped me get up each morning to complete the walk”
We would all like to thank everyone who supported Mick and most of all thank Mick for his most generous efforts.
Thank you Michael!
