1st Annual SVP Ozanam Centre Pilgrim's Walk

On 31st March, 9 intrepid volunteers set off to retrace the steps of thousands of Pilgrims, who crossed North Wales to pray and reflect on Bardsey Island. The Island is situated at the end of the Llyn Peninsula and is known as the Island of 20,000 Saints. The pilgrims often set off with the intention or hope of dying on the island. Thankfully on this occasion the party all arrived safely and in good health! rnrnThe group set out to raise funds for the SVP Ozanam Centre which provides holiday accommodation for people with limited opportunities. Although not the final amount raised has not yet been finalised, the total raised was in the region of £5000. The group would like to thank all those who sponsored them on the walk. The route covered a distance of approximately 38 miles in total. rnrnFor more information on the Ozanam Centre or the work of the SVP in England & Wales please visit http://www.ozanamcentre.org or http://www.svp.org.uk
