As SharingPoint does not receive ongoing government funding, we rely on fundraising and donations to allow to offer our services. One of our annual fundraising events is a trip on the Camino de Santiago.
This year 15 energic supporters completed the last leg of the French Way – 115km from Sarria to Santiago.
Here are some comments from some of those who completed the trip…The French Camino was an exceptionally amazing experience!! I walked along the way and shared stories with different people, exchanged a few conversations with complete strangers and also walked on my own taking time to reflect on my personal life journey. It was so well organised so I could relax and be present what helped to experience a deeper connection within myself, with other people and stunning surroundings. The Way of St. James is like a mini version of Life as we all are those pilgrims searching for more and walking the Way…
My experience of the Sharing Point Camino was a very positive one. It was a shared experience with a group of lovely people, some I already knew and others I met for the first time, but who all got along. I enjoyed time walking on my own and reflecting on challenges I had going on in my life but equally enjoyed the laughs and fun moments we had when walking in a group. I found myself very emotional on our arrival into Santiago both because I had achieved my personal challenge to complete this section of the Camino and also because I appreciated the love and support that I had felt from the group and had enjoyed the friendships that had been formed by us all sharing this lovely experience.
