UNICEF are pushing a new ‘My Fundraise 50’ challenge. I have already set my goal but for their ‘fundraise 50’ I have introduced a bonus in the hope some of you will donate.
The deal is the first 50 people to donate £50.00 will be given a signed limited edition print from the journey on my return. These images will hopefully be used to publish a large coffee table styled photographic journal of my pilgrimage, with 75% of the profits going to UNICEF.
The way of St. James is one of the three largest Christian pilgrimages of the world. I intend to walk one of the many routes which begins in le Puy en Velay, France. The route has been trodden by many weary souls, looking for answers, looking for adventure, for the obvious religious reasons, or just walked for the sake of it.
I first came across the route about 6 years ago whilst reading Paulo Coelho’s ‘The Pilgrimage’, I decided maybe something could be learnt from spending so much time on the road in solitude.
Being the kind of person that lives to work, these ideas were put on hold whilst my life moved steadily forward. Recently I’ve found myself longing for adventure and decided it was time to begin planning. Another thing I decided was if I was going to do this, I may as well try and raise money for charity along the way.
So the story begins...

To everyone who is reading Tom’s blog and who can…….DONATE. It’s the way to make all the effort and time Tom has put into this walk worth while. And it keeps it all in perspective for his abandon girlfriend that it’s all for the bigger picture. Make a difference people.
