From Peter Martin: “I have completed my St James Way Walk. I walked 574 miles, from St Jean Pied de Port to Santiago and on to Lands End Lighthouse in Finisterre, 25 August to 8 October 2017. I have raised £2837.50 online and a total of £3308.50 offline, making a total of £6146 so far for Zoe’s Baby Hospice. The walk, the people I met from all over the world, and the places and sights I have seen have been an experience of my lifetime.The donations made by you wonderful people have far surpassed my expectations.
