Hospice Champion embarks on the North Wales Pilgrims Way

We would like to wish good luck to our Hospice Champion Mathew Baines as he embarks on the North Wales pilgrims way tomorrow 4th July.

Mathew said the following about why he chose this challenge and St Kentigern Hospice: “Bob Baines, my dad, passed away peacefully whilst in the care of St. Kentigern Hospice. They provided a sanctuary of peace and respite when we needed it most, and I will forever be thankful for the compassionate and attentive care they gave to Dad.”

“St. Kentigern Hospice is a charity that provides palliative care and familial support. Their support has been invaluable to us as a family. Therefore in thanks, I will be completing a fundraising walk of 134 miles along the Pilgrims Way across North Wales. I hope to raise £10 for each mile I walk along the trek, for a total of £1,340. Please can you help support the work of St Kents through donating in Memory of Bob.”

“The Pilgrims’ Way spans 134 miles of paths across North Wales. Beginning in Holywell, the trail winds through the Clwydian AONB, before crossing the Conwy Valley, then into Snowdonia before finally culminating at the very tip of the Llŷn Peninsula. This endpoint in Aberdaron holds special significance for me, as it was the last place me and dad went adventuring together—a fitting destination for this trek!”

Mathew is aiming to complete this incredible journey by the 17th July which means he will have to walk an average of 10 miles a day, Mathew will have the support of his friends and family at stages during this incredible journey.
