Our chair of Governors, Andrew Cole KSG, completed his Camino pilgrimage from Tui on the Portuguese border to the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela. He embarked on his Camino to help raise money towards completing a sports hall at the College and to raise awareness of the campaign. Mr Cole commented: “It was one of the best eperiences of my life. I met lots of very interesting people on the way who were walking for many different reasons. Some of the days were long and hard but the camaraderie of fellow pilgrims and the ‘buen Caminos’ from local people sustained me and my walking partner, John Slade, over the 145 kilometers we covered over six days. I prayed for our College community at every stopover and during a wonderful pilgrim’s Mass at Santiago de Compostela at the end of the pligrimage. Lots of people asked about St Richard Reynolds and some even donated to the appeal. I can’t thank people enough for the many messages of support and encouragment and for all the gernous donations. With Gift Aid, £26,300 has been raised so far and I hope people will go the extra yard to help exceed the target of £25,000 towards the cost of the sports hall”.
