Leprosy Mission is raising funds this year for Purulia Hospital, India, which treats around 74 000 people from West Bengal. Leprosy sufferers are Purulia’s special focus, but other vulnerable sections of society are welcomed and treated there too, for a range of illnesses. The main fundraising effort for this appeal is the sponsored walks arranged in South, Mid and North Wales respectively.
Sioned and Fiona joined the ‘South Wales’ walk, which started at the Brecon Beacons National Park Visitor Centre and involved a six mile round trip to the valley of Cwm Camlais
People from churches all around South Wales took part, and we soon got into friendly, informal chatting as we walked!
The views were stunning and the rain mostly held off. A cup of tea and home made cake at the Visitor Centre cafe afterward was the best you can imagine.
Thanks to Pat Howells for publicising the walk in our news sheet.
Sponsorship / Donations to Leprosy Missions are always welcomed.
