COVID19 UPDATE

We're continuing to monitor the easing of lockdown across Europe before making any final decisions regarding our Camino plans.  We are preparing as normal for our 1st October 2020 start date, but are wary conditions out of our control may impact us.  We expect to make a final call by late August 2020, in the meantime, stay safe & keep hoping for brighter days. Love the pilgrims family. x

TIM'S STORY

On 19 July 2009 Tim was involved in a road traffic accident which left him wheelchair bound.

 

He broke his neck between C6-7, requiring 2 metal rings joined by rods to hold his head on.

 

He also broke a further 9 vertebrae, some ribs, punctured both lungs, broke his sternum and smashed his pelvis. 

At that moment his life changed forever. 

Now a Tetraplegic, Tim lived the rest of his life in a wheelchair.
