Updated 18 June 2018 – We’ve done it!
CAFOD have confirmed that the “Share the Journey” campaign completed its 24900 mile challenge in June’18. The response has been phenomenal and the feedback so positive that they are continuing the campaign and looking to go around the globe again.
So keep walking in solidarity with our refugee brothers and sisters who need our prayers and support.
