I will be walking 500 miles along the Camino De Santiago to raise money for the work I am going to do in Cape Town

by Sarah Hopkins in La Rioja, Spain

In January I will be moving to Cape Town for 2-3 years to work in the Cape Flats. Life on the Cape Flats is tough with lots of violence, drug abuse and gang crime. Offering one to one and group therapy sessions I hope to help people break free from the traumas that are holding them down and help them grow. To give them a chance to be able to learn and develop into healthy, strong individuals.

I will also be using my sewing skills and getting alongside the women and teaching them how to sew, so they can make items to sell and earn an income.

But before I go I am spending a month embarking on a 500 mile pilgrims walk through Spain to have a chance to reflect on life and to raise some funds for helping me go. I leave on 26th September and will spend 31 days walking the route so that's 15-20 miles a day!
