What is the best way to help raise money for a church dedicated to a patron saint of pilgrims? Perhaps a sponsored walk to the ancient pilgrim destination of Santiago de Compostela.
DAC Secretary Adam Klups is fundraising for conservation work to the unique wall paintings at the church of St James the Great in Stoke Orchard. Joining Adam is Liz Kitch, Oxford DAC Secretary. They will start in the Spanish city of Ferrol, along the Camino Ingles, (‘The English Way’) and the walk will take six days, finishing on Easter Sunday.
Adam will appear on Richard Atkins’ Sunday morning show this Sunday 16 February to talk about the Stoke Orchard project, his walk and looking after church buildings, especially before and after severe weather phenomena.
He said, “It will be an amazing adventure to add my footsteps to those of the pilgrims who have made the journey over the centuries before me.”
