St Teresa in Princes Risborough is hoping to establish a regular parish walking group as a way of bringing the community together. On Friday 27 April, a group got together and having heard about Share the Journey, decided to do their walk in solidarity with refugees and migrants and to have their miles added to the totaliser.
One of the walkers said, “Although the forecast was not optimistic, 15 walkers optimistically set off for a 5 mile walk through the Chiltern fields and hills. It did not rain the whole time and along the way we were able to appreciate the bluebells and cowslips which were in full bloom. Despite some difficulties with muddy paths which resulted in a last-minute change of route (and an additional mile!), we all managed to arrive at the Black Horse in Lacey Green at the same time and were ready for our pub lunch. Due to the heavy rain, the return to the car park to collect our cars was something of a route march and there was just time for a quick prayer and photo before returning home to dry out. In all we each covered a route of 6 miles, totalling 90 miles towards the Share the Journey target.”
Well done to all who participated on the walk in solidarity with refugees and migrants. By walking you have sent a powerful message to world leaders that they too need to step up and protect the rights of people on the move.
