Louise completes her Pilgrimage walk to Santiago de Compostello in aid of ASSIST

Louise Grosberg has walked from Porto to Santiago de Compostello, raising well over £5,000 for ASSIST in the process.

Here’s what she said before the walk…

“I am a Methodist Minister and every 7 years we are blessed with a sabbatical. I have wanted to take this pilgrimage for a little while. This sabbatical therefore is an ideal opportunity. I am walking with an amazing friend of mine Ju Sommers. No doubt we will have a few adventures on the way! It is a privilege to be able to take a pilgrimage but I am only to aware of so many people throughout the world who over the last years have had to flee from the place they called home. So I am simply hoping through this walk, to support brothers and sisters who have found themselves as refugees in Sheffield, being helped by ASSIST, and this will hopefully just help in a small way as they try to settle and work through the red tape.”

Louise has met her £5K target but it’s not too late to add to her total. Visit her JustGiving page and sponsor her!

FROM EVERYONE AT ASSIST, THANK YOU LOUISE. We’re very glad to hear you arrived safely.
