Mark and Nancy Reilly are going to walk the El Camino de San Diego de Compostella.
They will start on April 7th at St Jean Pied de Port (the traditional starting point) and finish by June 7, 2017 at the Church of St. James of Compostela.
The distance is 750.5 kilometers/488 miles.
Mark and Nancy are doing this to raise money for The Nestling Trust, the charity co-founded by their friend of many years, Sue Hamblin.
The main project of the Nestling Trust is to build a group home (not an orphanage) for 20 children in Sarangkot, Nepal.
This home is going to provide protection and hope to destitute and abused children in a country where human trafficking is rife.
Just $5 (£4.00) would be enough to buy 1 blanket for a child's bed.
Mark and Nancy hope to raise £1000.

A sensational evening, over a hundred people watched TV Chef, Peter Vaughan give a demonstration of Nepalese cuisine and were served a fabulous three course Nepalese feast. Devizes Sports Club was transformed into a typical Himalayan Lodge restaurant bedecked with hundreds of prayer flags. Fiddington Hill Nurseries again supplied small trees and ferns giving a sense of the outdoors.
As guests arrived a silk skarf was placed around their neck - a traditional Nepalese gesture of welcome, they were able to enjoy cultural music and were later entertained by a Gurkhar Piper who played Nepalese bagpipes to herald the start of the first and main courses.
The food was authentic and delicious - the evening was a huge success.

Thank you to everyone who supported our first fund raising event, the Nepalese Supper Evening on 23rd November ’13. It was a huge success with over £14,000 being raised towards the building of a home for destitute and abused children of Nepal. Our goal is also to provide health care in remote villages lacking in any medical facility.
The evening could not have happened without the army of willing helpers. From the cooking of unfamiliar recipes to the erecting and laying of tables whilst miles of prayer flags were swept skywards, everyone’s enthusiasm was tangible. So to those people and to all the people who came along that evening, and to those people who were not able to attend but have still supported us, I would like to say a very sincere thank you. The response has been overwhelming and we are immensely grateful. A strong link has been formed between the Himalayan community of Sarangkot, where the home will be built, and our own community here in Wiltshire.
