Can you walk or talk with us?
Guild member, Isabel Freer (1995-1997, Beale) and her fiancé Christy Hawkins are setting out to walk from Dover to Iona (See map https://goo.gl/maps/6LtKXW5Y89P2). Further details below:
In this modern pilgrimage we aim to explore the experiences of refugees in this country and to listen to those who have arrived as well as those who have welcomed them.
We hope that by walking 1,000km through rural and urban England and across the border into Scotland we will escape ‘the bubble’ and open ourselves to the voices of a diverse range of people.
We aim to learn through personal encounters by simply listening without judgement. We will record our journey and connect the people we meet with a wide audience through our blog and on social media: www.listeningpilgrimage.org
We invite people to walk with us and share their stories. Perhaps you can help us navigate your local area or offer us shelter for the night?
