Frances Hillier is a former Link Global Teacher and staff member who worked for us in Malawi. In 2004, she embarked on a truly unique and personal fundraising challenge, setting out to walk the famous Christian pilgrimage route known as the Camino Francés.
Over a period of eight years, Frances has walked over 1,500km on several visits, from Central France, over the Pyrenees and to the town of Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain. From tricky mountain ascents to scorching sun, it has been a truly remarkable adventure.
