Ancient pilgrimage for charity

Simon Bebbington

Back in May 2016, Simon Bebbington, an estate manager from Hanover Court in Castle Cary, undertook for charity an ancient pilgrimage in northern Spain.

Starting in the French Pyrenees, the month-long trek went across a region known as the Camino Frances. It finished at the world-famous cathedral in Santiago de Compostela in north-west Spain. Simon decided to dedicate his 485 mile trek to two charities very close to his heart, namely Help for Heroes and Macmillian Cancer Support.

Regarding Help for Heroes, Simon said: ‘The sacrifice our servicemen and women make on our behalf is incomparable. I think the least I can do is support those who have such a need from the physical and mental scars they receive.’

In choosing Macmillian Cancer Support, Simon decided to support an organisation that has helped many Hanover residents over the years.
