Funds raised from Camino events donated to High Hopes Choir



Written by Wanda

We are delighted to announce that the total sum of money raised from the 2019 Camino events was €1,178. All money is being donated to the High Hopes Choir.

Camino Events

We continue our commitment to supporting great causes through the Camino events that we organise every year. One of the biggest fundraising events organised by the company is the Camino Training walks.

On the Camino Training events, our Camino experts help people interested in walking the Camino de Santiago to train for their pilgrimage. In order to join the training participants pay a small amount which goes directly to the charity of the year.

In 2019, the funds raised from the Camino walks was donated to the organisation for a social change High Hopes Choir.

High Hopes Choir

The High Hopes Choir is an independent organisation set up by former conductor of the RTE Orchestra, David Brophy. It is aimed at improving the lives of people affected by homelessness through music.   

If someone didn’t turn up for a rehearsal we went looking for them. For the first time ever, there was an order to my life, a purpose, a sense of belonging to something, an awareness of other people’s needs.

The High Hopes Choir is supported by the staff, volunteers and customers of a wide range of homeless organisations including Focus Ireland, Dublin Simon Community, St. Vincent de Paul and Penny Dinners.

It is an honour for us here at Follow the Camino to contribute to this great cause.
