Sponsored Walk - Portugal

We completed a really superb walk this month: 80 kilometres of wild, beautiful countryside in the Alentego east of Lisbon near the Spanish border. Walkers (as above) were: Trustees Mark and Peter Hudson and Gregory Kronsten, walker stalwart Emily Naper from Ireland, and sprightly newcomer Caroline Ayleward. Magnificent fortified towns were visited amidst the empty cork and oak-forested Alentego plains high above which, in the beautiful mountain-top home of Nuno Ruis and Helena Borges where we were kindly hosted, the walk was completed after three and a half days. Funds raised exceed £6000. A tremendous effort from all: alkers and sponsors alike. Next up: fourth section of The Big Walkthis September from Garsdale in Yorkshire to Presteigne, Powys.
