Thanks and Congratulations to Martin on Walking the Camino for GROW

Posted on


Heartfelt congratulations are extended to Martin Veale, a member of Dungarvan GROW Group for his fantastic endeavours in walking the Camino and raising some €2,500 for GROW.

Martin spent 37 days walking the Camino and to mark his remarkable achievement, the Dungarvan GROW took him out for a celebratory meal on August 21st in the Park Hotel in Dungarvan.Martin pic

During the meal, Martin revisited his Camino adventure – the high temperatures and his struggles with tiredness and cramps. He also spoke about the fun he had doing the walk, the meals he received in hostels and how basic they were.

He also recounted how he never pre-booked a hostel, just turning up and hoping for the best. Thankfully, he always managed to find a place to rest before continuing his journey the following morning.

As one GROW member emphasised: “We would like to say how proud we are of your Martin from everyone in GROW”.

Thank you to Danielle for the lovely photos.
