This Christmas, Christian Aid Cymru will walk from Bethlehem in Carmarthenshire to Aifft (Egypt) in Denbighshire in solidarity with the more than 65 million refugees in our world today.
It will be a sponsored walk, with donations going towards the work Christian Aid does to fight poverty generally, which includes vital work in supporting refugees in many parts of the world.
The charity is inviting people to join the walk – either for the whole journey or for specific legs – and help it draw attention to the world’s refugee crisis and raise funds for Christian Aid’s work. Those not able to join the walk are asked to sponsor the event.
Along the way there will be a variety of events held within the communities on the route.
Sunday, December 4: Bethlehem, Carmarthenshire – Rhydedwin (near Talley)
Monday, December 5: Rhydedwin – Lampeter
Tuesday, December 6: Lampeter – Blaenpennal
Wednesday December 7: Blaenpennal – Aberystwyth
Thursday, December 8: Aberystywth – Ynyslas (The journey will then continue to North Wales through Aberdyfi.)
