Alan Gandy leaving Barlovento for Santa Cruz de La Palma

Alan Gandy is walking the length of all seven Canary Islands for charity, and he’s currently on La Palma. Yesterday he walked from Santa Cruz to Fuencaliente, and today he’s walking from Barlovento to Santa Cruz. That’s about 39 km altogether.

All procedes to two charities, Niños del Tercer Mundo – a charity based on the island which funds projects in the third world, and the Rose Road Association – based in the UK, who provide services to severely disabled children and their families. You can read more on Alan’s blog  and Facebook page. If you’re impressed, you can donate here.
