Steve Howarth and Dave Coupe, two members of the Portobello Walking Football Team based in Campoverde, will be walking the Camino De Santiago De Compostela next month to raise money for their two nominated charities, the A.E.C.C, (Cancer Charity) and The Amigos De San Jose De Orbrero Children’s Orphanage Orihuela).

Despite only recently we handed over 1,000 euros to the two charities, Steve and Dave will now be stepping out on the thousand kilometre pilgrimage starting at San Juan Pied de Port in France to Muxia on the Atlantic coast of Spain.
