The very popular Camino De Santiago is the destination for one of the most exciting fundraisers run by ISPCC Childline this year. Why not tick another trip off the bucket list and raise awareness and vital funds for Childline this September?

The Camino walk itself is perhaps the most famous walk in the world. Although the Camino is a large network of pilgrim routes, many undertake the walk for a number of other reasons including a chance to view the local scenery and an opportunity for peace and solace. The French Way, which the ISPCC will be walking, is the most popular of the routes of the Way of St James and features in many documentaries, books and movies, including Martin Sheen’s The Way.

And walking the Camino is for a very good cause! The ISPCC is Ireland’s national child protection charity.

Minister for Training, Skills and Innovation John Halligan T.D. has said there is ‘absolutely no question’ of emergency cardiac services ceasing at University Hospital Waterford pending a national review of all primary PCI services.

“The suggestion that all emergency cardiac services at University Hospital Waterford would cease pending a national review – a suggestion which has caused a great deal of upset and worry amongst people in Waterford – is absolutely false.”
