Harley and Lauren, are going to trek the Camino de Santiago in aid of Help for Heroes and Trinity Hospice. For their gap years, Lauren is residing between Chichester and Germany and Harley in Cyprus.

Harley and Lauren said: “We have just graduated from Rossall School in Lancashire, and both decided to take gap years, Lauren residing between Chichester and Germany and Harley in Cyprus.#

!Initially, our gap years were a way for us to take time away from education to plan for our futures. However, we have decided that we would like to make our gap years count; therefore in April we will be trekking Camino de Santiago. We have chosen to support two charities that are both very close to home for us. The first one is Help for Heroes.

“Harley chose this charity because both he and his father are members of the British armed forces, as well as Lauren and Harley both having been in the Cadet Force at school. The second charity is Trinity Hospice; a charity which looks after terminally ill patients. Lauren has chosen this charity in honour of a close family friend and her Grandmother who were both treated there. We are going to plan the trek on a sponsored basis; that means the more that is donated, the longer we walk for.”
