Launching the Jerusalem Trinity Sponsored Walk

A WEEK IN THE HOLYLAND   26 January – 2 February 2012


Our aim is to Raise awareness and funds for three McCabe Educational Trust supported projects. In one memorable week, you will meet the people behind these projects and participate in a sponsored walk raising much needed funds on their behalf. Anyone with an interest in our work will be made very welcome.

Our featured projects are: 

* The Jeel Al Amal Boys Home in Bethany
The Al Shurooq Blind School in Bethlehem
The Bethlehem Arab Society for Rehabilitation

We invite YOU to come and join us! 
The cost of this tour is a heavily subsidised £650 plus minimum sponsorship of £300. Included are flights, accommodation, meals and a programme of visits focusing in particular on the three projects we are raising funds for.
Participants already signed up include Trustees of our charity, staff of McCabe Pilgrimages and, in Jerusalem, members of the Albina family and the owner of the Golden Walls hotel. We are looking forward to a memorable event.

Our theme is Trinity and our walk will take us three times around the walled old city of Jerusalem. Total distance about seven miles. Everyone can take the walk at their own pace and we envisage the walk lasting between three and five hours. You will be given an official sponsorship form for you to collect support. All of the money raised will go to the projects we will visit during our week in the Holy Land. None of it will be used for administration or travel costs.

We have produced a detailed brochure which can be downloaded below. The document however is large and we would prefer to post you details. If you think your church may be interested we can send you a batch of brochures.

Anyone with an interest in our work will be made very welcome. 

For more than twenty years, The McCabe Educational Trust has been creating partnerships with inspiring people we have met on pilgrimage. A special thank you to McCabe pilgrims who helped us raise £18,538 during February. A total of £47,298 so far this year!
