Holy Land Sponsored Walk

In February 2018, we conducted our 4th McCabe Educational Trust Sponsored Walk as part of an eight day subsidised Holy Land pilgrimage. One hundred participants took part, all of whom commit to raising funds for projects supported by The McCabe Educational Trust.

This is a bi-annual event and each time we vary the programme to keep it interesting with the emphasis on visiting the projects we support. This pilgrimage is an inexpensive way for supporters to travel to the Holy land and meet the people benefitting from MET grants.


All monies raised were distributed among projects supported by the McCabe Educational Trust. You could choose to raise funds specifically for a favoured project or allow our trustees to allocate funds according to need.

Location & Participation

Our 4th walk was multi location, beginning in Jerusalem, then a desert walk, a Galilee trail, and ending in the Huleh Valley nature reserve. Walkers of all abilities (and none!) were accommodated with the emphasis, as always, on fellowship.

Participants included McCabe Pilgrimages staff, MET trustees, regular travellers and Trust supporters, and this was the ideal opportunity, if you have not travelled with McCabe before, to have seen what we do. We give a warm welcome to travellers coming on their own.

We intend our time together to be a time of fellowship and fun, and an inspiring week in the Holy Land.
