"The word bar is short for barrier? Yes, that's right—to keep the customers from getting at all the booze."
-Ian Lendle, in Alcoholica Esoterica

Jamie DevaneyHugh BurgessOur favourite vicar The Rev'd Hugh Burgess is embarking on a giant 1,500 mile charity walk from Halkyn in North Wales to Santiago de Compostela in North West Spain (he started on Sunday 28th Feb - click here to go straight to progress updates)!

Why?

It's in aid of the Halkyn based Jamie Devaney Memorial Fund for which Hugh is Chair.

Hugh will be taking 3 months to walk the 1500 miles (2400km) route and has dreamed of walking to Santiago since he was 18 years old (he's now 60) and is hoping his dream doesn't become a nightmare!

If you would like to donate to Hugh's amazing challenge you can do so here.
