Rachel’s 3 month hike


A photograph of two people holding up a sign that says "Well Done Rachel" and a woman standing underneath it with her arms raised.Rachel has just finished her epic 3-month hike around the Welsh coastline, walking over 1050 miles. Along her way she was sometimes joined by friends, family and even WRC staff.


“This wonderful organisation supports people who have travelled from unstable homes, by much more uncertain journeys and set up new homes in Wales – a Nation of Sanctuary.”


Rachel raised over £6,800!


Mari, Emyr and Elin hike equivalent of Mt. Everest

“The three of us feel strongly that Wales should be a nation that welcomes refugees and supports them in every way possible and we admire the work you do to make that possible.”


Their goal was to raise £500 but through their commitment and the generosity of their supporters, they raised over £1500!
