Barrow Pilgrimage

Easter 2017

Monday 10th to Thursday 13th April 2017

Quakers in Kendal and Sedbergh Area Meeting are concerned that recent changes to the welfare state are deeply wounding to the very fabric of our community and are hitting those who are the most vulnerable in our society.

This challenges our belief in equality, peace and social justice.

We welcome you to walk with us:

• As a sign of our common humanity and our solidarity

with the poorest and most vulnerable.

• To support our belief in an inclusive society in which all

are considered of equal worth.

• To show support for our welfare system.

• To show willingness to pay a level of taxation that will support

the care and dignity of all.

Our journey will take us from Sedbergh via Kendal, Rookhow and Ulverston, with accommodation arranged en route. Our walk will end at Barrow Tax Office with a period of silent witness and a symbolic offering of money for the Welfare State. We will make a collection for this where we walk and stay.

Contact us Sally 07939569559 or Andy on 07815547292 or email [email protected] if you wish to join us for all or part of the walk, or

if you can offer space to sleep, or refreshments, or transport for those less able to walk the 15 – 20 miles each day. Leave your phone number if no reply.
