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.

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 outside Barrow Town Hall with a period of silent witnes
