Beadle takes up Fundraising Challenge for Unicef

Shaun James, the Musicians’ Company’s Beadle, will be walking the Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage to raise money for Unicef, the world’s leading children’s organisation.

All the funds raised will support Unicef’s work to protect children in danger, transform their lives and build a safer world for tomorrow’s children. Unicef works in 190 countries and ensures more of the world’s children are fed, vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation.

Shaun is following one of the world’s most renowned pilgrimage routes that attracts thousands of people from all corners of the world to walk. The ‘Way of St. James’ is a network of pilgrims’ ways leading to the shrine of the apostle Saint James the Great in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain, where he hopes to arrive on Easter Monday.

Shaun has chosen to walk the famous Camino route to gain the Compostela certificate of accomplishment in memory of his late father, William James, and to support Unicef who transform the lives of vulnerable children around the world.
