Former Hangaroa woman Christina Campbell, a mid-wife, has approximately 250km to go in her epic 960-kilometre trek across northern Spain, raising money for midwifery work in Ethiopia for the Hamlin Fistula Trust NZ.

She has been walking the Camino de Santiago (Way of St James), an ancient pilgrimage route which has been followed since 812 AD.

“It is certainly a challenging trail with extreme weather conditions and varied terrain, definitely is not a walk in the park,” Christina said. “But I am enjoying the challenges and experiences.”

So far she has raised about $4000.

“I am overwhelmed with the donations and I am still hoping to reach $20,000.”
