Augie has decided to walk the Camino de Santiago between July 24 – 1 August, which takes in part of the Portuguese coastal Camino route.
The route stretches 126 km, starting at Baiona and ending at Santiago de Compostela. peaking to Shaun Thomas (HPCA, Communications) she mentioned that: “Working within the hospice sector for the past 12 years, I have experienced the work hospice staff give to their patients and what is required in a hospice environment. It is amazing to see the passion and compassion hospice staff show towards their patients and families”
As the national charity for hospice care, HPCA (Hospice Palliative Care Association of South Africa) champion and support the work of more than 107-member organisations, which provide hospice care to around 120 000 people across South Africa each year. The public’s support helps HPCA to ensure they deliver the highest quality of care, and your donation towards this fundraising initiative can make sure that their vital services in future is sustained.
Dr. Liz Gwyther, CEO of the HPCA, is in full support of the initiative and encourages public to show their support towards Augie’s Camino. By supporting Augie and HPCA you will also be supporting people nationwide who are facing life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses.

Our mission is to promote quality in life, dignity in death and support in bereavement for all living with a life-threatening illness by supporting member hospices and partner organisations.
