Walk for Tibet 2017

24th of September 2017, Gourdon

The starting point in Gourdon The annual sponsored Tibet Walk by Tibet Support Group Grampian this year took place on 24th of September 2017
between Gourdon, Johnshaven and Benholm on the east coast of Scotland.

To all of you who donated to our Tibet Walk this year, We are delighted that the total raised by the September Walk was £681. In addition we had a small historical walk round Old Aberdeen in the Spring which raised £79, so our grand total is £760. We have upped this to £800 from our current funds, and sent out the following donations: Tibet Society £350 Free Tibet £350 Students for a Free Tibet UK £100

Thank you all so much for coming on the walk and for your most generous contributions. We really appreciate your support.Liz (Treasurer Tibet Support Group Grampian)

" It is my belief that whereas the twentieth century has been a century of war and untold suffering, the twenty-first century should be one of peace and dialogue. As the continued advances in information technology make our world a truly global village, I believe there will come a time when war and armed conflict will be considered an outdated and obsolete method of settling differences among nations and communities." H.H. The Dalai Lama
