Sponsored Walk, August 2014


On 20th and 21st August, Friends of Bulgaria's John Brisby and Tom Gentleman are planning to scale three of the highest peaks in the Balkan mountains to raise money for one of our most worthwhile causes - supporting the music and dance programme of the Nezabravka Home for abandoned children in the Bulgarian city of Stara Zagora. For more details about the walk and the music project, click HERE.
