A former teacher at Portree High School has recently completed the formidable Camino de Fisterra walk, also known as the walk to the "End of the World!"  The walk, located in Spain, requires an approximate total of 204,894 steps to complete.

Ms Dunan aims to raise money to provide care for underprivileged children in the Narcissa Centre in Slatina, Romania.  She explained: "During last winter's visit, I was concerned to see some of the children arrive in summer sandals and bare feet in bitterly cold conditions.  Thanks to friends and family, I was able to buy them all warm socks and winter boots and ensure that the children did not go hungry.  I would very much appreciate your assistance in continuing to provide for the underprivileged children of Slatina this winter."

Since her retirement, Ms Dunan has been visiting and raising money for Romanian orphans.  She said: "I will go back to the Centre, which I have visited twice a year since I retired.  The Centre cares for and nurtures orphaned or abandoned children and provides support for some of Europe's poorest children from the Roma community.  Any money raised from our walk will be used to enhance the lives of these children and also to help with the upkeep of the Centre."

So far, Ms Dunan has raised 60% of her £1,000 target.  Her Go Fund Me page can be found here.
