Jennifer Reynolds, an Edinburgh artist, is walking the Camino Way in Spain and raising funds for a mule/donkey refuge in Marrakech.

My name is Jennifer Reynolds. Owning a busy art studio in the city of Edinburgh where I teach students of all ages keeps me fulfilled. Running art events and taking my art lovers on art adventure holidays to Morocco, France and soon Italy quenches my thirst for travel too.

My passion runs deep for many things from photography to painting, creativity, exploring nature and connecting with interesting people. There is so much to learn and so little time, so being creative, expressive, honest and vital are the foundations for me. I enjoy helping others tap into their creative self which provides me with a rich life of sharing whilst learning about my students in the process. Art is truly healing and therapeutic. It can enrich, relax and soothe the soul!

During my time in Morocco I learned of the plight of working donkeys and mules both in the tourist industry and on building sites in the cities. When old, ill or disabled these animals are usually abandoned to die. Jarjeer is a Sanctuary in Marrakech that opens its doors to these equines and offers them sanctuary, rest and a home for life. They are commited to woking with the local authorities and local people to improve the lot of these gentle creatures.

The Sanctaury is privately funded and relies on personal retirement income and the generosity of like minded people. 

I have decided to walk the Camino Way...A right of passage, a pilgrimage, an adventure a catharsis. Everyone who walks the way has a reason or several reasons. I shall be revealing mine gradually as I go.... I have already decided to use this adventure to raise funds for The Jarjeer Mules and Donkey Sanctuary so that they can build a new stable block for yet more mules before the winter sets in. Please help me by pledging a donation, as little or as much as you can. You can follow my progress on my blog by clicking here. Thank you.
