December 2020 - As a result of illness John Henderson, owner of Walking Support, has had to make the difficult
decision to amend the services we can offer. Some of the changes are on a permanent basis while others are
subject to being on a temporary nature dependent on the success of treatment.
As of 14th December the Baggage Transfer services on the Borders Abbeys Route will end and Walking Support have
reached an agreement with Carry-lite to transfer any already booked services to them. Walking Support will also
be recommending that any new requirements are directed to Carry-lite and their details can be found on this
As of 15th December our Planning and Booking Services for all of our Pilgrimage Walkers will be supported by
Walk the Camino (WTC).
The following joint statement has been agreed between Walking Support and Walk the Camino.
John Henderson is stepping back from directly arranging pilgrimage walks due to health matters. His company,
Walking Support, has partnered with Scottish tour operator Walk The Camino which will manage their
bookings and enquiries during 2021. WTC has over a decade of experience in arranging pilgrimages on Europe's
Camino routes to Santiago de Compostela and Rome.
The two companies have worked together on Scotland's pilgrim routes over the last few years. We share
a company ethos and commitment to high customer service standards. John will continue to contribute as a
consultant and share his expertise.
In the initial phase, Walk The Camino will manage Walking Support's pilgrimage tours, and endeavour
to respect the arrangements and costs of all current bookings.
If you wish to make an enquiry, please fill in the form on the booking page
You will then be contacted by the new team, who will work with you to understand your requirements and
arrange your pilgrimage tour.
You can find out more about Walk The Camino here, https://walkthecamino.com/ and, also at their Scottish
website https://scotlandswalks.com All bookings will be subject to Walk The Camino's Terms and Conditions,
and carry financial protection through the ABTA scheme
Setting up of walking packages for 2021 onwards are likely to be transferred to another business that Walking
Support have collaborated with over several years. More will be posted regarding this over the coming days. Our
hope is that Walking Support may with time be able to work with this potential partner to bring our knowledge
and skills so that client groups can be assured of the same professional and personalise services .
