Many people who walk The Way of St James do so to deal with an external life event and David Hardy was no exception.
David walked the Camino Frances in 2017 after events in Australia changed his life forever.
In 2014 David’s son Joshua was murdered in an act of social violence and since then David has advocated tirelessly for positive change.
After the final court case was finished, David sat on a plane to head back to Darwin in Northern Australia. On that flight he watched ‘The Way’ and when he reached his house he booked his flight to Europe and onto theThe Way of St James.
David believes in the power of education to drive cultural change and shares his story with schools, sporting clubs and community groups to raise the profile of the issue of social violence.
In his role, David hopes to encourage young men to step back and think before they react and make a split second decision that they will regret forever.
It was an absolute privilege to meet David in Santiago and to share his story with you all.
