A Peace Pilgrim's Journey Across The UK

Tanausu Herrera has left his job in London to trek across Britain in light of the Manchester terror attack.

A fashion photographer based in London has put his work commitments to one side to trek across the UK and Europe on a Peace Pilgrimage.

Tanausu Herrera left London on Wednesday 24th May and is making his way through Wales, Ireland, Scotland and eventually the rest of Europe.

Tanausu had the idea to walk thousands of miles following the Manchester terror attack where 22 people lost their lives.

He is hoping to spread a message of peace across Europe and is relying on members of the public's generosity and kindness to help him on his way.

Photographs on his Facebook page show him yesterday (Friday 2nd June) on a bridge in Briton Ferry with the messages, "Time to sing out loud another song over a bridge, such a great feeling!"


Andre Van Wyk, an Arts Development Officer for Awen Cultrual Trust, bumped into Tanausu as he arrived in Swansea.

The fashion photographer's story peaked Andre's interest through his involvement with Shed Quarters - an organisation looking after the well being of men in the UK by coming together to do practical activities.

Here's Andre's interview with Tanausu:
