Who we are

The UK Friends is a group of people who have walked, wish to walk or are engaged in the development of the Abraham Path network of trails.

Our aim is to grow a community of people who are travelling or actively supporting walking in the Middle East and sharing their experiences. Through our website and Facebook page we invite people to join our group, learn about our network and participate.

As a UK-registered charitable company we are run by a Board of Trustee Directors.

The Trustees are:

  • Max Farrar
  • Sean Gallagher
  • Anam Hoque
  • Louise Sibley (chair)
  • Mia Tamarin
  • Rabbi Debbie Young-Somers

We have an advisory group whose role is to act as a consultative body for areas of specialism or expertise we believe necessary for us to fulfill our role.

We are also represented on the Board of the Abraham Path Initiative, the internationally-based organisation which supports local partners in our network and in developing and extending the path.
