The organisers of Guernsey's World Aid Walk have confirmed a new route is now in place for this year's walk sponsored by Ipes.
The walk will take place on Bank Holiday Monday 6th May and once again start at 9am and finish in Market Square. The walk will go through the High Street and along the front into the Vale and onto the West Coast before returning to St Peter Port up the Rohais.
Bella Farrell Chair of the World Aid Walk says “We are delighted to now be able to confirm the new route and hope this will encourage more people to take part as we are confident this is a safer route for walkers and will provide a new challenge for those who have taken part in the event for many years.”
Action Aid, Christian Aid, Hope for a Child, Save the Children, Oxfam and The Tumaini Fund all benefit from the funds raised by walkers. Each charity has its own projects earmarked that the funds from the walk will go towards.
Entry is now open for this year’s walk and forms can be downloaded from http://www.worldaidwalk.org.gg/ or picked up from Beau Sejour or the Oxfam shop in St Peter Port.
Ipes will sponsor the walk for the 13th year meaning every penny raised will go directly to the benefiting charities. Ipes Guernsey Managing Director Michel Davy says, “We are confident the new route will be a great attraction to walkers and we are very pleased to once again be supporting this event.”
