2017 represents a very special year for our Walk being the 20th Anniversary of the first Rotary Round Island Walk. Our event sponsor, Saffery Champness, also celebrates 40 years here in Guernsey. We have therefore set ourselves ambitious targets. We are seeking to break past records in terms of both the numbers of those participating on the day and the amounts that we can raise for our Bailiwick Charities. So PLEASE join us to make this a year to remember and help us meet our target of 1,000 walkers on the day.
The Walk passes around some of the most beautiful scenery in Guernsey – sunrise at Jerbourg and the cliff paths, passing the golden sandy beaches and offshore rocks, the views across to France and Herm with the other islands as one comes down the east coast. With all this, to complete the Walk is an experience in itself but to combine it with raising funds for local good causes makes it a truly worthwhile achievement.
For those who feel 39 miles may be a step too far, we are, for the second year, inviting Relay teams of between 4 and 7 members to share the load and complete the walk collectively. More details are on our web site - www.safferyrotarywalk.com
We do hope you will be inspired to take part in the Walk. Your contribution to our fund raising effort would also be very much appreciated by the Guernsey charities supported by the 2017 Walk. Our costs of staging the event are met by our generous Corporate Sponsors so every pound of sponsorship that you raise goes to the Charities without deduction. The Saffery Rotary Walk website provides all the information needed for those wishing to walk and those who wish to support.
Remember that in registering for the Walk, you are agreeing to support those specific charities which have successfully applied to the organisers for funds. The Walk is not intended as a vehicle to raise funds for other charities.
