The 2019 World Aid Walk will take place on Monday 6th May starting at 9am. Since the first World Aid Walk started in 1970, you’ve raised over half a million pounds to help people in need around the world. This year will mark the 49th Guernsey World Aid Walk, the 9th Herm World Aid Walk and the 3rd Sark World Aid Walk.
ActionAid, Christian Aid, The Tumaini Fund, This Is EPIC, and The Eleanor Foundation, will all benefit from the funds you raise in 2019. Read more about their chosen projects on this website www.worldaidwalk.org.gg. Every penny you donate this year will be doubled by the Overseas Aid & Development Commission, so please encourage all your friends, family and colleagues to donate and help change the lives of some of the poorest communities in the world.
We are delighted to continue our association with our sponsors Sarnia Hotels Guernsey and Specsavers. The funds that they provide ensure the smooth running of the World Aid Walk as well as ensuring that every penny raised from the walk goes towards the beneficiary charities. The Overseas Aid and Development Commission has again agreed to match fund every penny raised by the Walk, so that means your donations will go twice as far to help some of the poorest communities in the world, so please encourage everyone you know to donate.
We are selling bespoke World Aid Walk 2019 t-shirts as part of the registration process for just £10. The shirts are made from technical sports material, which is breathable and 100% ethically sourced. All profits from the sale of the shirts will go directly to the five beneficiary charities of this year's Walk. You can collect your shirt at the start of the walk on Monday 6 May, or from Market Square between 12-6pm on Thursday 2 May.
A huge thank you for caring to help the world’s poorest communities.
