The 2019 Herm World Aid Walk will take place on Monday 6th May 2019 starting at 09.30 from Herm Harbour. Since the first World Aid Walk started in 1970, over half a million pounds has been raised to help people in need around the world. This year will mark the 49th Guernsey World Aid Walk, the 9th Herm Walk and the 3rd Sark World Aid Walk.
Action Aid, Christian Aid, The Tumaini Fund, The Eleanor Foundation and This is Epic will all benefit from the funds you raise. Read more about their chosen projects on our 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. For the third year running, the Overseas Aid and Development Commission has 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.
