The challenge involved 27 Guernsey Post employees cycling 876 miles around Guernsey on heavy framed post bikes; which is the equivalent distance of cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats!

Senior Postal Worker Paul Wakeham who, together with Steve O’Connor, arranged the challenge said “we’re thrilled to be able to present Help a Guernsey Child with a donation of £2,940. I would like to say a special thank you to everyone at Guernsey Post who rose to the challenge, to the Houmet Tavern and Deerhound for supplying us with refreshments on the way round, and also to Guernsey Post’s Supporting Together Committee which very kindly donated over £1000 in sponsorship.”

Help a Guernsey Child was set up in 2001 to help disadvantaged local children and young people.

Rebecca McGowan, Help a Guernsey Child Charity Secretary said “On behalf of Help a Guernsey Child, I would like to thank everyone at Guernsey Post for raising such a fantastic amount of money. Every penny we receive goes directly to the needs of children and young people in the local community.”
