April 9th, 2013 by World Aid Walk

The organisers of Guernsey’s World Aid Walk have confirmed that there is a new route for the 2013 walk.

The walk will take place on Bank Holiday Monday 6 May 2013.

As in previous years, the walk begins at 9 am and finishes in Market Square, St Peter Port.

The walk goes through St Peter Port High Street, along the waterfront, into the Vale, and to the West Coast, and then return to St Peter Port up the Rohais.

Bella Farrell Chair of the World Aid Walk said “we are delighted to be able to confirm the new route.”

“We 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,” she said.

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. Forms can be downloaded from the World Aid Walk website or picked up from the Beau Sejour Leisure Centre or the Oxfam shop on Smith Street in St Peter Port.

Ipes will sponsor the walk for the 13th year meaning every penny raised will go directly to the benefiting charities.

Michel Davy, Ipes Guernsey Managing Director, said “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.”
