Vice Admiral Sir Ian Corder, the Lieutenant-Governor of Guernsey, and Lady Corder will take part in the Saffery Rotary Walk on 3 June 2017.

They will be given the specially allocated walker identification numbers 1 and 2 respectively to acknowledge their support of the charity fund raising walk.

2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the Saffery Rotary Walk and the 40th anniversary of Saffery Champness in Guernsey.

Over 650 people participated in the 2016 walk with one in six coming from outside the island, making a significant contribution to the total raised of £57,526.

Sir Ian will be contacting some of his past service colleagues from the UK and beyond to encourage them to come over and take on the challenge of walking around the entire coast of Guernsey.

The committee hopes that islanders will follow this great example and encourage their own friends and family from off-island to come over to Guernsey to take part.

“My wife and I are very glad to be part of the 20th anniversary of this important and inclusive annual event and are very much looking forward to meeting islanders and visitors along the route,” Sir Ian said.

Twenty-eight local charitable projects have been selected to receive funding from the monies raised by participants this year.

Simon Milsted, chair of the walk’s organising committee, said “we are extremely grateful that the Lieutenant Governor and Lady Corder are supporting us in this way and we hope that many other people will be enthused to join them on the 20th anniversary of this iconic island event.”

“To have the Lieutenant Governor and Lady Corder’s support is a fitting way to mark both the charity walk’s 20th and our company’s 40th anniversary in Guernsey,” said Lisa Vizia, director at Saffery Champness.

Participants can register on the web.  For those who feel 39 miles may be a step too far, relay teams of between 4 and 7 members are invited to share the load and complete the walk collectively.
