Dear Walker,

Following yesterdays torrential rainstorms I would  like to personally thank each and every one of you for bringing your personal commitment, passion and unique contribution to this special event which I can see Guernsey people embrace come rain or shine!

I have never been more moved at a fund raiser than yesterday. Seeing islanders as young as 6 show such resilience as they walked in that rain. 650 walkers kept going. Wow!

The World Aid Walk volunteers are all a pleasure to co ordinate and work with. Yesterday the many marshals and check point coordinators were incredible, battling the storms, to keep our walkers safe.

To all the bands, singers and entertainers most of which were under 18… thank you for keeping our spirits up all day.

To all the organizing team… thank  you for making my job the easiest…

We raised over £24,000, thanks to you and the generous matching scheme of our Overseas Aid Commission.

Finally, thank you to Karol from Sarnia Hotels, who not only walked but ensured that by generous sponsorship, all funds raised by walkers go directly to the charities we support.


Bella Farrell, Chairperson of the World Aid Walk Organising Committee
