Guernsey Overseas Aid & Development Commission have agreed to match fund monies raised in 2018 walk

Very good news for the World Aid Walk is that the Overseas Aid & Development Commission have agreed to once again match the funding from sponsorship raised by those participating in the 2018 World Aid Walk.

The Commissioners has agreed to extend the previous matched funding agreement and will offer up to £5,000 of matched funding per participating charity against their individual share of the overall sponsorship.

This agreement will provide match funding for the 2018, 2019 and 2020 World Aid Walk. The 2020 will be the 50th anniversary for the first World Aid Walk. The Commission’s decision reflects its recognition as to how much part of Island life the World Aid Walk has become since its inception in 1970 and the huge difference the funds raised by countless walkers since then has made to the lives of some of the poorest people in the world.
