About Guernsey Overseas aid & development committee
The Guernsey Overseas Aid & Development Committee have agreed to provide match funding again for this years walk ensuring that every £1 raised is doubled. This is fantastic and will help raise much needed funds.
The Commission is also celebrating an anniversary – ‘40 years of Guernsey Overseas Aid’ as its predecessor was first formed in 1980. The Commission’s motto is ‘Helping the world’s least developed countries through a hand up rather than a hand-out’. It has been estimated by its supported charities that over 365,400 men, women and children were reached directly by Commission funded projects in 2019 alone, as well as thousands more indirect beneficiaries.
Since 1904, four generations of the Thatcher family have been making cider at Myrtle Farm, in Sandford, Somerset. Thatchers passion for quality has led to an unrivalled range of premium ciders, with its deep knowledge of apple varieties resulting in innovative ciders that are full of flavour and with a distinct character that reflects English cidermaking at its best. Its ciders include flagship brand Thatchers Gold, Thatchers Haze, Thatchers Rosé, Thatchers Vintage and Thatchers Katy. www.thatcherscider.co.uk
