Thank you for joining us for the 50th Guernsey World Aid Walk, sponsored by Specsavers, Northern Trust, Guernsey Overseas & Development Committee and Thatchers Cider.
Below is information for walkers, including some instructions to secure your own comfort and safety.
Please note, this event is a ‘walk’, so we cannot take responsibility for anyone who chooses to run the course.
For insurance purposes, all walkers must have a unique Walker Number.
You should receive this in the email confirming your registration. Please make a note of It.
On the day of the Walk, please check in at the Start Table (see times below) and quote your Walker Number to collect your pin-on identification number.
If you print out a sponsorship form, put your name and Walker Number on it, and bring it on the day. This will speed up the process. There is a link to your sponsorship form in your confirmation email.
Sponsorship money and paper forms
We would encourage all walkers to ask as many sponsors as possible to pledge money for your efforts.
People can also donate to the charities benefitting from the Walk here. Donate here
Once you have registered, you can collect sponsorship money via your Race Nation personal online fundraising page.
A link will be sent to you by email.
You might also like to print out a sponsorship form. Please write your name and Walker Number on the sponsorship form even if you’ve collected money online. Remember to pick up your sponsorship form after the walk if you still have more sponsorship money to collect.
Arrangements for payment of sponsorship money after the Walk are detailed on the form. If you bring sponsorship monies with you on the day, please hand them in with your sponsorship form to the Start table.
Sponsorship monies can also be handed in, after you have finished the Walk, to the Treasury Team at La Mare De Carteret High School.
If you don’t bring sponsorship monies on the day, your sponsorship form still needs to be handed in so that it can be stamped to show your sponsors that you have done the Walk.
Please note that the sponsorship form is not available to download from the website. If you haven’t got one, please check for a link in the email confirming your registration.
