Guernsey Overseas Aid & Development Commission
The Guernsey Overseas Aid & Development Commission 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’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.
