World Aid Walk A Huge Success In The Channel Islands!
World Aid Walk 2015 was a huge success, and we were delighted to again support this brilliant annual event in the Channel Islands with free insurance cover!
This year World Aid Walk was again a popular occasion where Guernsey, Herm and Sark join forces to raise money for some excellent charity organisation. 758 people took part in Guernsey, and 100 others joined in Herm. The total pledged in Guernsey was just under £15,000 – a figure that continues to rise as more donations are paid in, and Herm also raised a brilliant £800. Figures are still being gathered from Sark.
Dave Hughes, World Aid Walk Treasurer, was extremely happy with the success. “The charities that benefit from the World Aid Walk are all most grateful to the Insurance Corporation for faithfully supporting the walk by providing insurance cover without charge for many years. It is only through receiving this sort of assistance to cover our costs that we can ensure all monies raised by the walkers go to the charities and can be used to help some of the poorest people in the world.”
Congratulations to all of this years walkers – and here’s to 2016!
