25th Saffery Rotary Walk (10 June 2023)

25 local charities will benefit from the 2023 Saffery Rotary Walk


2023 will be a fabulous year to join us on our annual Round Island Walk. Not only will it deliver a tremendous day taking in our wonderful coastal scenery and provide you with the satisfaction of taking part in Guernsey’s most challenging sponsored walk, but this year you will be helping us celebrate two major milestones. Our 2023 walk will be our 25th Round Island Walk and happily it coincides with the 100th Anniversary of the foundation of Rotary in Guernsey, since which time it has continued to serve the community of our Bailiwick.

25 Guernsey charities will benefit from the money raised from the 2023 Saffery Rotary Walk, taking place on Saturday 10th June. This year’s selection represents a diverse range of charities across Guernsey who support islanders through many sectors, such as healthcare, sport, social care, arts, leisure and more. The full list of charities is shown below.

The charities to benefit from the generous support of the walkers and their sponsors in the 2023 Saffery Rotary Walk are:

Art for Guernsey LBG - Refurbishment of frames and additional ones for The Renoir Walk to coincide with international Renoir exhibition to be hosted in Guernsey in Autumn 2023.

Don’t forget, if you are planning to undertake the walk in full or in parts with friends or work mates our relay team registration is also open. In March we will be launching once again our ‘Guernsey Family Walk’. An opportunity for families to come together and enjoy a slightly more leisurely walk down the East Coast, yet still enjoying the fun of being part of our 25th celebrations at the Finish in the heart of St Peter Port’s harbour front.

Whether you are driven by the personal challenge or by the opportunity to help us raise much needed funds for the carefully chosen charity projects that will benefit from your sponsorship, now is the time to commit.

CLICK HERE now to register and become part of one of Guernsey’s most longstanding public sponsored events and enjoy wearing our now famous, bright orange walk shirt.

Please help us by spreading the word. Let’s make our 25th Walk very special day – for those directly involved and for the charities in our Bailiwick that we will be helping.
