World Aid Walk
The bright, sunny weather with a cooling breeze on Bank Holiday Monday was just perfect for the World Aid Walk here on Sark with walks also taking place on Guernsey and Herm at the same time. Since the first event in 1970, World Aid Walks have raised more than three quarters of a million pounds to help people in need around the world. Funds raised go towards the work of ActionAid, Christian Aid, Hope for a Child, Oxfam, Save the Children and The Tumaini Fund. The Sark walk was organised by Sarah La Trobe-Bateman and covered six miles of stunning scenery including L’Éperquerie, Harbour Hill and the Gouliot Headland. Twelve walkers, one uni-cyclist and two dogs took part raising almost three hundred pounds.
