Applications are requested from Jersey Charities for projects in Jersey for the Island Walk sponsored by TMF Group for the 2022 Walk.
Applications are to be sent to the trustees at PO Box 848, St Helier, JE4 0XA by 15th November, 2021. All applicants will be advised of the decisions by early December 2021.
With the exception of 2020, when the Walk could not take place, this will be the third year that TMF Group has sponsored this one day challenge which was so successful in 2021.
The Walk is now in its 31st year and with over 26,000 walkers and £2.4M raised for local charities it is one of the biggest fundraising events involving the community in the Island. The trustees would hope to choose 3 main charities, as well as a further 6 to 8 charities for lesser amounts.
The Walk itself is a challenge and takes place on the 19th June commencing at the Elizabeth Terminal at 3 am and finishing over the Waterfront Car park. For this Walk the Lt Governor’s Challenge will be from St Catherine’s breakwater (6 am start) to Les Fontaines.
This year applications should include the project, the likely timescale, other applications made, accounts for the last 3 years and what help can be given. To increase the involvement and publicity for the chosen charities the trustees will expect each charity to promote the Walk and to assist on the day with checkpoints, the finish and such other jobs as become necessary during and up to the Walk.
Normally well over 1,000 people take part in the Walk, the Lt Governor's Challenge and the Relay. Registration will open on 15th January with an early bird fee, which will increase at the end of February.
