This weekend's programme features bargains to be had, birds to be watched and strolls to be walked.

Each week, Bailiwick Wellbeing shares a selection of sporty and community local events for you to get involved in.

Here are the top picks...

NSPCC Jersey Walk for Children & Light Ups

When? All weekend

Where? All around the island

What? Over 20 local buildings have been lit up in green and flying flags this week to help raise awareness of NSPCC Jersey and encourage donations to fund its services.

Friends, families and colleagues are invited to walk 5k (Walk for Children) and raise money amongst the longest nights of the year. You can plan your own route or follow those suggested by the NSPCC to tie in with the lit up buildings, which include Jersey Airport, the Boat House in St. Aubin, IFC5, the Harbour and Trinity Manor. Check the event’s JustGiving page for more information and to make donations.
