Island Walk requests charity applications
Applications are requested from Jersey charities for projects in Jersey for the Island Walk sponsored by TMF Group for the 2020 Walk.

Applications are to be sent to the trustees at PO Box 848, St Helier, JE4 0XA by 1 November, 2019. All applicants will be advised of the decisions by early December.

This will be the second year that TMF Group has sponsored this one day challenge, which was so successful in 2019.

The Walk is now in its 29th year and with over 23,000 walkers and £2.3M raised for local charities it is one of the biggest fund raising events involving the community on the Island.

The trustees would hope to choose 3 main charities and a further 6 to 8 for lesser amounts.

The walk itself is a challenge and takes place on the 20 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 15 January with an early bird fee which will increase at the end of February.
