BWCI celebrates 40 years with (nearly) 40 miles


BWCI is celebrating its 40th anniversary by entering 40 people in to the Saffery Rotary Walk.

The walk - just shy of 40 miles long - is one of the many events that the actuarial, consultancy and administration firm is using to mark its celebrations for the ‘big four zero’.

Alison Hawkins, Senior HR manager at BWCI said:

“We have a full calendar of events throughout the year, including staff and client entertainment.  The weekend before the Saffery Rotary Walk we have team building activities planned leading to a celebration in the evening. Staff are also receiving monthly gifts from the partners and we’ve launched additional bursaries; an A-Level/Graduate Trainee scheme and other charitable activities are taking place.

“The walk is a big challenge but one that our employees are tackling as a team, which is a great way to celebrate our milestone.”

Staff from both the Guernsey and Jersey offices have registered for the Saffery Rotary Walk, with 13 people signed up as individual entries while the rest are split into four relay teams.

Each team can have a maximum of seven people and will pay the group price of £140. The walk is divided into seven checkpoints and teams are encouraged to spread these out between their members to make sure the whole walk is covered from start to finish. Walkers will be able to check in or out at each checkpoint with their own individual walker identification.

Nigel Dorey, vice-chairman of the Saffery Rotary Walk, said:

“It’s wonderful that BWCI has decided to use our Walk as part of its ongoing anniversary celebrations. We’re always extremely overwhelmed and grateful for all the support local businesses show us. The relay entry is great option for businesses because it really embraces the team and community spirit of the event, which is what the Walk is really all about.”

The Saffery Rotary Walk, which is sponsored by Saffery Champness, is one of the island's largest charity fundraising events and has supported dozens of charitable causes over the past 20 years. Last year over £60,000 was distributed between 20 charities, and this year there are 23 charities set to receive funds.
