More than 20 charities have been chosen to receive funds raised by one of the Bailiwick's biggest annual fundraising events.
The 2020 Saffery Rotary Walk will see money go to 22 good causes, funding projects and purchases to benefit the wider community.
Simon Milsted, Chair of the Walk’s organising committee, said: “As always there are some very worthwhile charity projects in the mix to receive funding. It’s already shaping up to be a very exciting year.
“Every year we rely on the generosity, courage and enthusiasm of all the people taking part and generating sponsorship to help raise money and I hope that the community can continue to benefit from efforts this year too. The Walk has really become a very special tradition and I very much look forward to trying to make this a record-breaking year.”

This is the seventh year that headline sponsor Saffery Champness has supported the Walk.
Lisa Vizia, Director at Saffery Champness and member of the organising committee, said: “The Walk’s organising committee is made up of representatives from the Rotary Clubs and Saffery Champness and every year we have the difficult task of selecting the projects from all the charity applications we receive.
“It's always overwhelming to see how many incredible charities there are on the island, which makes choosing projects extremely hard. We aim to support as many projects as possible and try to ensure that the ones we select reflect a diverse slice of island life.”
