JERSEY COLLAS CRILL ISLAND WALK 2016

I go to Jersey each year to see my daughter. This year, I went in June to take part in the Around the Island W​alk, which has become one of the largest one-day fundrais​ing eve​nts held in Jersey.

In the past 26 years, more than 20,000 walkers have raised over £2 million in sponsorship, with every penny going to well deserving local charities. The walk, which is 48.1 miles around the cliff paths, starts and finishes in St Helier.

The walk takes you around all the different Parishes, exploring the beautiful scenery.

I started at 3am on Sat 18 June 2016, and finished at 10.00pm in the evening. It took 19 hours to complete – not bad for a 78 year old!

Out of the 1300 people who started, only 681 finished. I was the oldest to complete the walk, and I was presented with a trophy with my name engraved on the front. The Lieutenant Governor of Jersey – Sir John McCall, presented the trophy to me at a very enjoyable evening.

Gordon Harrison.
