Too much turkey and Christmas pudding? Why not make the 2013 Itex Rotary walk part of your New Year get fit regime!

The walk has now become one of Guernsey's key fund raising events for local charities and attracts several hundred participants every year determined to complete the nearly forty mile route.

2013 is the sixteenth year that the walk has been held and each year significant sums of money have been raised. In 2012 the walk raised nearly £52,000 and with your help we will hit a similar level this year.

Their chosen charities for 2013 are ourselves (GSPCA), Guernsey Voluntary Service, Guernsey Ambulance and Rescue Service, Friends of the Priaulx Library, St Martin's Day Service, Every Child Our Future.

So don't delay - just register by clicking here now and make a real contribution to some amazing local causes and at the same time improve your fitness levels and achieve something special!

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'We are very grateful and excited to be part of the Itex-Rotary Walk 2013.'

'Staff and volunteers are already putting their names forward and we are looking forward to the walk in June.'
