Follow the link at https://race-nation.com/walk-a-mile-in-their-shoes-2015 to register and have a great time whilst helping Safer. We start from Salerie Corner at 2pm on 21st November 2015 with a warm up with dynamic Debbie Duport before being sent off by Dame Mary Perkins. We finish at the Guernsey Yacht Club with refreshments and entertainment by the Ukuladeez. The event is part of White Ribbon Week and is an opportunity for local MEN to help work to end violence against women. Money raised will go directly to Safer to enable us to support victims of domestic abuse in Guernsey. See More
