The 11th Catch 22 Charity Challenge

The first May Bank Holiday weekend saw 20 hardy souls gather on Guernsey to undertake the 11th Catch 22 Charity Challenge – namely walking the entire 39 miles of the island’s coastline. The Challenges date back to 1997 when we firstly tackled the 3 Peaks and has taken in Hadrian’s Wall, the Welsh 3000s, the Glencoe Round and the Cornish coastline, to name but a few.

Managing Director, Vince Parker had this to say afterwards:

“Well, we did it!  39 miles around Guernsey, 22 miles one day along the northern flat part in glorious sunshine but the final day, 17 miles of serious ups and downs, was completed in l rain!

There were twenty exhausted souls at the end; some couldn’t even make the bar! On the twentieth anniversary of the Charity Challenge, I’m delighted to say that over £5000 has currently been raised, and that figure is still rising, for The Lord’s Taverners, Cancer Research and Mesothelioma UK.”
