Helping Guernsey's children Be Active with a daily mile

07 January 2019

Thanks to members like you, we're able to support local charities and community groups in Jersey and Guernsey through our Helping Hands fund.

Last year, one of our successful applicants in Guernsey was Be Active. The Be Active initiative promotes physical wellbeing for young people in Guernsey, and they applied for funding to support their Daily Mile project in schools.

The daily mile project has had far-reaching effects in Guernsey with almost every primary school child on the island getting outdoors for some regular exercise during their school day.

This project has also had benefits beyond getting the children moving. Watch our video to find out how:

We were delighted to be able to support this group through our Helping Hands scheme - it really is a worthy cause!

If you have a project that could use a helping hand, let us know and apply for funding. Applications are open each January for one month.
