A charity walk along the Geneva Lakeside:
It’s all very simple, everyone taking part looks for sponsors who agree to contribute a certain sum for each kilometre walked. On the day of the walk, they are given a ‘passport’ which is stamped by volunteers at checkpoints set up at every kilometre as proof. The money that has been pledged is then collected from the sponsors and sent to Terre des Hommes Suisse, to finance development aid programs.
Antique and second hand dealers fair.
