This December through an online donations appeal, a Christmas Film Festival at Cineworld, The Penguin Plunge in Ryde, and the generous support from the local island community, Age UK Isle of Wight raised an incredible £5,163.
100% of all the funds raised stay on the Island and will help Age UK Isle of Wight provide companionship and support to more older islanders, all year round.
Elisha Leachman Fundraising Manager, said:
‘We are delighted with the amount our campaign raised this year. No one should have no one to turn to, not only at Christmas but all year round.
“Thank you so much to everybody who supported us by coming to our Christmas events, to everyone that donated and to our amazing sponsors Megan Baker Estate Agents.”
