Rosamond Poncia, Mountbatten Trustee and Chair of the Gift Fair Committee, said:

“We are delighted to bring the Mountbatten Gift Fair back to Bembridge Sailing Club. The committee, who all volunteer their time, have worked hard to make this the biggest and best fair yet with lots of new stalls and wonderful raffle prizes to be won.

“Not only is this a fabulous opportunity to stock up on some exceptional Christmas gifts, but by supporting this event, you will be helping families on the Isle of Wight when they need it the most.”

For the last 6 years, the committee has hosted a gift fair and even held a virtual version during lockdown in 2020, which raised £11,000 for the hospice.

Shoppers are invited to attend a special preview night between 17:00 and 20:00 on Friday 26th November 2021, when the £15 entry cost includes wine and delicious canapés. Tickets can be purchased online at www.miowevents.co.uk.
