GOOD TO GO! WALK THE WIGHT SET FOR SUNDAY AS VOLUNTEERS FILL THE GAPS

Walk the Wight will go ahead on Sunday after a huge response to Mountbatten’s plea for more volunteers.

An urgent appeal for people to help at the walk was issued by Mountbatten yesterday (Monday).

Many have come forward and filled the gaps to ensure the event can be held as planned.

Nigel Hartley, CEO of Mountbatten Isle of Wight, says:

“From the bottom of our hearts, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone in our incredible Island community who has come forward to help us.

“This has been an extraordinary response and has given us all a huge lift ahead of Sunday.

“We have faced so many challenges this year but we were always absolutely determined to organise Walk the Wight because it is so important to us.

“To everyone who has come forward, and to those already volunteering on the day, thank you so much.”
