PROFESSIONAL BALLET DANCER TO HOLD GALA FOR HOSPICE

robertrobinsonhospice2VIDEO: A professional dancer from the Isle of Wight is organising a gala at Medina Theatre to raise money for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice.

Robert Robinson, a professional dancer with the Stuttgart Ballet in Germany, is planning to showcase some of today’s most exciting and talented young artists at an event over 1st-2nd August.

Robert is aiming to smash last year’s fundraising efforts of £4500 to help the Earl Mountbatten Hospice, who care for patients suffering from or affected by life-shortening illnesses and provides vital help and advice for their families, friends and carers.

Talking from hsi own experiences, Robert said:

“My grandfather was cared for by the wonderful staff of the Earl Mountbatten Hospice. They provided terrific support to my family when we needed it most.

“To say ‘thank you’, I want to raise as much money as possible to help the Earl Mountbatten Hospice continue its outstanding work. I want to put my talents to work and help raise money for them, so they can be there for you or your loved ones if needed”.

A Crowdfunding page has been set up to help raise funds for the event to cover transport costs and in turn help fundraise for the Hospice.
