As always, the show’s proceeds will be donated to local charities and good causes, with every penny staying on the Island. This year The Wight Strollers’ chosen beneficiaries are the Isle of Wight Food Bank, the IW Alzheimer’s Café, WightSAR, The COOK Project, the World Scout Jamboree (IOW Team) 2019 and 1st Ryde Brownies.

The Wight Strollers have raised over £245,000 for Island charities and good causes since 1981 and the total keeps rising.
