Well done to all the local people who took part in the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in Seaclose park earlier this year, running one, three or six miles in aid of Sport Relief. The money has been counted up and the Island participants raised an impressive total of £ 5076.54.
Alec Broome, sports development officer at Isle of Wight Council organised the event on behalf of Comic Relief and said: “We are delighted with the total amount of money we have raised this year. It’s brilliant to have been part of such a successful Sport Relief year and know that we are helping to make a difference to people’s lives. Thank you to all those who took part. ”
Some great news from the Island's fire and rescue service.
Congratulations to Island firefighters Aidy Wellock and Aden Thomson!
