Isle of Wight carol singers raise money for charity

Money has been raised for charity by a carol singing event which has taken place on the Isle of Wight.

According to a report of the fundraising mission by the Isle of Wight County Press, the money collected on the day is yet to be counted.

But cheques for £300 were presented to the Earl Mountbatten Hospice - which will also benefit from the cash raised by the carol singers - by Cowes Town Council and Cowes Business Association.

"Prayers were led by the Reverend Richard Emblem, Vanessa Slade played the flute and mulled wine and mince pies were provided by the Painters Arms and Cowes Co-op respectively," commented the news provider.

Writing for VentnorBlog earlier in the month, Helen Bailey stated that a Christmas market held on the Isle of Wight had been a great success.

Briddlesford Lodge Farm hosted the event, which was attended by local businesspeople and firms such as Isle of Fudge, Sarah Kearney, Forest View Nurseries, Badgers Walk and Jules Marriner.
