Isle of Wight charity ball 'will be fantastic'

Tourists from the mainland have been urged to book Isle of Wight holidays in order to attend a charity ball that has been predicted to be "fantastic".

According to Mary Hodder, one of the organisers of the charity ball, she and her colleagues from Cowes Primary School realised three years ago it is rare a black tie event is opened up to the public.

"We've all known people who have been affected by either breast or testicular cancer and took it upon ourselves to do something to raise money," she told the Isle of Wight County Press.

Ms Hodder added that she is hoping the 2010 event will break the £12,000 record previously raised at the bash.

This year the ball will get underway at 19:00 BST on October 9th at the events centre at Cowes Yacht Haven, with tickets available in advance for £40.

People taking Isle of Wight holidays later in October can raise money for Breast Cancer Campaign by taking part in the Wear it Pink Day on the 31st.
