Isle of Wight charity campaign nears fundraising target

A charity campaign which has been taking place on the Isle of Wight this month is nearing its fundraising targets.

The organisers behind the Isle of Pink initiative wanted to raise £30,000 and have revealed they are now close to achieving their goal.

Lauren Basket, Breast Cancer Campaign community development manager, stated that the charity is "delighted" with the response.

"The support from the community was amazing and we would like to thank everyone who got involved, donated, volunteered and helped at events making this year's month-long event a huge success," she said.

Tourists on their Isle of Wight holidays can get involved in the fundraising on October 29th 2010 when everyone on the island is encouraged to wear pink clothing.

Businesses on the Isle of Wight have got involved, such as ferry operator Red Funnel and amusement park Blackgang Chine.

The Isle of Wight County Press reports that the Holy Trinity Church in Bembridge will be hosting a concert on October 16th to raise money for the Sistema Scotland charity.
