Isle of Wight charity event 'was very successful'

A recent charity event held on the Isle of Wight has been described as "very successful" after an impressive final sum of money was revealed.

The Isle of Wight County Press reports that a party held to raise funds for the Bembridge Lifeboat Station appeal by island couple Amanda and Bruce Huber was attended by around 250 people, who raised almost £20,000 between them.

Island artist Hugh Fairfax stated that the night, which included an auction of locally-made art, was "fun", adding: "We really rocked the night away."

Mrs Huber explained that the money will go towards the £1 million fundraising target set by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

"We were lucky so many generous people gave their time and services so every penny could go to the appeal," she said.

Lauren Basket, Breast Cancer Campaign community development manager, recently stated that around £30,000 was raised during charity events on the Isle of Wight throughout the Isle of Pink celebrations.
