Isle of Wight charity events raise cash for cancer care

A total sum of £1,500 has been raised at charity events which tourists on Isle of Wight holidays may have attended throughout the year.

Shanklin Bowls Club has been raising money for the Breast Care Nurses Trust Fund at St Mary's Hospital during 2010, with several events taking place in the last few months.

But the Isle of Wight County Press reports that bad weather put paid to a planned bowls tournament to round off the campaign at the annual president's charity day.

"It was a shame rain stopped play but everyone enjoyed the day anyway," said club president June James, who added that a number of the members have received treatment at the hospital.

Throughout September 2010, tourists on Isle of Wight holidays have been able to raise money for Breast Cancer Campaign through the Isle of Pink festivities on the island.

More than 45,000 are diagnosed with the disease every year.
