Isle of Wight to host charity event for World Autism Awareness Day

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays for World Autism Awareness Day on April 2nd 2011 can attend a charity event to raise funds for the cause during their time on the island.

The Bugle Coaching Inn in Yarmouth will be hosting the night of live comedy and music after autistic 15-year-old Josh Peverley put together the bill in aid of the National Autistic Society.

Local news source VentnorBlog revealed that the bands to be playing are The Almighty Chancers, The Scores, Keri Highland and Arizona 81, all of which have been chosen by Josh himself.

"Comedian Dominic Pope will be hosting the evening and hopefully have you laughing between the music acts," added the website.

Attendance is free but donations are welcome, while visitors will also be able to enter a raffle, with prizes including a professional photoshoot, a family day out at Amazon World and a £25 voucher for Wight Outdoors.

A pair of tickets to Isle of Wight festival Bestival are up for grabs too, with The Cure, Primal Scream, Pendulum and PJ Harvey among the headline acts.
