Isle of Wight holiday 'was really fantastic'

A recent tourist on an Isle of Wight holiday has described her trip to the island as "really fantastic".

Verity Hammond was one of 21 young cancer sufferers to be taken on the trip to the Isle of Wight and sailed around the island with the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust.

Ms Hammond - who is recovering from leukaemia - told the Target that her Isle of Wight holiday was "brilliant".

She added: "The best bit has been learning a completely new skill. It's something I would never have chosen to do by myself and I wouldn't have picked this if I was given a choice."

The 20-year-old said her experience demonstrates what people can get out of life if they try something new.

Halloween could be a good time to take an Isle of Wight holiday, after the local council pointed tourists towards numerous spooky events to attend during the period.

It particularly recommended taking a trip to Elizabethan-style farmhouse Lisle Combe, as it is thought to be haunted.
