Youngsters 'excited for Isle of Wight holiday'

A group of youngsters who are set to take an Isle of Wight holiday later this month are becoming increasingly excited about their impending trip.

Although the 40 Kettering kids are not due to leave for the island until July 24th 2010, some of them have already started packing for their Isle of Wight holiday, reports the Northants Evening Telegraph.

The children - who are all from deprived backgrounds - will travel to the island after fundraising efforts from the Kettering Centre for the Unemployed.

Organiser Maggie Don stated that the youngsters are getting "extremely excited" about the island break.

"Many of them are now counting down how many 'sleeps' they have at home before they leave," she said.

Following consultations with customers, the local Sainsbury's supermarket made paying for the trip its charity of the year.

Popular destinations for the children when they take their Isle of Wight holiday later this year could include Amazon Zoo World Park, which is located near Newchurch.
