IWPCSG have been very fortunate to benefit from the efforts of many people who have dedicated time and energy into raising funds for our charity. Below you can see examples of future projects that we hope will spark your interest and encourage you to support us. If you scroll down further, you will see a couple of examples of successful fundraising projects that have enabled us to do that little bit extra to support Isle of Wight men in the detection and treatment of prostate cancer.
Raising awareness of IWPCSG
£1,800 RAISED FOR PROSTATE CANCER SUPPORT GROUP BY SHOPS’ FASHION SHOW
A bi-annual fundraiser in which 2 Ryde shops team up to put on an Autumn/Winter fashion show has raised £1,800 for charity.
Bellissima and Sugar & Spice, both located on Union Street, held the event in aid of Isle of Wight Prostate Cancer Support Group at The Royal Esplanade Hotel on the weekend before Halloween.
The hotel had decorated the room beautifully to the theme of Halloween and guests were treated to a thriller opening dance routine, performed by several of the models and 2 guests from Spotlight Theatre Company. There was also an appearance from James Bond and M to open the second half!
Guests had a fabulous evening of fun, whilst viewing the latest styles that are now available in both stores, shown by the 22 models. There was entertainment from Short n Sweet Duo throughout the evening, which ended with a raffle thanks to prize donations from other local businesses.
A cheque for £1878.00 was presented to Graham Dooley and Pam Blayney, representatives of the Isle of Wight Prostate Cancer Support Group.
