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. If you scroll down further, you will see 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.
Long Lane Christmas Lights
Terry and Sue Ramplin have lit up their home in Long Lane Staplers for the last 22 years, raising nearly £40K for IOW charities in this time.
The lives of around 30 men are expected to be saved thanks to funds raised by the Long Lane Christmas Lights display in 2022, with a cheque for almost £4,900 handed over to IW Prostate Cancer Support Group this week.
Each year Terry and Sue Ramplin’s Christmas Lights display in Newport attracts thousands of visitors who, throughout the month of December, were extra generous in donating a total of £4,879 to charity.
It was dedicated that the local Prostate Cancer Support Group would be the chosen charity for 2022, having helped save lives with money raised for the charity in 2021 too.
Since 2014 alone the Ramplins have raised just a smidge under £39,000 for charity, but have been lighting up their house so much longer – since 2000.
Massive thanks to Terry and Sue!
Fashion Show for Prostate Cancer Support Group by Bellissima and Sugar & Spice in Ryde
A bi-annual fundraiser in which 2 Ryde shops team up to put on an Autumn/Winter fashion show has raised over £1,800 for our 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 representatives of the Isle of Wight Prostate Cancer Support Group.
