On the 12th of September, you will need to get your walking boots out as Walk the Wight has been moved from its previous date, the 9th of May. The organisers wanted to try and make sure that the walk would go ahead this year and that the island charity, Mountbatten Isle of Wight, would receive plenty of donations. This event is so important this year and if you’re able to attend, you can help make a real difference to people’s lives.
Attending Isle of Wight events this summer
