Could you help to make Walk the Wight 2020 ‘extra special’? People are being urged to save the date. 

Next year the Island’s largest fundraising event and the largest walk of its kind in Europe will turn 30 years old.

Organisers say they plan to mark the big occasion in style, and have revealed that the 30th Walk the Wight will take place on Sunday 10 May 2020.

Mountbatten Chief Executive Nigel Hartley said:

“Walk the Wight has been a phenomenal success story.

“Next year we really want to celebrate all that is so special about it, from the early years through to now.

“The walk is as vital as ever for us because it raises funds and awareness about the work we do.

“We would like people to save the date and look forward to being part of what will be an incredible celebration.”
