It’s time to Go Yellow to raise vital funds for Mountbatten!

Isle of Wight Radio is proud to be the official media partners of this years Go Yellow day!

This year’s Go Yellow takes place on the 4th October 2019 – how will you be helping turn the Isle of Wight yellow? Perhaps you’ll wear something yellow, eat something yellow, or maybe even do something yellow!

Mountbatten believes that no-one on the Isle of Wight should face death, dying or bereavement alone, without Mountbatten by their side.

Thanks to our support, on any one day, we are able to provide the highest quality care and support for more than 1400 people across the Isle of Wight.

By taking part in Go Yellow 2019, you are helping Mountbatten to provide our care for free, when Island families need it most. Your fundraising and donations, however big or small, make a real difference.

Dani Johnson, Mountbatten Community Fundraiser, said:
“Think of it as an Island-wide mufti day and dig out an item of yellow clothing to wear from your wardrobe or pop into a Mountbatten shop to pick up a bargain statement piece. Whether you go for a full-on banana suit or simply accent your outfit with a yellow scarf, you’ll be showing your support for Mountbatten and for people across the Isle of Wight community.”
