50 climbers took to the wall for this year’s sponsored climb with the youngest competitor aged three and the oldest – 72.

West Wight Sports and Community Centre’s events coordinator, Claire Treasure’s been speaking exclusively to Isle of Wight Radio, she said,

“Saturday was a great day..Everyone seemed to really enjoy the day and I know we all had fun…We had various volunteers helping out [on the day] and the event sponsor ‘PO41 Coffee House’ provided cakes and sandwiches.”

Isle of Wight Radio’s Iona Stewart-Richardson tackled the wall -14 times in 30 minutes.
