Join Us at our Events

We have an exciting and varied fundraising events calendar; from urging the Island to turn yellow in aid of patients and families, to raising thousands of pounds in the glorious setting of Barton Manor every summer and dashing around Ryde Esplanade dressed as Father Christmas. There's never a dull moment! 

These events are planned and organised by our Fundraising Team at the Hospice, with the much-valued help of our volunteers, who are always a great help on the day as well.

2017 is a special year for Earl Mountbatten and our Island community, as we celebrate our 35th anniversary with a number of additional events planned. Keep checking back to find out more information, or check our Events calendar.

Our main hospice-organised events throughout the year are:

Keep an eye out for us at events including the Isle of Wight Festival, Bestival, Cowes Week and many more!
