Each September, the Isle of Wight turns pink to support breast cancer research. Find out how you can get involved in the activities and learn more about all of the pink fun that was had last year.

Every year the Isle of Wight turns pink for the whole of September to support Breast Cancer Now. There are lots of events to get involved with, from wear it pink days to quizzes and competitions, so if you’d like to help paint the isle pink for Breast Cancer Now, use our online form to register your interest.

How you can get involved


Our Volunteer Group on the island are always looking for new volunteers to help at collections and events such as Bestival and Riverfest. Just a few hours a month would make a real difference. Contact us to find out more.
