The annual turning of the Isle of Wight into the Isle of Pink for Breast Cancer Campaign is sadly over and the island is slowly turning back to its normal colour now after the whole of September.

The Isle of Pink 2014

Pink windows

We were amazed at the inventiveness and range on the window displays this year, the amount of effort put in was brilliant. Judging was a very hard task as ever, and we would have liked to award a prize to everyone.

The winners are all listed on the Isle of Pink page and you can see all of the pictures on our Pinterest board.


Two hugely popular events took place again on the island this year. The Pink Ponda Quiz at the Ponda Rosa in Ryde, where everyone tested their general knowledge skills.

Then on the Saturday lots of teams from across the island descended on Ryde Superbowl to compete in Bowl a Strike with Pink on Wight. The bowling champions of 2014 were the Wight Blues, congratulations; we hope to see you next year to defend your title!

Both these events helped to raise a brilliant £1,300! Thank you so much to everyone who came along.

Thank yous
