The Isle of Pink got off to a glowing start this year with Northwood House and St Mary’s Church being lighted up in pink to mark the occasion.

The Isle of Pink continues

Thank you so much to everyone at the Northwood House Estate and Happy Daze for making this possible!

The Isle of Wight Pink is looking good. We had a busy time on the island decorating trees, chalk spray painting, putting up banners, and battling the wind on Yarmouth Pier while tying ribbons to the lampposts!

Some fantastic supporters also decorated the Umbrella Tree in East Cowes as a joint celebration; the tree is 100 years old this year.

So if you’re out and about on the island and see our handiwork, please share a photo with us. And don’t forget to use the hashtag #isleofpink.

Pink on Wight, our amazing volunteer group, were at Bestival this weekend, entertaining festival-goers with their Play Your Cards Right and Giant Buzzer Game. Their face-painting was as popular as ever with people queuing up to get their faces decorated.

The group have been busy this week, as they were also at Seaview Wildlife Centre helping out with their Pink Day, which raised over £300. In turn, they were helped by Elvis the Chicken, who kindly took time out of his busy schedule to select a raffle winner…

The Pink Window Display Competition is also in full swing; don’t forget to vote for your favourite in the People’s Choice Award. The votes are already rolling in, and if you’re a shop please send us a picture of your window, we’d love to see it!

See you next week for more Isle of Pink updates!
