Founded by Bill Bradley & Frank Stevens, what started out as a small team building excercise for Morey’s staff (now known as Jewson) has grown to become the largest fundrasing event on the Island and the largest sponsored walk of its kind in Europe. Every year, people who take part in Earl Mountbatten Hospice’s Walk the Wight raise a phenomenal amount of money, which enables us to continue to develop our services for Islanders and their families when they need us most, wherever they are on the Island. Lush, green countryside, historic villages, famous landmarks, magestic chalk cliffs and coastal views with shimmering blue seas – Walk the Wight has all this and more! With a choice of five walks and distances, people of all ages and abilities can take part, making this a real community event.

Highly Sensitive Workshop* – Research clearly demonstrates that twenty percent of the population process sensory information at a deep level. Much deeper than the remaining 80% who are unable to understand why we experience the world in a different way to the majority. Without knowing about sensory processing and how it can impact on you emotionally and psychologically, many people are left bewildered by the intensity of life – or feeling different in some way. This way of being affects both men and women equally. We are only just beginning to understand what being HSP means for a child and how it can impact on their wellbeing. We need to know what we can do to help them. This workshop explores what it means to process information at a deep level.
