Now in its 28th year, Earl Mountbatten Hospice’s unique and world famous walk annually attracts thousands of people to walk across the beautiful Isle of Wight countryside to raise money in support of patient and family care provided by Earl Mountbatten Hospice. 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.

Would you like to join our new group? Learn how to use a digital camera? Edit your photos? Enjoy a walk at the same time? We shall grow the availability of cameras to borrow / use each other’s equipment / make available a shared digital platform to enable us to post, show and discuss. We hope to explore the personal and expressive use of our assorted equipment to not only take “happy snaps / picturesque /memorable moments” but also photos with personal and symbolic meaning for us; capturing an emotion, a mood, humanity and mother nature in its many forms; photos to reflect ordinary moments or spectacular importance – for those involved. Digital facilitates experimentation – so let’s explore being creative to produce photos of which we are proud to have captured. If you are interested, please leave your name and telephone number, stating that it is for the photography group and we will be in touch. For Carers please ring to leave your details.
