The Needles raise £2000 for Island charities

08th September 2015

The Needles Landmark Attraction has raised £2,000 for Isle of Wight charities during its summer season.

Throughout August The Needles was the setting for a fireworks spectacular, Music & Magic in the Skies, and each week the event raised funds for a different local charity.

The world-famous landmark site worked with Earl Mountbatten Hospice; Beaulieu House; Challenge and Adventure; Ability Dogs 4 Young People and Youth Trust IW with each day’s celebrations themed accordingly.

Marino Zanti, general manager at The Needles Landmark Attraction, said:

“In total we raised over £2,000 for these incredibly worthy causes and also put the charities’ messages in front of an audience of over 50,000 people.

“We hope that the much-needed funds and awareness generated will assist these amazing organisations in going from strength-to-strength over the coming months.

“The staff here at The Needles also threw themselves into the fundraising spirit with the chairlift team romping ahead in the fundraising stakes.”
