Go Yellow for Mountbatten

1 min read

Mountbatten has invited the Isle of Wight to Go Yellow.

The charity that runs the Island’s only hospice wants Islanders to get behind the annual fundraiser by planning an event or activity themed around yellow this weekend.

New features for this year include The Big Yellow Tea Party, organised as either a socially distanced event, in family bubbles or virtually, with details on how to sign up on Mountbatten’s website.

“We are really excited for the return of Go Yellow,” said Mountbatten’s Community Fundraiser, Dani Johnson. “We want people to have lots of fun with it. IW Observer readers can make a real difference to Mountbatten’s work by getting involved – and have some fun at the same time.

“There are lots of options, from bathing in custard to selling yellow cakes and wearing yellow outfits for the day. While our official Go Yellow day is today (Friday), we would love people to join us over the weekend and really help us make a difference to those we support.”

Posters, bunting, cake flags and other yellow accessories, including a special pack for organising a Big Yellow Tea Party, are available on Mountbatten’s website to download.

A virtual sunflower field is also online for people to ‘plant’ a sunflower, perhaps with a special message in memory of a loved one. Mountbatten’s online shop is also selling 2020 sunflowers and other gifts for people to buy and wear for Go Yellow.
