Around 60 people, supported by 10 dogs, took part in the Pink Power charity jog/walk/trot charity event in Shanklin on Sunday.

It was organised by Breast Cancer Now with participants taking part in the two-and-a-half-mile event starting at the Salix Cafe at Hope Beach along to the revetment near Yaverland car park.

Organiser Sarah Tyrell-Jones, the local community fundraiser for Breast Cancer Now who is due to take part in the London Marathon later this month, said: “It turned out a very beautiful walk with lots of pink clothes on display.

“We had an awesome time raising £253, which brings our total fundraising to more than £44,000.”
