WHILE many people will be relaxing this bank holiday weekend, more than 500 people will be taking part in the Isle of Wight Challenge — a gruelling 70-mile trek around the Island.
One team attempting the epic challenge, which starts today (Saturday) is Team STP!, a multi-national group of colleagues from Whiteley-based Sandberg Translation Partners, who are walking on behalf of Island-based charity, Caring Cancer Trust.
It supports children and teenagers with cancer by providing holidays and activities to help them recuperate and rebuild their self-confidence and happiness.
Island resident and team member, Majken Hindø, heard about the charity from family who volunteer at its shop in Ryde, and so far the team has raised £2,000.
