RYDE Pierhead will be transformed into a pop-up cinema under the stars in aid of the Joe Ellis Trust.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon will be screened at the fundraising event, organised by Wightlink with the County Press and IW Radio, from 9.15pm, next Saturday, July 5.

Media relations manager Chris Cowley said: "The evening will give people the chance to catch up with the latest Transformer movie before the release of the new film Transformers: Age of Extinction later this month. With the movie starting as the sun goes down it should be a really special evening out.

"We hope to create a really unique and atmospheric venue to watch the film."

The free event has space for 200 people and those with tickets are asked to make a donation to Joe.

To apply for tickets, visit: wightlink.co.uk/piercinema.

A raffle and tarot card readings will be held at the Vine Inn, St Helens in aid of teenage cancer sufferer Joe on Sunday.

The fundraiser is being done as part of the St Helens Village Fair.

The raffle prizes were donated by Island businesses. Tarot card readings will be done by Morwenna, for a minimum £5 donation, from 3pm.

Also in aid of Joe will be a day of live music at the Bargeman’s Rest, Newport, on Sunday, July 6, from 1pm.

The many confirmed acts include the Dollymops, Duveaux, Kat Skellington and Headfunk Collective.
