Row to Bestival raises cash for KissyPuppy

TEAMS taking part in a fundraising voyage to Bestival, on board two classic rowing boats, have made it to the Isle of Wight.

The challenge was in aid of the Sophie Rolf charity KissyPuppy and on board one of the boats was Sophie’s father Aaron, while Earl Mountbatten Hospice chief executive Jo Blackburn was on board the other, in the boys V girls challenge.

The teams made their way Hurst Castle to Colwell Bay.

Volunteers will be selling Sophie's Butterflies today (Thursday) to Bestival-goers onboard Wightlink's Portsmouth to Fishbourne ferry and Hovertravel's Southsea to Ryde crossing.

They will also be on hand at the festival itself.
