Shell out and help Isle of Wight teenager Joe Ellis

REVELLERS heading to the Isle of Wight Festival today (Friday) can have a cracking time before they even see any bands.

Police officers are raising money at Fairlee Service Station by letting the public throw eggs and wet sponges at them, in return for donations to the Joe Ellis Trust.

The money is in aid of the Isle of Wight teenager whose family needs to raise £100,000 to fund specialist cancer treatment.

They will be at the Newport garage, close to the Isle of Wight Festival site at Seaclose, until around 5pm.

The trust announced this morning that they have raised more than £20,000 in just over a week.
