TWO of Britain's top ice skaters have appeared at a charity gala held in memory of an Isle of Wight mother.
In May 2011, Gemma Quew died suddenly
, aged just 30.
This month, an ice show was held in her memory by the Isle of Wight Ice Dance and Figure Skating Club, raising £875 for Cardiac Risk in the Young.
The gala showcased Island talent from the age of ten through to 18.
Top skaters Oliver Parrington-Tyler and Danielle Harrison gave a showcase of their skills.
The gala also featured a performance by The Wight Jewels.
Four of the performers — Archie Bicknell, Nikita Heathfield, Will Riley and Toni Delap — used the gala as a final practice before competing in the Dundee Open.
It was Archie’s last performance on the Island before he joined the Disney on Ice team.
Andrew Quew, Gemma’s husband, has run a number of fundraising events in memory of his wife.
On Saturday, he featured in The Guardian, sharing the moment he found his two-year-old daughter alone at home with his dead wife.
Andrew has contributed to a booklet called A Partner’s Grief, giving advice on how to cope.
