SUPERHEROES and rock stars partied alongside doctors and lifeguards at a charity fancy dress night.
Kurt Cobain, Batman, Michael Jackson and Top Gear’s The Stig were among those at the When I Grow Up, I Want to Be themed fundraiser.
Held at King Harry’s Bar, Shanklin, the sell-out event raised around £4,000 for the Breast Care Nurses Trust, at St Mary’s Hospital.
It was organised by Jamie White and Hannah Cook in memory of Jamie’s mother, Tricia White, who died two years ago.
Jamie, 28, of Shanklin, said: "It was an absolutely fantastic turnout and I’m so pleased with the feedback I’ve had. Everyone really enjoyed themselves, and mum would have been so proud to see everyone come together for such a worthy cause. The big question now is how are we going to top it next year?"
Premier League football clubs including Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Aston Villa donated signed footballs and pennants for an auction, and raffle prizes were supplied by Island businesses and pub regulars.
The food was provided by burger van proprietor Michael Ridge, who donated £1 from every burger sold to the appeal.
"I want to say a big thank you to everyone who supported the event or donated prizes. It was a brilliant effort," said Jamie.
