Isle of Wight based WightAID who’s primary purpose is to provide funding to charities, groups and organisations that aim to improve the lives of people living on the Isle of Wight have come on board to support Shanklin Regatta to with a grant of £500.

Shanklin Regatta is hosted this year on what is known as the Stink Pot Car Park at the bottom of Hope Road in Shanklin, this is a new location after years of the regatta being held on the pier apron where Shanklin Pier once stood.

The grant of £500 will be a great help for our regatta as we require new road side banners and help with cost towards other posters that we display around the Island.

Shanklin Regatta is a free family fun day and evening with lots of activities and entertainment to keep the whole family entertained.

We do ask, if people can help support the event by giving a donation in our collection buckets on the day that would go a long way to keep the regatta running  

Shanklin Regatta returns on August 8th from 10.30am confirmed so far…………
