ISLE of Wight enterprises have shown their support for Mountbatten's annual fundraiser Go Yellow this October, which took place last Friday.

The annual Go Yellow Day was marked with a series of yellow-themed initiatives.

The Big Yellow Tea Party was introduced this year, where family, friends and colleagues were invited to mark the occasion by coming together, either virtually or in small groups.

Dani Johnson, community fundraiser, said: "As ever, we were thrilled to see so many people Go Yellow for Mountbatten.

“Anyone who didn’t get chance last week is still welcome to get involved any time this month, or if you would simply like to make a donation by planting a sunflower in our virtual field, head to our website at

“Thank you to everyone for supporting us.”
