Island Con 2018

Posted in on

Sight for Wight were delighted to attend Island Con for the first time this year!

Chris Cane, Marketing, Communications & Fundraising Manager, attended both days, along with Kris Stevens, Events Ambassador.  Joining them on the Sunday were fellow Event Ambassadors Ruth and Fletch Hollingshead.  It was a fantastic weekend with lots of interest in Sight for Wight's latest alien volunteer; Events Ambassador - 'Dalek' who was a crowd puller where people were able to have their photo taken with the Dalek.  Over £100 was raised thanks to the generosity of Island Con attendees.

There were many cosplay characters and celebrities from the world of comics, sci-fi and television and the weather couldn't have been better.  

Sight for Wight would like to thank everyone who came over to say hello and donate generously to our charity.
