Congratulations to our winner! 
We are pleased to announce the winner of the Walk the Wight prize draw with HF Holidays for a self-guided walking holiday for two adults is Marisa Margetts! 

Marisa is delighted to be the winner of the prize and has chosen a three night escape to Cornwall with HF Holidays this October. “I have always loved the rugged Cornish coastline, some of which is breath-taking. Of course, when I saw St.Ives was one of the HF Holidays destinations, there was no match".

Marisa walked 14 miles from Carisbrooke to the Needles with her friend and her sister and raised over £250 for Earl Mountbatten Hospice.  “I'm really proud of myself at the age of 63, completing the 14 miles; it was hard work but so rewarding. I loved walking up Tennyson Down, the scenery is fantastic and also thinking of the inspirations Tennyson took for his poems. It was challenging walking up Brook Down, which was real hard work, I had to push myself all the way up. I was so glad when I'd finally reached the top!” she said.

Marisa is looking forward to taking part in Walk the Wight 2018, “Next year, I want to do the whole walk (26 miles) and raise even more money for the Hospice!” she added.
