Our sponsors

We are extremely fortunate to have the unwavering support of many businesses, organisations and individuals. It’s very hard to single any one out; everybody’s contribution is important, but we'd like to give particular mention to Ron Bowler and Jewson, for support with sponsorship, signage, storage, deliveries and so much more; The Needles Landmark Attraction, who provide us with sponsorship and the most spectacular vista with which to finish the walk; Red Funnel and Hovertravel for their sponsorship and for getting our walkers across the water; Southern Vectis for getting them across the Island and Island Roads for keeping them safe. The IW County Press for their sponsorship of the medals and support as a media partner, alongside IW Radio who cover the event from January to May with interviews, adverts and, on the day of the event, coverage across their shows, including a live broadcast from the Needles finish. This year we are very pleased to welcome Swinton Insurance to our family of supporters and thank them for their sponsorship of the medals. 

Of course, an event of this scale just doesn’t happen without help from an army of volunteers, and we receive massive support from the Island’s Rotary and Lions clubs, as well as members of the Round TableIsland FreemasonsVentnor Rugby ClubGKN Systems, Ryde Sea Cadets, Army Cadets and Army Reserves to make up our team of over 300 marshals and event staff.

And, not forgetting, our faithful Walk the Wight committee who help steer the ship from September through to May, giving us their time, knowledge and expertise.
