The Gala in aid of the Earl Mountbatten Hospice

The Gala seeks to unite innovative dancers in the name of charity.

We did it!

On 27th Jul 2015 we successfully raised £260 with 7 supporters in 56 days

Project aim


The Earl Mountbatten Hospice is the only hospice on the Isle of Wight. It cares for patients suffering from or affected by life-shortening illnesses and provides vital help and advice for their families, friends and carers. My grandfather was cared for by the wonderful staff of the Earl Mountbatten Hospice. They provided terrific support to my family when we needed it most. To say ‘thank you’, I want to raise as much money as possible to help the Earl Mountbatten Hospice continue its outstanding work. I want to put my talents to work and help raise money for them, so they can be there for you or your loved ones if needed.


The Gala is a charity event with a high cultural calibre. With a diverse repertoire performed by an acclaimed and international group of dancers, the project seeks to bring the most exciting developments on the european stage to Medina Theatre.  

Born and raised in the Isle of Wight, today I am a professional dancer with the Stuttgart Ballet in Germany. To raise money for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice I am organising a gala at the Medina Theatre, Isle of Wight, on 1-2 August 2015, showcasing some of today's most exciting and talented young artists. My dancer friends have agreed to perform in the Gala free of charge. Last year, they helped me raise over £4500 for the Hospice. This year I’d like to raise even more but to do that, I need your help. By making a pledge you will help ensure that the maximum amount of money raised from ticket sales goes to the Hospice. Your pledge will help cover the essential costs of running the Gala, like transport for the dancers. Any help you can give will be very much appreciated.
