Hurrah for Ryde Slide
The Ryde Slide has also offered to give us a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of their tickets.

Four daring Wightlink Junior Raiders are being sponsored to do the slide in full kit, one of whom has already raised an amazing £500 before we’ve even put the details on our website!

Please visit our website in the next few days to get details of how to sponsor one of these intrepid youngsters!

Support from JT Zone
The Under 13s Wightlink Junior Raiders would like to thank the JR Zone for hosting their end of season team spirit boosting party.

Although the teams have voted to officially suspend for a year to give us time to try to get our rink back, the children are still very much a team and in spite of having no ice on which to practice, won their last match 6-5 against Bracknell.

We hope to see them back on our own ice soon!
