Regional Fundraising Manager Lorraine White said:

“The Christmas drive-in is a real highlight in our fundraising calendar and so many people tell us it has become a family tradition for them, too!

“For many, it now signifies the start of Christmas and what better way to get the season started than with a family trip to our drive-in cinema to see your favourite festive film?

“We're always blown away by the popularity of these events and we’re sure this year’s Christmas drive in will be yet another sell-out success.

“Thank you to everyone who supports Wessex Cancer Trust by coming to our fundraising events, we could not continue to help Island families without you.”

All money raised will help Wessex Cancer Trust support Islanders living with cancer.
