SALLY, Lady Grylls, and Isle of Wight Auctions are hosting an Auction of Promises at Bembridge Village Hall in aid of the Dementia UK Isle of Wight Admiral Nurses Appeal.

Other promises up for grabs include a trial flight from the IW Airport, a silent disco offered by local DJ and musician Mark Dicker, a bouquet from Bembridge Flower Shop, hampers donated by The Elms Nursing Home and the Co-op in Bembridge, and a garden ornament from The Secret Garden in Bembridge.

The Hovercraft VIP Experience includes a behind-the-scenes look at the world’s longest operational hovercraft service and a chance to meet the pilots and crew who fly across the Solent.

The auction takes place on Saturday, October 19, at 7.30pm.

Julia Thornton, who runs Isle of Wight Auctions with partner and auctioneer Nigel Montague, said: "We are hoping to auction as many promises as we can, so if anybody can offer anything, big or small, we would love to hear from you.

"It could be a dog walk, window clean, overnight stay, shampoo and set — all donations will be gratefully received.

Admiral Nurses work together with families to provide the one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions they need to live more positively with dementia.
