CATERPILLAR MUSIC IOW NEWS
There is always a lot of news for Caterpillar Music IOW including details of our annual events and our competitions.. EVENTS

Caterpillar Music on the Island strongly believe in community and in teaching our children to "give back" to that community and to those less fortunate than themselves. Since 2006 the children from Caterpillar Music have been involved in the fun annual fundraising events that I organise.

To date, Caterpillar Music have raised £10,000.00 for needy Island causes.

2006 we joined together for a "Sponsored Sing Song" which saw the children singing continuously for 15 minutes !! The children raised £700.00 for The Crazy Duck Appeal with all the monies raised going to help needy Island children.

2007 saw the children partake in a "Caterpillar Christmas Crawl" in aid of NICU who are aiming to raise £7000,000.00 for their new NeoNatal Unit at St Mary's Hospital. It was a very wet and windy day but over 150 walkers braved the weather in all their costumes for the 3 mile walk through Parkhurst Forest which enabled us to raise £3000.00 for this much needed Island facility.

2008 brought a bright and sunny day for our event which was a 2 mile "Walk on Wheels" along the seafront in Ryde. We all took part in the walk on decorated bikes, trikes, scooters and buggies and raised £2000.00 for The Rainbow Club - the newly formed Down Syndrome support group here on the Island.

2009 was a chilly day but we soon warmed up as we embarked on our 2 mile "Wilderness Walk" with all the animals dressed up as animals. We raised a further £600.00 for NICU and also funding for the much needed swing base at Beaulieu House who provide respite for Island families.

2010 was the long awaited event which saw the Cosmo Book Launch. The children were invited to dress up as bears and we held bear races in all age groups including Mummy and Daddy bears ! Over 150 of you came along for the afternoon and through the sale of the book, we raised £1000.00 for The Kerry Green Trust who help terminally ill children on the Island fulfil their dreams.

FUNDRAISING IN 2011

THIS YEAR 2011, we celebrated our 5th Birthday Party and organised a huge party at Rookley Country Club on 11th September between 2.00-5.00pm. It was a fantastic day which included some amazing entertainment for the children by Bedazzled Parties, a wonderful dance show, a visit from Haven Falconry, a huge Raffle, Cake Stall, Bottle Tombola, 2nd Hand Stall, Arts & Crafts Workshop, Kids Disco, Crazy Golf, Amusement Arcade, Bouncy Castle, Face Painting, Ice Cream Van, Indoor Fun and Outdoor Fun and lots more...We were delighted to raise £2350.71 with ALL THE PROCEEDS FROM THE DAY WILL GOING NICU. Thank you to all the bakers, makers, donators and to everyone who came along to join in our fun day and for their huge support.
