Proceeds from the glittering event held in Westwoodside this year amounted to £9755, and this sum was topped up to the £10,000 mark by an anonymous donator.

Chair of the Pride of the Isle committee, Leesa Sharpe, said after making the announcement via social media: “I am totally totally speechless! Thankyou all so much.”

It was the second annual community awards celebration, held in memory of the late Alexander Strong of Epworth.
