About the event
In 2021, the annual Isle of Wight walk in support of Retina UK returned with a difference. Starting at Ryde pier, the five mile route followed a scenic walk to The Old Fort in Seaview before returning back along the coast to Ryde and the finish line. With spectacular views, this was a fun-filled family day out!
By taking part in the Hope to Seaview events, walkers help Retina UK to fund medical research. Together, we can increase the understanding of inherited sight loss and accelerate the search for treatments for the future.
The Hope to Seaview series of walks are organised on behalf of Retina UK by volunteers Colin and Linda McArthur.
If you’d like more information on the event or have any questions about taking part, contact our volunteer organisers, Colin and Linda, by emailing email@example.com or calling 07935 747332.

Over 70 walkers returned to the Isle of Wight for Hopefully to Seaview 2021 and took on a fantastic five mile route in support of Retina UK.
“It was a brilliant atmosphere and wonderful that people were able to come together for the first time in a year and a half (socially distanced of course). We are very grateful to family and friends and supporters for their enthusiastic response and our wonderful helpers who made the day possible. We are also very grateful to Dan and Sam at the Alamo for staging the after event reception with free food and to local businesses for donating so many great prizes for the raffle. Together, we’ve already raised over £4,100 to support research into inherited sight loss and Sandown Rotary Club have kindly pledged to donate a further £1,000! We’re delighted to have raised so much during a difficult year!” Colin and Linda
