Charity performers are set to experience a sunny sailing as the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company sponsors their travel to and from the Isle of Man.

Colin Gold and Dangerous Curves will be performing in the Island in September and October in a variety of events hosted by the Sunset Island Festival.

The charity is specifically raising funds towards the salary of a lymph oedema nurse at the hospice, which would offer palliative care to patients after surgery for breast cancer.

Isle of Man Steam Packet Company Chief Executive Mark Woodward said: “We are delighted to be able to show our support for such a worthwhile charity. We wish them every success with their events.”

Entertainer Colin Gold will stage a cabaret at the charity’s Tropical Ball on September 6 and at the Posties’ Walk on September 7. He will also compère and sing at the Chocoholics Caribbean Night on September 12.

Singing trio Dangerous Curves will perform at the Claremont Hotel on October 25 and the Manx Legion on October 26.

The festival’s event’s organizer Carole Male said: “They are going to be terrific events and we couldn’t have done it without the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company doing this.”
