The Price is Wight Charity of the Year

St Catherine's

At The Price Is Wight we are proud to support the community in which we live and work, so we are delighted to launch our Charity of the Year initiative. Throughout this year we will be partnering with St Catherine’s, who offer specialist care, education and therapy to young people with speech, language and communication needs.

Whenever you purchase a deal from TPIW you will now have the option to make a small donation to St Catherine’s. Your donation will help ensure St Catherine’s can create a positive environment in which young people can reach their potential.
