A charity screening of the latest Bond film, Quantum of Solace, raised over £1,500 for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice. The event was given by Seaworld, and for £17.50 guests had the rare privilege of seeing the film, screened in the deluxe suite at Cine World the night before it went on general release. The evening wasn’t just about Daniel Craig on the silver screen, though. Here was Bond in the flesh: - Steve Apsey, head of Yellow House at Sandown High School took on the role for the evening. A vodka martini was given to everyone as they arrived – what else? And the Aston Martin for the evening was on loan from its owner, Martin Grinsted of Ryde. There was even an Aston DBS bonnet on display, made by Island firm Gurit, which makes the carbon panels for the Aston DBS as used in the film.
