The wife of the late Bee Gee star Robin Gibb has visited the children's hospice on the Island to continue his charity work.

Dwina Gibb made a pre-Christmas trip to Rebecca House - her first visit to the Island since the singer died in May.

The pair opened the hospice in 2008 and following Robin's death his family asked for donations in lieu of flowers to go to the facility.

During her visit Dwina met some of the children that are cared for at the hospice and also signed copies of the 2013 calendar which is being sold to raise money.

Dwina says that carrying on the charity work that meant so much to her husband, and being on the Island where Robin was born, was a special experience for her and she's already planning a return visit.
