Wirral businessman, Les Perry has joined The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race supporting and raising money for a local charity, Charlottes Brightside. Charlottes Brightside support children and young people in and around New Brighton on Wirral by providing a wide range of activities to positively engage them. To help raise much-needed funds for this superb organisation, Les has invited local businesses to buy a logo space on a double-sided flag that will be flown at every possible chance during his epic journey in the challenging yacht race.
There has been a superb response for the flag and businesses and people who want to donate can still do so by visiting the Just giving page here – https://localgiving.org/charity/charlottesbrightside/
Les is joining the Clipper Race on the Southern Ocean leg when he boards the 70-foot ocean-going yacht as it sails from South Africa to Australia. With space at a premium, the full-size flag will stow-away in Les’ luggage and be flown at every opportunity during the epic journey.
Charlottes Brightside is a youth club, based in New Brighton, Wirral who support underprivileged children from around the area. The charity was established in 2011 in memory of Charlotte Churchill, a 19yr old young woman who passed away in April of the same year as a result of a tragic car accident.
Charlottes Brightside has very clear aims to help young people advance in life by providing a space for recreational and leisure time activities that improve their conditions of life and by providing support and activities to develop their skills, capacities and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as mature and responsible individuals.
Les Perry, a well-known and respected Roofing Business owner from Wirral, has joined the Clipper Round The World Race, a fleet of eleven 70-foot ocean racing yachts who race around the world in a 40,000 nautical mile endurance. As an experienced sailor, this will be the ultimate test for Les as he and his fellow crewmates battle the Southern Ocean Leg from South Africa across the Southern Ocean to Australia. They will endure some of the biggest waves and strongest winds on the planet, in one of the remotest parts of the world. Les is crewing onboard the yacht named “Imagine Your Korea”
