Local Businesses “Join” Les and The Clipper Round the World Race

Wirral businesses have come together in support of a local charity, Charlottes’ Brightside, by sponsoring a space on a flag that will join the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. The idea for local sponsorship of the flag is the brainchild of local businessman Les Perry and Charlotte’s Brightside founder, Angie Churchill. 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. Les is an active supporter of Charlottes Brightside and is delighted to help raise much-needed funds for this wonderful charity that helps support underprivileged children from the New Brighton area of Wirral.

Local businesses have been invited to buy a logo space on the flag, an ideal way in which to support the local charity and to raise awareness for their business through promotional and photographic opportunities during Les’ time on board. There has been a fantastic response to the appeal and the great news is that your business can still help……there are a few remaining spaces on the flag OR you can donate directly through the Just Giving page links below.
