Each year LEXXER Solutions picks a number of charities to support in both financial and practical terms. It’s our way of giving something back to the sector we enjoy working with so much. It’s also a great way to get out of the office and to improve the skills and experience of the whole team.
This year we have chosen Lough Erne Heritage as one of our designated charities in recognition of the great work they have done in not only preserving heritage but putting it into action. Their Heritage Regattas have revived a traditions last seen in the 1880s and brought boats back to popular use.
While working with them on a number of projects we have been infected with their passion for wooden boats and we share their vision to see them not as museum pieces but as working vessels once more restored to the heart of community life. Our contribution this year will be to help them with their marketing and promotions. While it is late in the day we hope that other businesses will join us in supporting this worthwhile cause and share our vision for the Heritage Regattas as the perfect showcase not just for heritage boats but what’s best about Fermanagh.
The Regatta Season has just started and we look forward to a summer of community involvement and enjoyment culminating in the Award of the Lough Erne Heritage Regatta Championship Cup in September. The event is only in its second year and has already received support from Fermanagh and Omagh Council, as well as buy in from a number of local communities and businesses.
The Regatta Season allows many local villages to play host to this unique heritage event as part of their wider summer activities. The vision is to build this year upon year to make it the main lough based event in the Fermanagh Calendar.
The competition will again be fierce with new teams representing local businesses and groups. The aim is to get everyone involved in this great event. The Fermanagh cots are a real piece of history lovingly brough back to life and use by the group. So our challenge to sponsors and teams is: “ Have You Cot What it Takes” to be a part of this unique event.
The best way to put heritage into action is to sponsor the Regattas for the 2018 season. A range of sponsorship packages are available and can be tailored to your community, business or organisation. These are listed as Gold, Silver and Bronze with prices to suit every business.
Sponsorship gives your business the best possible exposure and will make a real different to his local event.
So Join the Winning Team today and let us get you involved.
