5th Feb, 2014
Recently launched performance sailwear company Hudson Wight is supporting the sailing charity Sail 4 Cancer at a range of UK regattas this year. Participants at a number of events where Sail 4 Cancer is the chosen charity will be able to win a set of Hudson Wight HW1s by entering the charity’s various prize draws, competitions and event raffles. The charity will be providing a range of Hudson Wight prizes at industry regattas ranging from the Profile Cup and Legal Cup organised by Britannia Corporate Events, to the Henry Coanda Challenge andTorbay Week, one of the oldest regattas in the country.
“The support of Hudson Wight will enable us to raise funds to provide much-needed respite breaks for families affected by cancer. This year we hope to help a record number of families,” commented Lizette van Niekerk, Fundraising Manager of Sail 4 Cancer.
Sail 4 Cancer has also joined the Hudson Wight Affiliate Scheme that allows supporters buying their sailing clothing and accessories on the Hudson Wight website to use the Affiliate Code: SAIL 4 CANCER, giving them a 10% discount on the purchase and the charity will then receive 15% of every sale.
“We are delighted to include Sail 4 Cancer as our chosen charity for 2014. We only sell direct and our Affiliate Scheme is at the heart of that business model. It allows us to give 15% of all our sales to our affiliates who are typically volunteer run Clubs and Class Associations. The aim is build a top-level brand with the sport of sailing as a key stakeholder in our success. With that approach we hope to give more people a chance to get out on the water,” said Hudson Wight’s Managing Director Jamie Scrimgeour.
