Cowes Week 'to hold fireworks display'

A spectacular fireworks display will take place on the Isle of Wight during Cowes Week as long as the businesses involved in the event provide the financial backing.

Sales and marketing director of Cowes Week Ltd Michelle Warner explained that for the last two years, a mystery donor has stepped up to offer the money needed to put on the fireworks at the end of the sailing regatta.

But she pointed out that additional help is required from the community, as well as those organisations who are already involved in Cowes Week.

Speaking to the Isle of Wight County Press, Ms Warner said: "We have a structured fundraising campaign and we are hoping people will step forward and help to support the firework display."

She added that any money left over from fundraising activities for the 2011 Cowes Week will go towards next year's display.

Aberdeen Asset Management is sponsoring the event, which is set to take place from August 6th to 13th.
