Cowes Week Fireworks Mystery Saviour

Cowes Week Fireworks Mystery Saviour

COWES Week’s fireworks display has been saved — thanks to a £25,000 cash pledge from an anonymous donor. Organisers of the regatta, Cowes Week Ltd, confirmed yesterday (Thursday) the event, which traditionally marks the end of the world-famous regatta in August, would now take place. The £25,000 donation means half the cost of staging the display has now been found. Cowes Week Ltd has already said it would contribute £5,000 towards the costs and more than £3,500 in pledges have already been given on a Facebook site, each saying they would pay £1 towards the cost of the fireworks. Cowes Week Ltd has set up a Paypal site so the people who have pledged to donate can contribute towards the cost of the display. Cowes Week Ltd chief executive Stuart Quarrie told the County Press: “We are 100 percent confident it will happen, but only if pledged donations materialise and new donors come forward from the community.”
