Regatta, Britain's best loved outdoor clothing, footwear and accessories brand and an avid supporter of outdoor pursuits, is pleased to announce that the National Trust’s campaign to ‘Save England’s White Cliffs of Dover’ has been a success.
Only recently, a stretch of the coastline was put up for sale, which prompted the National Trust to campaign to raise funds to secure the remaining 1.35km of headland that they didn’t own, in efforts to preserve the future of this historical site for generations to come.
To date, more than £1.2m has been donated by organisations and the public alike to ensure that the White Cliffs of Dover are protected for future generations to enjoy. Regatta donated funds via their charitable arm, The Regatta Foundation, as they fervently believe that the White Cliffs of Dover are one of the UK’s most iconic landmarks of historical importance.
Keith Black, CEO of Regatta, said:
“I’m thrilled that the National Trust has reached their goal to protect the White Cliffs of Dover. Many families and outdoor lovers over the years have enjoyed visiting this area of outstanding natural beauty. We felt that it was important to back this campaign via a charitable donation to help to ensure that we can experience this landscape for many years to come. We’re encouraging everyone to get out and explore this area if they haven’t done so already to appreciate some of the best scenic views in the UK.”
Stretching over an expanse of 10 miles, these breath-taking chalk cliffs have been inspiring people since they were discovered in 55BC. The cliffs were made famous in 1944 with MGM’s release of the popular wartime film “The White Cliffs of Dover”, and singer and song writer Vera Lynn found a hit with a song of the same name in 1941, which many still sing today. .
