Regatta is currently raising awareness to the dangers of insect bites not only abroad but also in the UK.
The Health Protection Agency suggests that there could be up to 3000 new cases of Lyme Disease occurring in the UK alone every year, and it can be difficult to diagnose as the symptoms can easily be confused with other conditions. Lyme Disease has been in the spotlight recently with stories of adults and children becoming extremely ill and even paralysed after experiencing tick bites in the UK.
The best and most effective way to prevent Lyme disease is to wear appropriate protective clothing. Craghoppers NosiLife clothing is the world’s first and only permanent insect-protective clothing, offering protection from critters such as mosquitoes, midges and ticks which can carry diseases and deadly viruses such as Malaria, the Zika Virus and Lyme Disease.
Our local Regatta store is stocking Craghoppers NosiLife clothing and is offering customers the chance to win a full kit of NosiLife protective clothing, if you can face your fears and enter the Crunchy Critter Challenge. Come down to Regatta on Saturday 28th July to take part!
Whoever eats the most critters in 10 seconds will win a full Nosi life kit including the famous NosiLife adventure shirt, zip off trousers, hoody and hat.
