Botanica Supporting the Olympics!


Botanica support for equestrian arena team at 2012 Olympics


County Down based company Botanica International Ltd has weighed in to sponsor the Arena Team who will play a major role during the equestrian events at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

The internationally acclaimed company has provided branded clothing and a mini-bus which will be at the disposal of the 16-strong team during the Olympics Games.

The Arena Team, which is headed up by Raymond Jess, and son Nigel, from Mossvale Equestrian Centre in Dromara, set off from Sprucefield on their chance of a lifetime adventure. The team includes equine enthusiasts from throughout Northern Ireland. A delegation of well-wishers included Botanica representative Ashley Bingham; Miss Ulster Courtenay Fitzpatrick; and Lisburn City Council’s Mayor Alderman William Leathem.

“We have been preparing for the 2012 Olympic Games for over twelve months, and although we have worked at equestrian events throughout Ireland, the UK and Europe, this is definitely the biggest stage of all!” said Raymond Jess.

“It is a great honour, and we are certainly looking forward the challenge. The eyes of the world will be on the Olympic Games, and it will be a great experience for us all. It’s an opportunity of a lifetime.”

The Mossvale Arena Party has built up a reputation for being a slick and specialist team. Their job will be to ensure the smooth running of the show jumping classes, from the course building aspect, along with dressage and other eventing competitions. Commencing on Saturday, July 28, the Olympic equestrian events will take place at the 183-acre Greenwich Park which is just 20 minutes from central London.

Sean Cooney, managing director of Botanica International Ltd said: ”We are delighted to offer our financial backing to the Mossvale Arena Team. They have established a strong reputation and have attended major shows throughout the province, Great Britain, Europe and the USA and Canada. 

“The Olympic Games gives the team members a huge opportunity to meet the world’s top riders, officials and other VIPs who will be attending the event. I wish them well, and I know they will be great ambassadors for Northern Ireland. “

Botanica International Ltd was founded by Sean Cooney in 2005, and manufactures a wide range of herbal skin care creams and washes for animals and humans, as well as a variety of specialist beauty skincare products.

The Botanica brand has grown from strength-to-strength thanks to growing public awareness of the benefits of holistic treatments. Extensive investment, coupled with ongoing research and development, has led to the company’s natural and non-toxic product portfolio.

All products are designed for topical application, and include natural ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Tea Tree Oil, Comfrey and Oil of Lavendar. The Botanica range is widely available from stockists throughout Ireland, and the company is exporting to global markets including the USA and China.
