Schools out for Summer – Week 4

We hope that you are having an amazing Summer and that the slight drop in temperature this week has not affected your plans!  As you know, we had the Raft Race in Burry Port last weekend, and it was postponed from Saturday to Sunday, which caused us some last minute panic, but all turned out perfect in the end.

We had so many people say what a fabulous time they had and our team of ‘Paradise Bananas’ stayed afloat and managed a very respectable 6th place.  We were raising funds for the Burry Port RNLI and Afia Children’s Football Academy Foundation, so we are waiting on the final tally, but from the turn-out, we hope they have done well.  It is always amazing when staff happily turn up and volunteer for out of business activities in the name of community spirit, so huge thanks to our Dawsons team:  Callum Joe, Matthew, Ian, Kim & Aimee in the raft and Naomi for all the organisation  – Top Bananas indeed!

You can see the Burry Port Raft Race gallery of pics at the bottom of the page.  Hope they make you smile as much as they did us!

So what is coming up next weekend for your entertainment…?

We at Dawsons are, again, so proud to be headline sponsors of this event and our director James Dawson explains why

Having sponsored this event for many years as a company, and I myself playing in the tournament many times over the years, never successfully I might add, we understand the importance of the annual event to those living locally and those who travel from further afield to take part. The Crackers’ 7’s is a firm date in our calendar, for which we are proud to be the principal sponsor.  The work that the rugby club do for the local community and for various charities is second to none and that is why we look forward to supporting MIND, this year’s chosen charity, to raise both awareness and much-needed funds for the work they do.’

Please try to come along if you are local, and share this with your friends as you wouldn’t want to miss such a great event!

FINALLY

In our usual fashion, we like to give you something to keep the children amused over the coming week, and this colouring pic is for the toddlers, or those who may have over-indulged in the Crackers’ 7s beer tent!  Happy colouring

BURRY PORT RAFT RACE

Schools out for Summer – Week 3

We are so excited to be, not only Principle Sponsors, but also entrants in this year’s BURRY PORT RAFT RACE, happening today 12th August at 7pm.

Once again we are raising funds for Burry Port RNLI and Afia Children’s Football Academy Foundation.
SHOUT OUT to the other local firms sponsoring the event:

  • Burns Pet Nutrition,
  • Celtic Couriers,
  • Barberry Construction,
  • The Marine Group – Burry Port Marina
  • Burry Port Co-Op
  • Llanelli Star
  • LBS Builders Merchants
  • Pembrey & Burry Port Town Council
  • Parker Plant Hire

So the raft building is complete.  I am a little worried (although I am not on the raft so it will be quite funny if we sink) but one of our building team mentioned the lack of silicon used to secure the framework, I am thinking “9 hours to build and 9 seconds to sink” but will wait and see or sea….

So the raft to look out for, either flying past the finishing line or flailing around in the water is this little beauty.  I am thinking that the theme could be ‘Who wants to live on a desert island?’ and I understand the crew will be suitable attired, so let’s hope the sun shines or they may be a little chilly…

FINALLY

In our usual fashion, we like to give you something to keep the children amused over the coming week, and whilst we would have loved to remain on theme with a picture of a raft, we stretched it one step further with a fabulous schooner!

NOW please remember to send us a pic of your finished efforts, and we’ll let you off if you don’t want to share your age!

If you do not have a printer at home, just pop down to our stall at the Raft Race from 2pm to collect one.

See you next week,

 

Jane

Our staff have enjoyed attending school fetes and fayres across Swansea and Llanelli this month helping raise much needed funds for the PTAs by bringing along one of the DAWSON’s brightly coloured pool cars, filled with balloons to provide a ‘guess the amount’ game.

We are already looking at how we can bring Dawsons to schools during ht enxt academic year, so if your local school could benefit from Naomi attending with the marketing team, then just drop her an email:  naomi@dawsonsproperty.co.uk
