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…
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,
