Dawsons is looking forward to being the main sponsor of the Burry Port Fun Raft Race which is now only days away.
The race takes place on Saturday, 22nd July at 6pm and is in aid of Burry Port RNLI & Afia Banjul Children’s Football Academy, The Gambia and promises to be a fantastic day out for the family.
“We are delighted to be sponsoring the Raft Race especially as it is raising money for such good causes,” said Chris Hope, Dawsons Senior Partner.
“One of our offices is in Llanelli and many of our staff are from the Burry Port area, so we had no hesitation in getting involved.
“It promises to be a fun day for everyone and I know many of our staff are looking forward to getting involved and raising valuable money for charity.”
Added Chris: “Why not come down and support the raft race in the beautiful harbour setting of Burry Port.”
The event is being covered by TV, radio and the written media and promises to be a memorable evening.
You can enter a team made up of 4 to 10 adults, aged 16 years and over. Entry is £50 and each team is being asked to raise a minimum of £100 deposit.
All crews are required to design and build their own rafts and paddles using begged, borrowed but not stolen materials.
Awards are on offer including best dressed raft, last raft over the line and first to sink.
There will be food and drink available, live music and special guests: Cyril The Swan, Cochyn The Dragon (Scarlets mascot) and your favourite characters from The Party Factory. There will also be children’s inflatables there.
As well as Dawsons the event is also being sponsored by the Llanelli Star, JR Events & Catering, Burns Pet Nutrition and Burry Port Co-op.
