Dawsons Property is delighted to be the main sponsor of the Burry Port Harbour Raft Race on Saturday, July 22.
The estate agency, which has one of its main branches in Llanelli, is heading up the event which is raising money not only for the Burry Port RNLI but also the Afia Banjul Football Academy in Gambia.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be sponsoring this event in Burry Port but we will also to be taking part in the raft race itself,” said Dawsons Senior Partner Chris Hope.
“Many of our staff are local to Burry Port so it was natural for us to support this fun and very worthy event which is going to be a great day for the family.
“The Llanelli and Burry Port areas are very important to our business and we cover right down to Carmarthen.”
Added Chris: “Why not come down and support the raft race in the beautiful harbour setting of Burry Port.”
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.
