FROM pirates and banana’s to surfers and Flat Eric, all were at Burry Port harbour on Sunday (Aug 12) as part of the RNLI Open Day and Raft Race.

Despite a glimpse of thunder and lightning as a dark cloud rose above the waters of Burry Port, the rain managed to hold off and the sun even made an appearance, much to the delight of the large crowd who had gathered for the fundraising event.

The event was previously organised for the previous day, Saturday (Aug 11) but it had to be delayed by 24 hours due to the bad weather.

The monies raised will go towards the Burry Port RNLI lifeboat Station Appeal which currently stands at £20,963, with a total aim of £40,000.

A spokesperson for Burry Port RNLI said: “It is an amazing result so far. Many thanks to everyone who has contributed, we are humbled by your support.”

Winners of the raft race by a comfortable margin were LBS Builders Merchants.

RNLI lifeboats were patrolling the waters throughout the race.
