Raft racing enthusiasts boost funds for Minehead RNLI
3:00pm Sunday 27th October 2013 in Somerset
RAFT racing enthusiasts from Roadwater’s Valiant Soldier Inn handed over a £1,000 cheque for the RNLI, their fourth in as many years.
Money was raised through a whole host of events including the sponsorship of the Valiant’s entries in this year’s Blue Anchor to Minehead raft race.
The cheque was presented to lifeboat station official Derek Williams, who is retiring as raft race organiser after next summer’s event.
He has been running the race for 31 years.
Mr Williams said: “It’s so gratifying to be able to receive a donation like this from a group of people who have not only supported the race by taking part for many years, but make sure their efforts raise as much as possible for us.
“We are immensely grateful to the racers and their friends.”
