Tractor pull = won!

We are very grateful to Wareham and Purbeck Young farmers for donating all the money from their annual tractor pull to Swanage Lifeboat. It was a bright but cold day with a brisk North Easterly wind. The teams lined up in a series of heats with the 'Lifeboat Crew' and 'Blandford Young Farmers' eventually getting through to the final.

After a great last run the Lifeboat Crew took the lead and won the final!

Thanks to everyone who took part and helped organise the event, here's what you helped to raise.

Entry fees @ £20 per team = £180.00
Collection buckets = £91.90
RNLI Souvenir Stall = £104.00

An excellent result, thank you!

If you're up for another challenge why not enter a team in our Raft Race on Sat 18th August, its part of our annual Lifeboat Week.
