Searivers Caravan Park held the event for the Caravan Owners and their families. The event included Collection Buckets at the entrance, a Duck Race, a tombola (where many prizes were donated by their contractors and suppliers) and culminated in a spectacular Fireworks display.

The organisers made a donation of £700 to each of the charities chosen.

The Fireworks have traditionally been put on by the South family, and the donation to Cancer Research was made in memory of Steve South who sadly died from Cancer. The RNLI in Borth was chosen as the other recipient as it is a local charity that provides search and rescue services in the area that the park is located.

Key facts about the RNLI

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen, Carrybridge and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.

The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
