Donaghadee Lifeboat

Donaghadee Lifeboat Festival

THE sun was shining and the crowds came to town today for fun and games at the 10th annual Lifeboat Day, part of Donaghadee’s Festival Fortnight. The queues to see inside the lighthouse and the All-Weather Lifeboat, Saxon, formed before noon. The occasional heavy shower failed to deter the hardy raft racers and the rowers of the St Ayles skiffs. Jackie Flavelle and his band provided the entertainment down on the pier and the Cool FM roadshow broadcast live from the seafront. Another successful fundraising event for the charity that saves lives at sea.
