Event Cancelled Statement from Bundoran Lifeboat Soapbox Race Committee It is with deep regret that the organising committee of the Bundoran Lifeboat Soapbox Race has taken the decision to cancel this Sunday’s re-scheduled event at Astoria Road. This has not been done lightly and was taken following an examination of several weather forecasts for the weekend; all of which point to rain on Sunday afternoon. Following the recent poor weather which hit the North West and the damage it inflicted, the committee feel it would be unwise to go-ahead with the event which is so dependent on a good forecast for its success. The safety and comfort of the volunteers, participants and spectators is of paramount importance. The Bundoran Lifeboat Soapbox Race is a major fundraiser for the RNLI and to run it to the professional standard required, involves the securing of materials and services at a cost. The cancellation of the event at very short notice incurs a financial loss for the event as well as huge amount of disappointment to the participants. With all of this in mind the Committee have taken the difficult but necessary decision not reschedule the event for this year. The Committee would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused at this point and again to assure everyone involved that this decision was not taken lightly. Thank you for your continued support of Bundoran RNLI.
