A popular Moray raft race is to return after high winds forced organisers to cancel last year.
RAF Lossiemouth and Moray Council have worked together to ensure that this year’s race in Lossiemouth will go ahead as planned.
The air force called off last year’s event after a weather warning that gales of 50mph were expected was issued – prompting fears that the race would be unsafe.
The logistics of the race meant that it could not be reorganised.
The money raised at this year’s revived raft race will be split between Cash for Kids, Moray Inshore Rescue Organisation and Outfit Moray.
The race is being organised by Sergeant Sarah Tompkins-Le, and she has urged local residents to get behind the event.
She said: “This year we have a range of stalls including local craft and food producers, a bouncy castle and fun fair, and some great raffle prizes from Benromach, Harbour Lights, Tesco and Walkers Shortbread.
“For our younger visitors Lego Batman, Carl the Minion and Doc McStuffins will be coming along as our special guests.
“Fifteen teams have entered so we’re expecting a good race. I hope everyone will come along, have a great time cheering on the teams, and help us raise money for our three chosen charities.”
While there is no overall theme this year, prizes will be awarded for the best team costume and raft design.
The race winners will be presented with the toilet seat trophy.
The event will be held on Sunday August 13.
