The team, all RD members wanted to test their bodies and raise some money for charity. The Flip’n Tyre’d Charity Challenge was their solution.
The Flip’n Tyre’d challenge was set up to raise funds for both Kidney Research UK and Ty Bryngwyn, the Llanelli Hospice. The plan was to flip a 300lb tyre from Burry Port to Llanelli. On the day of the event the team of fourteen ‘flippers’ and two support staff set off from Burry Port Harbour at 1100, they reached their destination at 1400. It took the team a total of 3 hours and an incredible 3,755 flips to complete the challenge.
To date the team have raised a staggering £3,250. Whilst there are still monies to be collected, they are hoping to break £3,750 in total!
