Wednesday 3rd July: Bacup and Stacksteads Carnival Organisation (BASCO) The Raft Foundation is delighted and privileged to have been chosen as the BASCO charity for 2013. With the completion of the float on Saturday we were all ready for the off on Sunday morning. Captain Jack Sparrow led us off to the sound of Deacon Blue's "ship called dignity" ringing out across Futures Park It was incredible to see so many people lining the route for the procession, participating and donating along the way. After the parade we all gathered up into the park and enjoyed a wonderful afternoon in the sun. Again many thanks to the organising committee for allowing us to participate and for those individuals and organisations who helped us get there. Steve Pilkington Automotive Refinishing Supplies Our happy band of “Rafters” and of course Captain Jack !!
