Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) revealed that its raft racing teams emerged winners in the 42nd Annual Raft Race, with the teams scoring the second place in the Lagoon (Mixed teams) category and fourth position in the Open Sea (Mens) category.

The event was held on April 20, at Al Bander Hotel & Resort, Bahrain.

The Annual Charity Raft Race, organised by the Rotary Club of Salmaniya, is one of the biggest charity events in Bahrain where all proceeds go towards various charities and diverse community projects throughout Bahrain, said a statement from Alba.

This year, the motto ‘Stop Plastic Pollution’ focused on awareness of pollution caused by plastic substances and its negative impact on oceanic eco systems, it said.

Alba’s deputy chief executive officer Ali Al Baqali said: “As one of the leading industrial establishments in the kingdom, we believe that we have a strong role to play in developing the society.”

“We are proud to support the Annual Raft Race, which brings great altruistic value to the society through sports,” he said.

“Our racing teams have set a precedent of wining at the annual event. I congratulate the teams on their win and for demonstrating the spirit of teamwork and sportsmanship,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
