Race Night - 2011
Despite an "eleventh hour" change of venue, this event at the Hallmark Hotel was a great success. The room setting and table decorations gave a very special feel to the occasion which was attended by more than 150 of our family, friends and supporters. A huge amount of preparatory work was done in terms of planning, including obtaining sponsors for the races and individual horses, obtaining raffle and auction prizes and the event worked like clockwork on the evening. This really was a brilliant night and with the added benefit of some matched funding raised more than £7,000 for the Charity. By popular demand, the event will be repeated in November 2012 !!
- Our good friend Bev Waters tirelessly hounded our local shops and restaurants for raffle prizes. Along with her partner in crime and another good friend Jo Carrison, they undertook the massive task of organising and manning the raffle and did a fantastic job.
- 'Place your bets!' Our sister, Pauline and friends Alison, Helen and Nadine were glued to their seats for most of the evening taking bets from the punters. A very 'slick' performance ladies!
- Thank you to Jess Lees, Molly Dawson and Bobby Pye for selling raffle tickets on the evening.
Well done all of you - we couldn't have managed without you.
