Race Evening - October 2014

Friday 17th October was the date for our latest Video Horse Race Night, with Supper, Raffle, Auction and Disco. Following our previous two successful Race Nights held at the Hallmark, North Ferriby, we were delighted that our change of venue to Staff House, Hull University was so well received by the 175 guests in attendance. Angela had worked tirelessly for many weeks leading up to the event, securing from supporters and local businesses more than 60 raffle prizes and 9 Auction items, and her organisation of the evening ensured that all ran smoothly. Once again, we were grateful for the services of the "Fab Four" ladies, Helen, Nadine, Pauline and Alison who took all of the bets on the racing and made the payouts to the lucky punters. Big Phil, from R N Promotions, kept the evening moving along and did really well with the Auction (probably a good job that Horse 1 won the Auction Race !). The quality, quantity and service of the supper was first class, so thanks are also due to Jenny, Lynn and staff from the University of Hull, who helped to make the evening such a success. The combined efforts of everyone involved and the great support from all there on the night resulted in the event raising a tremendous sum of £7,682.60 for nsif, including a generous amount of £3,500 from Santander Match Funding Scheme, which takes the total raised by our local branch of the charity to £52,341.03 - all of which helps to further the research work of Professor Raisman and brings a cure for spinal injury a little closer. We are so grateful for the generosity shown and hope that the imminent news of a breakthrough will be just reward for everyone's efforts to date.
