Now this was a fun night. We had a Race Night at Victoria Hall in Higher Bebington. Everything was going well and we were just about to start when the DVD player failed to play. Imagine, a race night with no racing. However, one bright ‘punter’ brought their laptop in and managed to get the night off to a good start.
We had a hot pot supper laid on; that was delicious. Plenty of donations helped us take over £200 on the raffle. The local shopkeepers were very generous. The betting was quick and heavy before each race. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we were the overall winners taking £1200 on the night. Thanks Beryl and everyone who helped.
The latest fund raising venture was a Race Night organised by David. The venue was the Marine Football club in Crosby (where David and Anne-Marie had their evening do for their wedding).
The evening was a great success and a real family happening. Everyone from Phil’s Nan, Paul’s brother from Leicestershire, Jake from Blackburn and not forgetting Jamie, Ciaran and 2 year-old William. Everyone had a brilliant time and a lovely hot-pot supper (sorry Phil).
After expenses, the amount raised was over £700. Well Done David! (even if he has a few more grey hairs now)
Now! What’s next???
