So what is a Race Night?

Many charities, schools and other organisations use Race Nights as a fun way of raising funds.
If you have not been to a Race Night before, don’t worry … nor have most of Charities’ Group who are organising this one for the first time!

We will be raising money for the Upper Room, the Amber Trust and WaterHarvest.
Tickets are priced at £10, available here or after mass during January.
We will provide cheese and wine, and there will be a bar for those who wish to buy more.

What you need to know

  • You can come on your own or with friends (it’s not a team event).
  • No knowledge of horses or racing is needed!
  • We will show 8 pre-recorded horse races, chosen at random, each consisting of 8 runners.
  • Before each race you will have the opportunity to place £1 ‘bets’ on one or as many horses as you like.
  • Then you just sit back, enjoy the cheese and wine and cheer along your horse.
  • If your horse wins, you and the others who have ‘bet’on that horse will share 50% of the total amount taken on the race and the other 50% goes to the charities.
  • We will also be ‘selling’ horses in advance of the Race Night. Each horse will cost £5 and that will go in full to the charities.
  • If your horse wins its race, there will be a decent bottle of wine as your prize. So, even if you can’t be there on the evening, you can still join in.
    To sponsor a race or buy a horse, email John Clark.

If you have any questions, do feel free to ask Leslie Lyle or John Clark … they know just fractionally more than others!

Above all, just come along, have some fun and support our charities. See you there!
