‘Race Night’ Success

Race night report….                                                                                                                             The first cricket club race night was held at The Hinds Head on Friday 30th January and was a resounding success. Over 50 people braved the weather to cheer on their horse/donkey! The Hinds Head put on some lovely food for punters to enjoy which went down well.

A total of 6 races were run, including the auction race which itself raised £119. Race winners included Alan Eardley, Dan Lovatt, Alex Price, Stephen Bedson, Share Club and Mike Bircher.

Punters enjoyed a good flutter with the first race turning out a 10-1 winner for those lucky ticket holders. The night couldn’t have been such a success without the generous contributions from our supportors:-

Tern Vets LKL Services                                                                                                                      Frisby and Co Solicitors                                                                                                                      Rob Bromley (builders)                                                                                                                     Phillip Smith                                                                                                                                           Roly Tavernor                                                                                                                                          AR Richards

A total of £766 was raised which will go along way to funding a new sight screen which is desperately needed.

Many thanks to all who bought a horse, sponsored a race or had a flutter.

Cheers (Ben)
