Hanwell and Northfields Rotary Host Charity Race Night
In aid of Shelter Box
Well they instantly respond to earthquake, volcano, flood, hurricane, cyclone, tsunami or conflict by delivering boxes of aid.
As part of its efforts over the last 2 months Shelter box have distributed over 1200 boxes in Pakistan and Mexico. As well as this they have made a commitment to provide shelter for up to 147,590 people in Pakistan in the coming months.
To aid Shelter Box in their work the Rotary Club of Hanwell & Northfields will be holding a Charity Race Night on the 22nd October 2010 at the Brentham Club, Ealing with all profits from the evening going to the charity. This is a ticket only event, so if you would like to attend please book in advance.
So what is a Charity Race night I hear you ask? To put it simply, you gather a group of people together who like to have a fun evening, you provide food, drink and most importantly a collection of horse racing DVD’s which are played during the evening.
Before each race the guest are invited to place bets on individual horses to try and guess the winner, before the start of the race a set percentage of money taken is set aside for the chosen charity, the rest of the money is then available as prize money for the winners of the race.
For the last race of the evening the horses are usually auctioned and half of the money raised is given to the chosen charity and the other half goes to the winning owner.
We realise that not everyone who would like to support the event will be able to attend on the night, with this in mind we have set up a Just Giving page at:
