FoPPS RACE NIGHT
Saturday 19th May 2018
Dress up in your Race Night finery (if you want to!), grab your bags of Nibbles and join us for a night of food, drink and rosettes!
Buy a ticket, come along and place your bets on your chosen horse and then watch the pre recorded races on the big screen to cheer them on!
Here's all you need to know... From buying tickets to what drinks the bar will have! (stick with us... There is a lot of information here!)
Don't forget, every penny we raise goes to the school... We are currently fundraising for a mini bus, musical instruments and outdoor play equipment.
BEFORE THE RACE:
You can sponsor a horse.
£2.50 per horse. You can give your horse any name you want and it will be printed in the race guide. If your horse wins a race, you'll also win a bottle of wine and a rosette! (which we can keep for you if you aren't able to make it on the night) Let us know ASAP if you want to sponsor a horse as time is running out to print the race brochure!
Speak to any member of the committee to name a horse, or send us an email.
BUY YOUR TICKETS :
Tickets cost £5 per person. It is strictly over 18s only (so find those babysitters now!)
You can purchase your tickets from one of the FoPPS committee members who will be selling them from the school reception at the following times:
Mon 7th - Fri 11th May
Mon 14th - Fri 18th May
Every day there will be someone at school reception between 11am and 11.30am. And also between 3pm and 3.30pm to sell tickets.
If you aren't able to make any of these, please just give us a shout or an email and we can reserve you tickets.
ON THE NIGHT:
Doors open at 6pm.
Don't forget your tickets!
Bring your own food... Nibbles, pizza, picnics... whatever takes your fancy! The room will be laid out with around 8 people per table so you can eat your food throughout the evening, however suits you.
Buy drinks from the bar... There will be bottles of wine, cans of lager and beer, soft drinks and crisps available. All night long!
Place your bets! There will be 9 races throughout the evening and it will only be £1 per horse you choose to back.
Races start at 7pm.
Watch the big screen pre-recorded horse races and cheer on your chosen horse!
If your chosen horse wins a race, you will win a share of the takings...oooh!
If you sponsored a winning horse and named it, you will win a rosette and a bottle of wine!
There will also be a raffle available with some delicious, tasty and lovely prizes on offer.
Oh... And the bar will be open throughout!
