Here it is folks! Advance ticket sales for the fabulous 'Philip Nicholls Race Night' for grown ups are go! Here's the full details...

Some of you may know that last year the wonderful Vice Chair of the Friends of Pontprennau Primary School committee Philip Nicholls passed away suddenly. The Race Night was one of his favourite events and we now bring you this event in his memory. It is a brilliant night of fun with your fellow parents, teachers and friends. Please come along to support it and help raise some money for the school! 

The concept is lots of fun but a bit complicated to explain... Hopefully this explains it!! :

We like to invite you to the next FoPPS event... A Race Night for grown ups only! 

We are testing out an online ticket sales system to make it easier to book. Tickets cost £5 each. Click on this link to book your tickets now!

How does the night work? We set up the school hall with lots of big tables. We show pre-recorded horse races on the big screen and you can place your bets for only £1. Join us as a team with your friends & (you can bring your own nibbles or perhaps order a pizza and set up a picnic on your table!) and drink (there will be a bar!) 

We have an open invite to all parents, guardians, teaching staff and the local community to come along. Gather your friends and family, make new friends and have a fab night out supporting the school!

And there's more ways you can support the event and the school!.... 

You can also win prizes by sponsoring a horse. You can do this whether you are able to come on the night or not. Just drop us an email, send us a message or speak to a committee member to get your name down! 

Think up a good name for a horse (make it as silly as you like!) and let us know how many you'd like to sponsor for just £2.50 each. Your chosen horse's name(s) will be printed in the race booklet for the night. 

At the race night, if your horse wins its race, you win a bottle and a rosette!

We have 60 horses up for naming... And every one sold raises money for the school!

Tickets and horses can be paid in cash (to any of the committee members) or we can provide bank details if you'd like to transfer the money. 

Start thinking up those clever names...and just to say that if you aren't able to come on the night we will keep your bottle for you!!

*anyone over the age of 18 can sponsor a horse. Please share! *
