A NIGHT AT THE RACES






On April 17 2010 THE ORIGINAL CHARITY SHOP AND LIBRARY organised an evening of fun at the races complete with a four course menu, with proceeds in aid of THE GANDIA REFUGE TRANSFORMER APPEAL.

 The eight races were presented by the “unstable boys” and they soon had the race goers up and placing their bets. And with horses named “Dr. No”,  “Groaning Scales”, “Scaramanga” or “Wobbly Bits” who could resist the temptation to become a gambler for one evening?! Much to the delight of the race goers, the last race was won by “Wobbly bits” whereas “Groaning Scales” fell by the wayside! There was also a superb Tombola with great prizes to be won and nobody went home empty handed. Many of the ladies present had donned their hats in true Ascot style (see photo) and there was a prize for the best dressed lady and gentleman race goer.

The event was a great success, raising almost 700€
for the Transformer Appeal
