Now this was a fun night. We had a Race Night at Victoria Hall in Higher Bebington. Everything was going well and we were just about to start when the DVD player failed to play. Imagine, a race night with no racing. However, one bright ‘punter’ brought their laptop in and managed to get the night off to a good start.
We had a hot pot supper laid on; that was delicious. Plenty of donations helped us take over £200 on the raffle. The local shopkeepers were very generous. The betting was quick and heavy before each race. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we were the overall winners taking £1200 on the night. Thanks Beryl and everyone who helped.
Simon’s family wish all of his friends and supporters a very happy Christmas and a good 2009. Raise a glass to him at New Year.
The Eye Fund has had a very good first year: upwards of £26000 has been raised. There is a counsellor already working at a Wirral Eye Clinic, funded by The Eye Fund. Next year 2 more counsellors will be helping people like Simon, in London and Liverpool.
We’d like to extend a huge Thank You! to Mike Traynor and all of the regulars at The Plough in Ipplepen, Devon. They had a charity night and raised over £700 for The Eye Fund. Simon spent his final years Read the Rest…
