The Trust will be holding a race night at the Grandstand Club on Saturday 30th September. Admission will be from 7pm onwards and will be via a purchase of a ticket. Tickets are priced at £1 in advance or £2 on the night. Tickets are available from Rob Urwin and the entrance fee is purely to cover the cost of food that is being put on.
The club has agreed that all the players and officials will be in attendance and press releases are in the process of being sent out to promote and market the event.
So far we have three race sponsors in Scarisbrick Hotel, Southport GB and Michael and Susan Reece. More sponsors are still available at a minimum of £25. Horses and jockeys are also on sale at £2 a go with a prize for the winner and the trust have already sold about 50% of those available. If anyone wishes to purchase a horse or a jockey, they will be available at the online shop shortly or from a trust member on matchdays. There is also a plan to incorporate Irish Bingo into the night.
Tote prices have been set at £1 per bet and the trust are still looking at finding companies to donate the prizes for the winning owners and jockeys.
