December 2016 ~ Race Night Fund Raiser

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Over 50 Chester Deva Rotarians, Partners and friends attended an evening at Waverton Village Hall, Chester to take part in a Race Night Fund Raiser.img_0220img_0222img_0221

The idea of the fund raiser is for those present to place £1 bets on a particular horse in each horse race running eight horses.

Then the winners are rewarded with a percentage of  the bet monies taken per race.

Eight horse races were run during the evening, which proved to be an enjoyable and successful fund raiser.

Funds raised over £500 are to be allocated to The Stroke Unit at The Countess of Chester Hospital.

Our thanks go to all those who supported this fundraiser.
