Following the success of last year’s event, the Hospitalité Council has arranged another race night for us to get together with our supported pilgrims and friends of our Lourdes family.

If you are unable to join us on the night you can still share in our evening by generously sponsoring a race or a horse.

The venue is at St Francis Social club, Acklam Road, Middlesbrough, on Saturday May 11, with the first race starting promptly at 7.30pm. Tickets are £5, which includes a pie and pea supper. There will also be a raffle.

There will be eight races in total, with eight horses in each race, and we are looking for race sponsors at £20 and horse sponsors at £2.50 each. Each winning owner receives a prize.

For tickets, or to sponsor a race or horse or donate a prize, please email john.brown160@ntlworld.com or call 07871 958412 no later than April 30.
