Dozens of people attended a race night fundraiser at Glamis Hall on the Queensway estate in Wellingborough last weekend.

The event raised more than £950 and will go towards setting up a youth club at the community centre.

Graham Campbell from the Glamis Hall For All committee said: “Everyone who attended our race night had a very enjoyable evening.

“70 people thoroughly enjoyed themselves and said they can’t wait until the next one.

“They all commented how nice the food was, all cooked by Glamis Hall chef Lloyd Sumar.

“We had prizes of champagne and prosecco for the winners of owners and jockeys.”

A number of local companies helped out with the fundraiser by sponsoring all eight races.

The companies were Plumbco, Baldrys Airport Transfers, Revitilized IT, Think 3e, Brobrad Developments, Casabella, Applesparks and Goodey and Howell.

There was also a ‘sizeable’ raffle and Mr Campbell added: “We can’t thank everyone enough for raising a massive £959.17 on the night.”

The money raised at the race night will go towards starting Glamis Hall’s youth club very soon.

They are also looking to launch Glamis Hall FC and are looking for anyone interested in managing a football team or youngsters who would like to get involved.

Anyone interested can contact Glamis Hall or send an email to [email protected]

Mr Campbell said: “Very exciting times are ahead this year for the youth in our community.”
