Scarborough 41 Club and Round Table charity race night proves a good bet!

Scarborough 41 Club and Round Table recently joined forces to arrange a Race Night to raise money for the Round Table Children’s Wish appeal which arranges ‘Wishes’ to cheer the lives of seriously ill children and their families, be it a trip to Disneyland or meeting a pop star.

The event was held in November in a large function room donated free of charge by Scarborough Rugby Club, and attracted sponsorship from a number of local firms:

  • Lloyd Dowson
  • David Duggleby
  • Brian Davidson
  • Raflatac
  • Moore Stephens
  • Pinkney Grunwells
  • Care Micro
  • Boyes Stores

Organised by a joint committee of Richard Grunwell, Steve Slade, Simon Ward, Ben Kitto, Mike Shingler and chaired by Simon Lockley, the event raised a total of £2,000, and was attended by 108 people including Round Table Children’s Wish representative Alan Collins who travelled all the way from Coventry for the evening!
