Charity Race Night 11th March

Charity Race Night 11th March

Wombourne resident Jo Payne will be running both the Brighton and London marathons in April, in aid of Alzheimer’s Research. This is in memory of her mother-in-law, who lost her fight with this hideous disease at Christmas in 2015.

To support this effort, The Mount Pub in Wombourne is holding a Race Night on 11th March to raise funds for this wonderful charity. There will be 8 races during the course of the evening, plus a raffle and auction, which have so far attracted some brilliant prizes – including a signed picture of Lewis Hamilton’s F1 car, a signed Wolves shirt, and a very fancy set of brand new hair straighteners. There is even a chance to win a full house clean, and the use of a handyman for a full 3 hours for all those jobs you never get round to doing.

Tickets are now on sale at ¬£3 each, and sponsorship for a race is also available which will be a fantastic use of ¬£50 for any local businesses who would like to hear their name mentioned multiple times during the evening. You can also donate money to “own” a horse and choose its name .

For more information on this event you can email Jo: jo.payne1970@gmail.com
