Sight Matters is inviting Island residents to saddle up and place their bets for a ‘Night at the Races’ this month.
The charity’s popular, family-friendly race night will return on Friday 12th November at Corrin Court, Onchan from 7pm.
Throughout the evening, eight horse races will be played on a large screen with the exciting return of the highly anticipated pig race. Bets can be placed at just £1 per horse or £2 per pig, with special prizes up for grabs on the evening. Tickets cost just £5 and include homemade soup and a delicious dessert, with guests welcome to bring their own soft and alcoholic drinks. There is also an opportunity to sponsor a horse race for £10.
Debbie Thomson, Sight Matters Volunteer & Community Services Lead, said: ‘Events like this are a huge part of our fundraising efforts and help us continue to provide the vital support and services to the blind and visually impaired community in the Isle of Man. It’s fun for all ages so why not gather your friends and family and come and join us for an evening of laughs and giggles, all while raising money for our charity!’
Sight Matters looks after the interests of almost 600 people with serious sight loss in the Isle of Man, providing a wide range of important services and support to individuals of all ages.
