​Rotary Middleton A Night at the Races Raises £1000 for Local Charities

Crowds gathered at the Norton Grange Hotel on Saturday 4th March for Rotary Middleton’s A Night at the Races, held to raise money for local charities. The event was a great success, raising £1000 on the night and through sponsorship from local firms, including Specsavers, Lords of Middleton, The Lancashire Fold, S.Wellens & Sons and Sysop.

Raffle prizes were kindly donated by Rochdale AFC, Bury FC, Lancashire County Cricket Club, Tesco and the East Lancs Railway as well as local individuals.


“Without support from local firms and people, we would not be able to raise much needed funds for local charities. It was brilliant to see the room so full on the night; there certainly was a great atmosphere as people cheered on their horses, ” said Sue Furby, one of the organisers and Immediate Past President of Rotary Middleton. “Also, thank you to the staff of the Norton Grange for excellent service, tasty pie supper and a brilliant venue, and to Rotarian Lee Wolf for the superb presentation.”

Everyone who attended had a fabulous evening, some even coming away with a small profit! The winning owners were presented with a bottle of wine in the Winner’s Enclosure.
