Race fans deliver £400 prize for Letchworth Howard pantomime outing
Race Night raises fund for Panto outing
Letchworth Howard Rotary Club’s annual pantomime outing for under-privileged children was the clear winner at the club’s race night on January 26, which produced net proceeds of £400 to pay for this year’s visit to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Gordon Craig Theatre, Stevenage.
The evening included a bumper raffle which saw one lucky punter have no fewer than three of the tickets in his strip of five drawn for a prize. He insisted that two of them be discounted and tickets re-drawn.
Working in conjunction with Home-Start, the charity that helps families with young children, the club had already taken 22 local children and nine accompanying adults to the Gordon Craig show earlier in the month.
The club has two further big fund-raising events on the stocks.
First is its Bridge Drive at Letchworth Settlement on March 8, at which Garden House Hospice Care, which serves all of North Herts and the surrounding area, will be the principal beneficiary. More details and entry forms are available from Alan Fraser Email: firstname.lastname@example.org .
That is followed on March 30 by a grand charity quiz at St George’s Church Hall, Norton Way North, in aid again of Garden House Hospice Care and of Mary’s Meals, the charity that sets up school feeding programmes for children in some of the world’s poorest communities who would otherwise go without a hot meal. The event is at 7.00 for 7.30, with tickets a mere £14, which includes supper.
