Charity Race Night for Positive Action on Cancer

Positive Action on Cancer will be holding a Charity Race Night at Frome Football Club on Saturday 24th October  to raise much-needed funds for its ever expanding service.

Tickets are priced at just £5 each and a hot supper is included in the price.

The event is being organised in partnership with one of PAC’s valued volunteers Dot Cretney who says “Race Nights are an evening of fun and laughter where we have six horse races sponsored by various companies. Each race has 8 horses in them and each horse is auctioned off before the race.

“If your horse wins you receive 40% of the total takings for that race and if you are 2nd you get 20%. There is also a tote where you can buy a horse for £1. You can make it as cheap or expensive as you wish, but it is always best to get a table of friends together.

“There is a hot supper and for a fiver it’s a great value for money fun night out!”

Helen Sprawson-White, assistant fundraiser for PAC says, ‘We are so excited about this event, why not get a group of friends or colleagues together to help us to make this a fantastic and fun evening? We would like to say a huge thank you to Dot and our 6 race sponsors; Garston Vets, Frome Medical Practice, Portway Dental Surgery, Co-operative Funerals, Frome Wesley Church Slimming World group and Stellasoft.”

PAC provides free, professional, emotional support for cancer patients and their families through what can be the most challenging time in their life. PAC’s clients say that the service, the only one of its kind in Somerset, West Wiltshire and Bath, provides a lifeline through their darkest days.
