Race Night at District 1200 Conference in Plymouth

On Friday 15 October, 13 jolly members of Brue Valley Rotary travelled to Plymouth to host a Race Night for Rotary District 1200 Conference 2021. Most of us travelled in the Wincanton Community Bus, very ably driven by Rotarian – and qualified bus driver – Andrew Moore, despite the various hold-ups and detours it was a safe journey.

The Race Night was attended by some 140 delegates from District 1200 and, by the volume of noise they made, they seemed to have had a good time. Much betting was done, and although not everyone was a winner, two good causes benefitted from their generosity. Childrens’ Hospice SW and Parkinsons UK.

There was an estimated £950 raised on the Tote and £350 on the Raffle, Rotarian Adrian Foster from Chippenham, who was the lucky bidder for ownership of the winning horse in the last race, won £156 as his prize – he very generously donated £100 to the pot. So, although not finally confirmed, it looks like Brue Valley Rotary helped District 1200 to raise approx £1400 for two very worthwhile causes.

Very many thanks to all delegates, the Brue Valley Race Team and especially Andrew Moore for getting us there and back safely.
