Crazy Race Night

Crazy Race Night 2


Who would guess that Peter enjoyed winning his race?


Our first family night of the year took place in the Hall at St Philip Neri with St Bede Catholic Voluntary Academy, Mansfield, where a racetrack resembling The Curragh was set out for a night’s racing under floodlights.

Peter Crowe, Bessa Barrett and Rob Della Spina (first three “jockeys” from the left) battle it out during the final race on the night (Rob won by quite a margin)


Many thanks go to Bro President Peter Crowe for being MC on the night; to Bro VP John Fitzpatrick for getting the horses sold, the races sponsored and the fish and chip supper organised; to Bro Bill Lewis, Headteacher at the school, and his staff for preparing the Hall and allowing us to use it as our venue; and most especially to everyone who came along, took part as jockeys and as generous,  willing punters without whom we would not have made a really handsome £659 profit.

The proceeds will now be divided between Portland College (Bro President’s chosen charity for the year) and the school.
