The Framfield and Blackboys WI and the Hare & Hounds in Framfield co-hosted a race night as a fundraiser for the Framfield & Blackboys pre-schools and it was a fantastic evening.
Over 50 people had bought supper tickets and about another 30 people joined in from the bar.
Racing was shown on two large TV screens, bets were placed, and the noise was deafening as everyone cheered on their chosen horses. A supper of piping hot sausages and crispy melt in the mouth chips was served in the midst of the bedlam. The horses in the last race were auctioned and the bidding was fast and furious. The evening raised £600 for the two pre-schools.
The Framfield and Blackboys WI returned to the Hare & Hounds on Tuesday evening to present cheques for £300 to Jenny Novkovic, Manager of Blackboys Pre-School and Donna Hills, Manager of Framfield Pre-School.
WI President, Philomena Whittle and Events Co-ordinator Gill Roberts along with Annie & Phil from the Hare & Hounds presented the cheques. Donna was accompanied by Sarah Ridley from Framfield Pre-School and Jenny was accompanied by Bethany Wright, Becky Dilley and Goldi Novkovic from Blackboys.
Annie & Phil said “We are delighted to join forces with our local Framfield & Blackboys WI in raising money for our pre-schools. We look forward to fundraising together with them for other good causes in the future “
