Rotary Race Meeting
Terry Leivers writes;
As you know the Rotary Race meeting is being held again at Southwell Racecourse on Friday 19 April 2013 with the first race at 4.50pm, gates will be open from 3.30pm. Why not make it your club meeting for that week and bring family and friends?
I now have the Grandstand tickets, usually £11 each, which we are selling for just £5 again, the same as last year. Please make cheques payable to Rotary District 1220 Central account and send them to Terry Leivers, 7 Bestwood Lodge Stables, Nottingham NG5 8ND. Tickets will be posted to you.
If anyone wishes to upgrade to Premier tickets, which are £16, this can be done by purchasing the Grandstand ticket from me and I will leave your name at the gate so that you can upgrade for £5 on the night. Please see the Southwell Racecourse website for details of the advantages of Premier tickets.
Anyone wishing to book a meal in the restaurant is requested to buy tickets from me then book a table direct with the racecourse advising that they already have a Grandstand ticket and wish to upgrade.
The message is please get your tickets from me first please!
For those who have not been before it really is a fun event with plenty of eating outlets at the course.
We have sponsored 6 of the 7 races so if your club or anyone you know would like to sponsor a race please ask them to contact me.
We ask sponsors to pay £500 of which £325 plus £65 VAT, i.e.£390 goes to the race course and £110 to Polio Eradication. VAT registered businesses can reclaim the £65 VAT so the cost to them is just £435. It is a good package of benefits with a full page of advertising in the programme, the race named after them, 6 Premier tickets and present the prize and have a drink with the winning owner after the race. We do have sponsors who choose to donate more than the £500 minimum too.
I hope that we repeat the tremendous response we had last year when we sold over 1,500 tickets and donated £9,000 to Polio Eradication on the night.
