This evening parishioners came together for the parish race night, a chance to enjoy each other's company and have a flutter on some horse races, all with the aim of raising some money to help send young people of the parish to Lourdes.

The races themselves are videos, and before each one people get a chance to place their bets - usually choosing by the horses' names, rather than by form, since no-one really knows who is likely to win. It was great to see a lot of young families there, especially with so much excitement and enthusiasm from the children, and also very encouraging that over £400 was raised towards the Lourdes Youth Fund. Many thanks to all who came and all who helped organise the event.
