Friday 24th February was OPGS Parents’ Association’s first Race Night.
Approximately 65 lucky punters were treated to some fine races, including the standard horse races, but also horse & carriage racing – but everyone’s favourite gambling vice; a pig race!
As the evening progressed the cheering became louder and the bets increased culminating in a mad frenzy for the eighth and final race. The horses in this race were auctioned off before they were under starters orders and the lucky owner collecting an additional prize at the winning post.
Race 6 also had some extra spice as this was where the Tricast was won (and lost by most of us!). But we were able to make one lucky winner’s weekend much improved with the top prize of £100.
Definitely an event to add to the annual calendar. We raised over £1000! Thank you!
Thank you to all our sponsors; we were able to get sponsorship for all 8 races and a big thank you to our event sponsor Kent Custom Dipping.
