Last Friday saw the second annual Fundraising Race Night held at the Hopeville Social Club in conjunction with Inverurie Loco Works and North East Sensory Services (NESS).

Master of ceremonies Ian Thain kept proceedings going with his usual compering wizardry as a large audience took to the race track with the lucky punters digging deep to support three causes.. Neil Skene and his wife Tracey led the way for NESS while Chris Ramsay and Martin Strachan helped keep the Locos Supporters Group on the right track and young Gordon Booth completed the paddock representing Loco Works Youth Development.

The night was deemed a runaway success with each of the groups leaving the event with over £1,200 “winnings” . NESS Fundraising Coordinator Neil Skene commented, “It was yet another great night and we were delighted with the turnout and thank all the sponsors and those contributing to its success.”

Locos committee member Gordon Booth echoed Neils words and added, “It really was a fun evening and we hope the next one will be equally as good if not better. With a difficult season almost over the funds raised will go some way to helping both the supporters group and our youth development set-up.”
