What ever event you are organising, from the family wedding, anniversary or corporate event. A race night is a great way for your guests to enjoy something a bit different from your usual or average disco or entertainment.
Race Nights have proved amazingly successful in raising funds for charities,no other event is so versatile and so much fun.
So what happens at a race night?
Basically you only bet on a number rather than a horse, it is classified as a lottery rather than betting. In other words it is a game of chance rather than a game of skill and is not governed by the laws of gambling.
A race night is a unique way to raise funds, and brings all the excitement of an evenings racing to your Club or Charity.
We have a varied selection from the standard Horse or Greyhound to the more exotic Sheep or Pig Races

Race nights are unique fundraising events where participants can enjoy winning money whilst at the same time raising funds towards your nominated charity.
Our fundraising race nights offer incentives that make it easier to promote and raise funds for your cause. We can help raise money in numerous ways in order to maximise your charity’s donations, these can include the following;
How it Works
The LMD race staff will arrive and set up equipment in plenty of time. When we are due to start our compere or your own choice for Mc will introduce themselves and explain the format of the evening to the guests. Once the formalities are over and the horses for the first race have been paraded the ‘punters’ will be invited to place their bets at the tote booths provided. When the race is finished and the payout dividend has been calculated and announced the lucky victors will asked to collect their winnings.
A typical Charity Race Night has up to eight races throughout the evening and can be combined with other entertainment to create a fun and exciting fundraising event.
