Race night is worth a punt

Have your say

the Dnipro Appeal children’s charity, organised by Hibs fans, is to host a charity race night to boost funds for orphanages it helps in the Ukraine.

The event at the Hibs Supporters’ Club on April 21 will include a raffle and an auction. Supporters can purchase a horse in advance for £10, or turn up on the night. Businesses are also sought to sponsor races.

The charity was set up by fans after they visited the city of Dnipropetrovsk for a European match in 2005. It supports three orphanages in the city, helping to provide basic supplies for around 300 children.

Entry is free, and the first race starts at 7.30pm. For more details, contact Babs MacDonald at babs1875@sky.com.
