Thank You Thornfield Race Night

Rugby Thornfield Indoor Bowls Club, played host for a race night raising funds for the Children’s Air Ambulance. The Children’s Air Ambulance is the UK’s first dedicated air ambulance for transporting vulnerable young children to the specialist help they need or, if the child is too vulnerable to move, bringing the specialists to them. It receives no government funding and relies entirely on the generosity of donations.

The main night sponsor was Jamesway Travel, with races being sponsored by Rugby Model Engineering Society, Let’s Party Rugby, Bowl4Fun and Clifton Road Chiropractic. The generosity of these sponsors helped offset the cost of the event provider, ensuring that almost all the funds generated were passed on to the charity.

At the end of an enjoyable evening the participants left, some richer, some poorer but knowing that they had helped raise an impressive £887.50 to keep the helicopter flying bring hope to it’s vulnerable young passengers.
