A hugely successful horse race night has been held at Barnstaple Rugby Club in aid of CLIC Sargent and the rugby club grounds, raising £1,600 to split between the two.

Race night huge success!

During the evening, people placed bets on various horses across several races helping to raise money.

Mark Dimelow of the Barnstaple Rugby Club was delighted to present a cheque for £800 to CLIC Sargent North Devon branch members Jenny Birch and Helen Gregory.

CLIC Sargent North Devon branch member and main event organiser, Martin Mogford said: “This is the first of what we hope may become a more regular relationship and we are grateful to the club for hosting the event.”

The money raised from this event could pay for a CLIC Sargent Social Worker whilst they meet with children and young people with cancer and help them to understand and cope with the effects of cancer during treatment and beyond.
