Broad Appeal Race Night raises £2,607.22!

The Broad Appeal Race Night was held on Tuesday 12th July and supporters of this fantastic charity were invited to join the Broad's in their home town for a great night of racing.

Supporters of the Appeal, which was founded by former England cricketer Chris Broad and his two children, England fast bowler Stuart and England team performance analyst Gemma, purchased tickets for the racing with 100% of the ticket price going to the charity.

In addition to the selling tickets the charity also sponsored 3 of the evenings races to help raise awareness about Motor Neurone Disease and funds for the appeal.

The night was a huge success and including ticket sales, sponsorship and bucket collections on the evening a total of £2,607.22 was raised.

Nathan Corden, Head of Commercial Development at Southwell Racecourse said "we are thrilled with the amount raised for the Broad Appeal, it has been a pleasure to work with the fundraising team and we look forward to supporting the Broad Appeal in future. There is of course a great local connection with Chris and Stuart both playing for Nottinghamshire during their careers. The support for this cause from the local area has been fantastic.".
