Zoom Lockdown Charity Fundraising UK Horse Race Nights Another month into the lockdown in the UK and even with the slight easing of restrictions nothing much has changed in the fundraising sector we supply. We made the decision in April 2020 not to furlough the company or staff as I felt we could be of some use to customers trying to have small fundraisers or just trying to have some family fun using Zoom with our Virtual Race Night Lockdown Downloads. Race Night Lockdown Family Fun Virtual Online It was a great decision as we are hearing from customers telling us about their race night and this is one of the reasons I decided to give away ten free race night packs to customers who got in touch to tell us what they were doing or were going to do. In our July 2020 blog we will tell you about some more of our winners, Gary Fox, Ben ONeill and Gary Kirton.  Google Meet versus Zoom - Video Conferencing Software in 2020 From this feedback Zoom is by far the most popular way of different household meet ups, but coming up on the rails strong (excuse the racing puns) is Google Meet who realised they were falling behind and had to get the whip out. Virtually every customer is making a donation to charity with their nights regardless of whether or not it is fundraising or family and friends fun and with this in mind we at Race Night Services [...]

Grand National

Corporate entertainment may be the inevitable accompaniment of present-day race night events, but the Grand National on Saturday showed that even the privileged may be forced to suffer some of the indignities borne so stoically by Joe Public.  Almost 70,000 people crammed into the archaic racecourse just up the road from Liverpool town centre, and most must have been appalled by the abject misery of facilities offered for a minimum £15 per head in the enclosures.  Heads were about all you could see in most places, unless you were seven feet tall.  The alternatives were to pay £27.50 for a ‘place’ - no seat guaranteed - in the County Stand or, for £50, a more definite spot on the roof of the race night venue.  Other vantage points at more competitive rates give only a fragmental view of proceedings, especially the thrills and spills of the race night itself.  Firms, clubs and race night enthusiasts, bent on enjoying ‘a good day out’ have latched on to British Rail’s race night package.  At only £85, it obviously doesn't include admission to the actual race night itself, but it does include breakfast, dinner and transfers to the racecourse.  Two and a half hours from Euston to Liverpool is pretty good, but it was here that me and my friends were to experience the vicissitudes of life.  The convoy of buses set off in dilatory fashion from Lime Street, but still reached the entrance to the race night around midday.  However, what we [...]
