07 November, 2007
The day kicked off with champagne cocktails (non-alcoholic) and canapés as guests overlooked the paddocks from the pavilions, otherwise known as Forbes Solicitors' boardroom in Blackburn.
An action packed, exciting day followed with various competitions to raise money for Children in Need. A buzzing atmosphere filtered through the office as everyone donned their race gear, even some horses attended!!
The real action hotted up as the racing began with races sponsored by Bet 9-5, Ladblokes and Paddy Powerless. The day ended with a balloon bursting raffle where lucky punters and generous members of Forbes Solicitors staff dug deep into their pockets to donate to this worthwhile cause.
The Children in Need race committee were thanked for their hard work in organising the day's events, their hard work managed to see a fantastic £600 raised on the day. Activities across Forbes Solicitors other 8 offices throughout the North West meant the combined total raised for Children in Need was £1261.17.
