On Friday February 1st 2013, a fundraising event was held at O’Shea’s Irish Bar in Manchester, UK for the benefit of disadvantaged children in Hue, Vietnam. In total, eight live races were shown on four screens which, along with a raffle and live band, provided plenty of entertainment throughout the night. With over 100 people attending, the night was a great success with many horses and races sponsored and bet on, with one particularly popular horse named ‘The Rebel’ attracting many bets.
Hue Help would like to thank in particular Luke Keller (who will volunteer with us in April) for all his tireless effort in organising and coordinating a wonderful event that has raised somewhere in the region of £1,000. In addition, we would like to thank O’Shea’s Irish Bar in Manchester for holding the event and also all the sponsors of the races and horses. The biggest sponsors of the night were Windmill Golf Academy, O’Sheas Irish Bar, Whalley Range School, Manchester Tommy Burns CSC and VNAM Cafe. And finally, we would like to thank all those who attended the event and contributed towards improving the lives of underprivileged children living in Hue, Vietnam. We can only hope that you had an enjoyable evening, and we will ensure that donated funds will go towards improving our programmes and thus improving the lives of the children we support.
