Have a hopping good time at Gloucestershire frog racing fundraiser

Cheltenham

On your marks, get set, hop! People are being invited to take part in a ribbeting Frog Race evening to raise funds for a local hospice.

The Cotswold Frog Racing Team is coming out of retirement for a one-off evening of wacky frog fun in support of Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice.

Taking place on Friday 6th March at Churchdown Community Centre, it will see people racing wooden frogs over the course of six races. The winner of each race will go through to a grand final.

Auctioneer Philip Allwood of Moore Allen & Innocent, who regularly appears on TV shows such as BBC One’s Bargain Hunt, will auction the frogs to raise funds. People will also be able to sponsor the races.

Tickets for the Frog Race are on sale now and cost £10, which includes a delicious Ploughman’s Supper.

The evening is being organised by big-hearted volunteers to raise money for Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice, Gloucestershire’s only inpatient unit for specialist palliative care. The hospice provides expert care for local people with life-limiting conditions and also supports their families.

Hospice volunteer Paulette Vallois, who is helping to organise the event, said: “Get ready to croak with laughter at our hilarious Frog Race evening! We are so grateful to The Cotswold Frog Racing Team who are coming out of retirement for one night only to help us with this very special fundraiser, as well as auctioneer extraordinaire Philip Allwood.

“We hope you will be able to join us for a night of fun and friendly competition with a difference that will raise vital funds for the compassionate care provided by Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice. The hospice’s vital services include a 16-bed inpatient unit, the only of its kind in the county, a Day Hospice, and Hospice at Home, which cares for people in their own homes.”

The Frog Race fundraiser will take place on Friday 6th March 2020 from 7.30pm at Churchdown Community Centre in Churchdown (Parton Road, Churchdown, Gloucester, GL3 2JH). The first race will start at 8pm.  

Tickets cost £10 and include a Ploughman’s Supper. To find out more and book a ticket, please email paulette.vallois@suerydercare.org or call 01452 856 951.
