The evening will begin with a welcome from one of our trustees and a brief overview of the work of the foundation over the last 12 months and we will also be joined by a guest speaker, details of which will be announced nearer the time.  At 7.45pm sharp the frog racing will commence, with John Casserley, our host for the evening, setting off proceedings.

Door Entry: £10 per ticket for the night

Prize: Signed Lionel Messi Shirt

Time: 7.00pm

Prize Draw Tickets: 1x£10, 2x£20, 5x£30

On the Night

On the night there will be 5 races plus an auction race, where you can take up the challenge to become an “Owner”, or team up with friends (or strangers if you prefer) to form a syndicate to buy a frog. Alternatively, you can just bet on your favourite frog!  Come as a group or join with others to make up tables of up to 10 people.

Now for the audience participation … Jockeys will be appointed from each table of guests.  A full demonstration will be provided on the evening from our ex-champion frog racing expert, Joyce Kirk.  For each race there will be the opportunity to help us raise money and bet on the outcome through a very simple betting system kindly run for the foundation by Mr John Casserley

On the evening there will be a Prize Draw, which will be drawn after the final race. We are excited to reveal that the prize on offer is a Pre-framed Lionel Messi, signed Barcelona shirt, issued with a certificate of authenticity.  This was kindly donated by Chris’ Uncle, Ian Galletly, owner of Ingredient Solutions, based in Ireland and Chris’ former employer.  This might be your only chance to own a piece of sporting history.

Prize Draw tickets are priced at;

  • 1 x ticket = £10.00;
  • 3 x tickets = £20.00;
  • and 5 x tickets = £30.00.


The Prize Draw tickets will only be on sale at the event, so you have to be there to be in with a chance of winning this fantastic prize.
