Members of Sutton Coldfield Catenians together with their wives and guests enjoyed an exciting race night at their October meeting on Monday 11th October at Moor Hall Hotel , Sutton Coldfield. With several recorded televised races being shown there was heavy betting with winners and unfortunately losers! However much fun was enjoyed by all and over £ 700 was raised for Brother Peter Westbrook’s chosen charity –Macmillan Cancer Support. The highlight of the evening was the awarding of 40 year membership certificates by Brother Provincial President Jim Gillen to Brothers Peter Blackburn, Jim Phillips and Geoff Dorrett ( now of Windsor Circle) who all joined Sutton Coldfield Circle at the same meeting in September 1981.

Punters placing their bets – Some winners and some losers!
