Our Race Night compares provide the whole package and charge a set fee and not a percentage of the takings.
What they provide is the following ;

Printed Race cards
Game of ‘last person standing’ (heads or tails, stand up bingo etc.)
Projector and Projector Screen
2 speaker PA sound system
MC services for the whole night
Calculation of the tote winnings for each race
Detailed breakdown, post the event, of how the money was raised on the night
Full training to the volunteers (up to 4 needed for the tote desk)
Public Liability cover up to £1million
Our Race Nights conform to The Gambling Act 2005 (as long as they are run as a non-commercial event)
A fun and exciting evening!
How is the money raised?
For each race, the takings from the tote are split between the winners and the fund raiser. Usually this split is 50/50, so for example; if £100 is taken in bets then £50 will be split between the winning ticket holders and £50 to the fund-raiser.
Charging for entrance to the night can really help towards your fundraising target, even covering your overheads before the night begins. In our experience most people are happy to spend up to £5 for a ticket. 100 people quickly translates into £500 raised!
Consider finding sponsors for your races prior to the night. The sponsors name will be advertised on the Race Card, complimented with various announcements over the night. If you can get sponsors to pay up to £25 for a race then this will raise up to £200.
Name a Horse and be a Jockey
Great for those unable to attend the night but would love to contribute somehow. Prior to the evening, for £2 get your friends or colleagues to buy a horse and name it and for a further £2 they can be the named jockey. The horse name, owner and jockey will appear on the Race Card and if their horse wins, they will win a prize. With 64 horses to sell, this can raise up to an additional £256 (less costs for prizes).
Double Card / Tote Trio Forecast
To run on the night, race-goers can bet on who will finish 1st and 2nd in order, or the first 3 horses past the post.
Last Race Auction
An exciting way to draw the event to a close with the horses being auctioned off to the highest bidders.
Self-explanatory! Who doesn’t love hearing their winning ticket number called.
How much will your Race Night raise?
This is obviously dependent on how many race-goers you get to come along to your event and of course whether any of the pre-event selling (horse / race sponsors etc.) can be done beforehand. It is not uncommon to raise over £1000 (after overheads) for over 100 people; and of course our compere will help you all the way before the night and during the night to make your evening a great success.
