Capall RC goes to the movies!

On Thursday 5 April the horses got another night off when the Club went to the Movies.

We held a charity cinema night at the Tudor Cinema in Comber and our thanks goes to Noel for the use of the cinema - it is a fantastic place - Thanks also goes to Laura S for organising Cinema and to all who helped make the evening a success from our ticket sellers to our wine waitresses.

The film of the evening was Mrs Doubtfire and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it - plenty of laughs all round!

On arrival there was a wine/shloer reception together with Lynsey S with her tray of sweets who greeted our guests!

All monies donated will be going to our nominated charity this year Autism NI.

Thank you to everyone for their donations.

Massive thanks to Judge Vanda Robinson for all your positive feedback and to scribe Jim. Thanks to all who organised the night and to all helpers who made the night run so smoothly, without you it just would not be possible to run such nights.
