On Friday 27th May, Barclay Communications’ Race Evening hosted at Down Royal race Course raised over £5,000 for the Jonjo Bright Trust.
Now in its thirteen year the evening launched Down Royal’s summer nights of racing and Gentleman’s Day with a touch of style and comedy thanks to an Austin Powers lookalike and most dapperly dressed and best dressed gentleman competitions.
A firm favourite in the racing calendar, the race evening attracted local celebrities including Ulster and Ireland Rugby star, Rory Best as well as thousands of race enthusiasts to Down Royal. While Barclay Communications exclusive suite hosted a VIP evening of dinner, racing and entertainment for their partners in O2, Data Select and Box, and over 500 top Northern Ireland business people.
Britt Megahey, Managing Director of Barclay Communications comments on the event, “We’re thrilled so many of our clients and partners came out to celebrate another race evening with us and to generously support the Jonjo Bright Trust despite the lure of Bruce Springsteen on the same night!”
The local business mobile, landline, IT and web design company have supported the Jonjo Bright Trust for three years and raised over £5,000 for the cause on Friday night.
Jonjo Bright was just 19 years old when in March 2013, as an aspiring amateur jockey he was left with a severe spinal injury after a point-to-point fall. The Jonjo Bright Trust was then established to help make the future brighter for Jonjo.
