School charity event

"What a great night! A school charity event that raised £1,570 for our chosen charity. Simon was so professional throughout, providing guidance and support prior to the event, always keen to help us raise as much money as possible.

Sacha Alexander

"Absolutely fantastic! Had no idea what to expect and found it hard to drum up interest. I was able to speak to Simon and obtain guidance on how best to run the night and ways to generate extra money and he answered many of my stupid messages and was really patient. Luckily my night was a success with a good number attending . Simon took control and just ran the event throwing in little extra to generate extra money.. Everyone had a great time and left with smiles on their faces. I raised £848 from sponsorship, tickets sales and the event and can certainly believe that a great deal more is achievable. Would highly recommend Simon, he made the night what it was."
Sacha Alexander July ‘22

Money for a great cause

"Fantastic night. Simon is very professional and very helpful, providing clear instructions before and during the event to ensure it is as successful as possible. He even helped with suggestions to ensure the event went ahead when COVID struck some of the event hosts on the day. Lots of feedback from people afterwards saying what a fantastic night it was and £775 raised for a great cause. First event I've hosted with Simon and I've also attended two other events with GoRaceNights and all have been brilliant."

Macmillan Cancer Support – London Marathon 2020

"What a brilliant night it was! Simon and Go Race Nights helped me raise over £2000 in aid of Macmillan and my journey to running the London Marathon in 2020. Everybody said what a fantastic evening they had, it was seamless from start to finish and was just an absolute laugh! Simon helped me so much in all of the preparation for the event - advice on selling horses beforehand, getting sponsors for each race, advice on hosting a raffle etc. This was extremely useful for a novice who has never organised an event before! On the night, Simon helped set up the room to make the most of the space and get as much atmosphere as possible. As a host, he is just brilliant! My friends and family enjoyed it so much, we will be looking to use Simon for our next big event too. Thank you so much!"

Raising funds for the Charities – ‘Little Princess Trust ‘and ‘Willow’

"We held our 2nd cancer charity night on Saturday which was a Peaky Blinders night and hired Simon as part of the entertainment, it went perfectly with our theme and was a great success playing a big part in helping us raise £7804 for our chosen charities a. Simon was absolutely fantastic on the night, making sure everything went to plan even allowing me to make a few changes to how he usually runs things. Everyone had a fantastic time and got really into cheering on their horses. From our first contact via email to phone conversations he was great and so helpful. I would highly recommend Go Race Nights to anyone and hope to work with him again in the future. Thanks once again Simon."

Raising funds for the charity - ‘Shooting Star Children Hospices’

"A huge thank you to Simon and 'Go Race nights' for making our first ever race night such a wonderful event. It was a charity event to raise funds for Shooting Star Children's Hospices - a wonderful organisation that supports children, with life limiting conditions, and their families and one that is very close to our hearts. Simon was incredibly helpful and supportive both throughout the preparation and planning for the event and the evening itself. He presented it so professionally and gave us great advice and tips in relation to how to present the evening, including timings, raffle and auction and how to maximise fundraising prior to the event itself. His auctioneering skills were amazing! We had a wonderful evening, everyone enjoyed it and really entered into the spirit of ' An evening at the Races' and we raised over £6000 or a wonderful cause!! Thankyou Simon!!"

"Second time of using Simon for a race night, cannot recommend him highly enough. Simon from the moment you book him, provided you with all the information that you need to set up your Race night and is always available for advice. I have been to other race nights and Simon is by far the most professional, he really gets the crowd going and will run the night for you. Brilliant."

Kerri Potter

"Our PTA organised a race night event hosted by Simon and GoRaceNights. We had never held a race night before, Simon's planning, preparation and fantastic communication skills took away the worry of the evening. We raised an amazing 634.40 which will pay for a maths enrichment day for the whole school. It was a fantastic evening, which we will definitely be doing again next year. We would highly recommend GoRaceNights for your fundraising event."

London Marathon 2019

"As part of my London Marathon fundraising for The Brain & Spine Foundation this year, I organised a race night event hosted by Simon and GoRaceNights. It was the best decision I could have made. Simons planning, preparation and fantastic communication skills took away all the stress from planning the evening. Simon then showed his professionalism and sense of humour from Race 1 till the end. I’ve been inundated with praise from guests ever since and am so proud to say we raised over £2k from the night alone. I would HIGHLY recommend Simon if you are considering arranging a race night. You won’t be disappointed!"

Over the moon

"Apologies for the delay but had to write a review following our successful race night on 20th April. It was an amazing night, everything went smoothly and we had lots of great feedback. Simon was extremely helpful in the run up to the event as well as on the night which made our job easy. The final total of money raised from the night was in excess of £1,600!!! A total we could have only dreamed about before hand so we were over the moon. Would definitely recommend to everyone!"
Shelly Shorter (Loose Lions FC) - April 2018

London Marathon runner

"If anyone is thinking about hosting a race night then Simon is your man, pre the event his correspondence and ideas are great, turns up promptly, was fully prepared and to top it off was a great host, getting people involved and wasn't phased when we chuck an unexpected auction on him!!! In total we raised £3,600 in the day for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and a lot of this was due to the first class service given by Simon!!"
John Boyd - Apr 2018

Great fun!

"This was our school's first Race Night and we didn't really know what to expect. Simon was incredibly efficient and helpful with his explanation, tips and ideas in the lead-up, especially when we needed to gee some parents along to sign up. The evening itself was great fun and extremely well organised. Simon kept things running smoothly at an ideal pace and judged the event well regarding timings with the right amount of races too. Everyone entered into the spirit of the occasion and it proved to be a healthy fund-raiser as well. It was definitely a winner for us - and Simon is odds-on favourite! Cranbrook CSPA definitely recommend him."
Helen Stevens (Cranbrook School PA), Oct  '17

Thanks to Simon for a great evening of entertainment and fun, I can't recommend you highly enough the help and advice you gave before the event and the feedback during the night from our parents was excellent and that they all had a wonderful time.
