Forces night at the dogs

Have your say

Sunderland Greyhound Stadium staff are getting their camouflage kit on.

The venue is hosting an Armed Forces evening on Wednesday, August 29.

The card is sponsored by North East businesses to support Help The Heroes.

Tickets are worth £20, but punters can get them at a discount fee by making a small donation – suggested £3 to £5 – to Help The Heroes.

The ticket includes admission, racecard, a pie and peas supper and three free drinks.

Simon Fozzard, of Sunderland Stadium, said: “Team GB have been racking up the golds, but we’re looking forward to seeing medals of a different kind when we welcome the troops to Armed Forces Night here at Sunderland.

“What better than to enjoy an exciting night at the dogs whilst helping such a good cause.”
