In January 2020 we hosted our first ever Dorchester Round Table – Charity Pig Racing Evening (cute, little, fluffy, cuddly pigs … definitely not real ones!). The event was run in association with Mike Schofield Promotions at Brownsword Hall, Poundbury.

Tickets for the event were priced at £6.50 per person, which included a ploughman’s supper. A limited amount of tables for groups of 8-9 were available. We were delighted to be joined on the evening by Dorchester 41 Club, Dorchester Corkers and  Yeovil Round Table. Thank you to everyone else who attended.

A fun & lively evening

We enjoyed a fun and lively evening and we hope everyone who attended had a great time. There was a licensed cash bar available throughout the evening and raffle. Prizes were supplied by many local businesses in Dorchester.

Numerous charity pig races ran through the course of the night, where attendees had the opportunity to place bets on a pig.

Funds raised on the night

All profits from the event were donated to Dorchester Poverty Action – a Dorchester based charity helping to support those suffering from financial hardship.
