MORAY folk are being asked to saddle up for a fundraising night with a twist.

Local business advisory and accountancy firm Johnston Carmichael is running a charity Race Night later this month.

But instead of horses, it will be camels that are cheered over the finishing line.

A Camel Race Night is very similar to conventional race night, with bets being placed on your chosen camels before each race.

However, there are no pre-recorded races, all races are live with the camel jockeys being chosen from the attendees on the evening.

The event is being run in conjunction with Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland (CHSS), a charity that supports people and their families after a stroke, or diagnosis of a chest or heart condition.

Craig MacPherson, partner at Johnston Carmichael, said: "We’re delighted to be running this fundraiser alongside CHSS.

"The charity provide vital support to people affected by life changing conditions across Scotland.

"It’s set to be a fun night and we hope as many people as possible can attend to help to raise money for this very worthy cause.”

Tickets to the event are £10 plus £1.25 booking fee and this includes a drink at the bar and a buffet at half-time. All proceeds from the evening will go to CHSS.

It takes place at the Eight Acres Hotel on Friday, April 26 with doors opening at 7pm for a 7.30pm start and tickets can be purchased via https://charitycamelrace.eventbrite.co.uk.
