MacIntyre, the Milton Keynes-based charity that supports adults and children with learning disabilities, is celebrating a successful Race Night where almost £800 was raised.
The event, which was jointly organised by MacIntyre and the MK Dons Supporters Association, aimed to raise funds for the redevelopment of MacIntyre’s Great Holm Lifelong Learning Services, and for the MK Dons Sports & Education Trust.
As well as betting on the virtual horse races, a raffle was held and an auction for a signed MK Dons football shirt. Howard Webb, one of the country’s leading football referees, was on hand to present the shirt to the winning bidder, Christopher Cox.
Claire Kennedy, MacIntyre’s Head of Fundraising, commented “We were delighted by the level of support of the Race Night. It was a truly collaborative event with a mixture of families, staff and people we support who got together with MK Dons supporters to raise much-needed funds for both our charities”.
