A SELL out bonfire night held at Warwick Racecourse has raised over £28,000 for charity.
For the second year in a row all 6,000 tickets for Warwick Bonfire were sold out in advance of the event on Saturday night (November 5).
Crowds poured through the gates for the firework extravaganza which also featured music, hot food and a bar.
And Warwick Lions, Warwick Rotary Club and Warwick Racecourse were delighted with the turnout.
David Shore who chairs the bonfire team, said: “Our volunteers have worked hard for the last six months to make the show a reality and it is a relief to have everything come together. Lions and Rotary depend on these events to raise money for charity, and we needed a success tonight to be able to continue our work.”
Local sponsorship was provided by Feldon and Dunsmore, local solicitor Geberit, Bovis Homes, Warwick Kia, Delta Marriott hotel and Godfrey Payton, with the pallets for the bonfire supplied by Uniparts Logistics.
Warwick Ambulance Association provided First Aid support and the Air cadets helped to set up.
CJ’s Events provided staff and stalls for the event.
All the proceeds will go to local charities and good causes.
