Lions' share of fun events

A CHARITABLE organisation is hosting two events to raise funds for worthy causes.

The Peterlee and District Lions Club is hosting a race night at Blackhall Navy Club, in the village's East Street, from 8pm on Tuesday, January 25.

People will be able to place bets on horses during past races shown on DVDs.

There are still a number of horses left to bet on, at 10 each.

The Lions are also holding a Valentines' Night dance from 7pm on Saturday, February 12, at Shotton Hall Banqueting Suites in Peterlee.

The night will include a four-course meal and tickets are 16.
