10th Annual Race Night raises thousands of pounds for Charity…

On Thursday November 26th Professional Security Magazine and Visual Verification hosted the ever popular Charity Race Night at Belle Vue Stadium, Manchester. The event has been running for 10 years now and nearly two hundred people braved the northern weather to support what is now a fixture in the Security industry calendar.

The evening raised £4000 for charity and the worthy causes this year included Bolton Mountain Rescue Team, where we benefitted to the tune of £1000.00, and Francis House Children’s Hospice. A cheque for £2000 also went to The Worshipful Company of Security Professionals who will be passing the proceeds on to Child Victims of Crime (The Master’s chosen Charity for this year).

Security Magazine and Visual Verification would like to thank Bold Communications, Dedicated Micros, Inner Range, Norbain, NVT, Panasonic, Pyronix, Risco, Samsung Techwin, Selectamark, Sitewatch, TeleEye, Texecom, Tyco & Xtralis for their wonderful support. Quite apart from booking tables and sponsoring races a large amount of money was raised on the night, so the generosity of these companies is highly appreciated.

After this year’s success, Visual Verification and Professional Security Magazing are already looking forward to next year, when they will be celebrating their eleventh year and hopefully raising even more money!
