Charity race night at coffee house
The ladies at the Blackfriars coffee house in Fore Street, Ipswich are planning a race night with a difference.
This event is not about betting on recorded racing on a television scheme - but something much closer to the real thing - live.
The charity fundraising event, on Friday November 7, will involve dressing up as jockeys and riding hobby horses.
The race track will be chalked out on the floor.
