More than £4,000 was raised by the Midlands branch of the Journalists’ Charity at its annual Greyhound Night at Hall Green Stadium.

Once again the event attracted a raft of high-profile sponsors, including Heineken, Hall Green Greyhound Racing Association, ITV Central, The Racing Post and Eze Group.

The event was the charity’s 36th consecutive race night in Hall Green, having been established by former chairman and now life president of the Midlands branch, Gerry Armes.
