Nottingham City Transport announce charity race day partnership with Carlton Town Football Club
Nottingham City Transport have announced they will be official partners of Carlton Town FC for their charity race night to be held in June.
Southwell Racecourse decided to help raise money for the club by offering them 500 tickets to sell.
Carlton Town have been struggling financially since last years' theft and destruction of their clubhouse sports bar, leaving them £9,000 out of pocket.
Despite vociferous backing from MP Vernon Coaker, the club's insurance failed to pay out and have forced the team into slashing their playing budget, and coming up with fundraising ideas to help meet running costs.

They sit eighth in the Evo-Stik First Division South, with a tougher battle to balance the books than escape relegation.
Chairman Mick Garton recently confirmed that NCT would be the club's official partner for the day.
He said: "Nottingham City Transport were so positive in wanting to help the club, they appreciate the benefits we bring to the local community and want to be a part of that.
"It is a major coup for us to get such a prestigious and highly respected Nottinghamshire company on board and the first time the bus company has been involved with the club, which is another major plus for us and hopefully the partnership will bloom and prosper."
Nottingham City Transport were equally upbeat. Marketing manager Anthony Carver-Smith said: "Nottingham City Transport recognises the important role Carlton Town Football Club plays in bringing together the community, and as NCT is dedicated to supporting projects that benefit local people,
NCT will help Carlton advertise the event by promoting the ticket sales on their transport services, and will sponsor a race on the night.
"This is a fun, enjoyable event that will help a well-loved local team and we are very pleased to be involved.
Tickets will go on sale this month priced at £6, half the usual amount to get in to the race course on the day, and children will be admitted free of charge for the event on June 2.
Details of outlets selling the tickets will be announced shortly.
