A VIRTUAL horse race night is taking place to raise money for a neo-natal charity.
The event has been organised by Alex Ireson for Ickle Pickles.
It takes place at Southwick Park Golf Club, in Southwick.
People can look forward to an auction, a raffle and virtual horse racing.
Alex, of Vectis Way, Cosham, gave birth to her daughter Matilda in Queen Alexandra Hospital, in May 2011.
She had to have a Caesarean section, due to complications, and Matilda was born weighing only 1lb and 6oz.
The tiny tot spent 92 days in the neo-natal unit at QA.
The family was supported by the Ickle Pickles charity.
Alex, 30, said: ‘I want to show my appreciation for the help I got from the hospital and charity.
‘Matilda has been very poorly and spent a lot of time in hospital.
‘She’s much better now, although she is susceptible to lung problems.
‘But still she’s doing fine and I want to say thank you with this fundraiser.
‘There’s about 20 tickets left, and we’d really like people to come along.
‘There’s a big screen, which will have the racing on for the night.’
Tickets cost £10 per person.
