Hooves for Hospice: A day at the races with Hospice in the Weald

Hospice in the Weald is holding its first ever Charity Race Day at Lingfield Park Racecourse on Saturday 2 March 2013.

Hooves for Hospice follows on from the success of Hospice in the Weald’s corporate dinners – Red8 and the Torchlight Dinner – which raised much needed funds for the charity.

“We are inviting local companies and our supporters to join us for a day of fast furlongs, furious flutters and phenomenal fundraising,” says Rob Woolley, Chief Executive of Hospice in the Weald. “The aim is to create a fantastic day for entertaining guests and enjoying the special atmosphere of a top-class racing event, while encouraging support for Hospice in the Weald and raising funds for our services.”

The day will consist of a Champagne reception and three-course lunch in the beautiful surroundings of Lingfield Park Racecourse, with a live auction.

“Guests will then be free to enjoy an afternoon at the races and we’ll have our very own tipster on hand to give people a few tips,” says Rob.

Included in the racecard will be the exciting Hospice in the Weald Charity Race for amateur jockeys – who will be raising sponsorship in order to take part in the race. They will be given training beforehand.

Hospice in the Weald is looking for companies and individuals to buy a table at the Charity Race Day, while there are also a variety of sponsorship opportunities available.

Hooves for Hospice is being held in association with The Marketing Eye – which helped Hospice in the Weald to organise both Red8 and the Torchlight Dinner.
