Warwick Racecourse set to reach fund-raising milestone in aid of Air Ambulance

Leamington Editorial 28th Feb, 2019   0

A FUND-RAISING milestone looks set to be reached by Warwick Racecourse at an upcoming event.

The Air Ambulance Countryside Day will be held on Sunday (March 10) from 12.30pm and be the fourth year the racecourse has supported the charity.

To date £75,000 has been raised for the Air Ambulance, and this year organisers hope it will reach the grand total of £100,000.

Along with races there will also be family friendly events including meeting the Warwickshire Hunt’s hounds and a display of working gundogs.

The event is also known in the racing calendar as a preview to Cheltenham Festival, and the Air Ambulance will host a lunch with trainers Richard Phillips and Olly Murphy, alongside former jockey Ian Popham.

Racecourse manager Andre Klein – who this year is running the London Marathon on behalf of the Air Ambulance Service said: “The raceday raises valuable funds but also provide a great stage to raise awareness of the fantastic work they do.”

Tickets to the Cheltenham Preview cost £80 per person including preview panel, two course meal, afternoon tea and drinks reception.
