Ascot Jockey Hosting Raises £35,000

Ascot Jockey Hosting Raises £35,000

by IJF |  20 Jan 2020

On Saturday 18th January, Ascot's CEO Guy Henderson and Jacqui Greet presented William Norris QC, Chairman of the Injured Jockeys Fund and Lisa Hancock the Fund's CEO, with a cheque for £35,000 raised from their Ascot IJF Ambassador Programme. This brilliant initiative raised £27,000 in 2018 and has surpassed that this year.  In total, since the programmes inception in 2017, over £80,000 has been raised. The scheme sees Ascot donate £1 for every fine-dining customer and then guests kindly donate on the day if they so wish. 

We would like to express our thanks to the whole Ascot team and especially to David Crosse, Kate Tracey, Ryan Tongue, Tom Bellamy, Wayne Hutchinson and Connor Shoemark: we are very grateful to all involved.
