Weston Park Cancer Charity and Hospital is once again painting the town purple as it hosts a special race day at the town’s iconic Racecourse on Friday 2nd June.
As part of the charity’s ongoing fundraising efforts, racegoers will be able to unite at Doncaster Racecourse and enjoy an evening of top class racing and entertainment as the town moor turf adopts the velvety undertones of the colour purple – the colours of the charity.
“Last year many racegoers wore purple in support of Weston Park and we hope that this year’s crowd will do the same again,” said Abby Chandler Group Marketing Manager Arena Leisure Corporation. “It promises to be a lovely early summer’s evening with a fantastic mix of quality racing and entertainment coupled with a fantastic atmosphere. And, visitors can be assured that by enjoying an evening out they are also supporting a hugely important charity that not only cares for people with cancer but is one of only four dedicated cancer hospitals in England.”
In addition to a packed race card, visitors can enjoy music from the PYT’s after racing. A 6-piece contemporary band that performs an exhilarating combination of rock, pop, funk and soul to get everyone in the party mood.
Darren Hayes Business Development Manager at Weston Park Cancer Charity commented; “Last year’s inaugural race day was a fantastic evening for everyone concerned and we hope that this year’s will be equally well supported. We ask the people of the region to come out and join us to help raise awareness and much needed funds to support the local cancer network. The evening promises to be another showcase for the charity and a chance for people to make the effort to support us and have a great night.”
In support of the evening Doncaster Racecourse has donated 2,000 Grandstand tickets to Weston Park Cancer Charity. The tickets worth £16 each will be available to the charity’s patients for the event on Friday 2nd June.
Gates open at 4.30pm with the first race taking place at 6.20pm. The final race of the evening commences at 8.50pm.
