Newmarket Racecourses are proud to announce racegoers who attended the Moët and Chandon July Festival helped to raise a total of £9,404.74 for local children’s charity and chosen charity partner, East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH). This donation marks the highest amount raised for EACH over their three-year partnership with Newmarket Racecourses.
The charity had a presence on course where they hosted a raffle over the three-day Festival. Money was also raised through the Newmarket Racecourses’ booking system, where all racegoers were given the option to donate £2 to this very worthy cause and bucket collections were available on the gates during the event too.
EACH cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across East Anglia and supports their families. The charity offers families flexibility and control over where they receive their care and support; at home, in hospital or at one of three hospices at Milton (Cambridge), Quidenham (Norfolk) and The Treehouse (Ipswich). The funds raised from The Moët and Chandon July Festival will go towards continuing to provide these vital services.
Amy Starkey, Regional Director of Jockey Club Racecourses, East Region, said;
“I would like to thank our generous racegoers who helped raise a staggering £9,404.74 for EACH, our official and very worthy charity of the Moët and Chandon July Festival.”
”We’re proud to be able to support this fantastic charity for the third year running and we’re looking forward to continuing our relationship with the team at EACH for years to come.
Vicky Matthews, Corporate Fundraiser (Suffolk), said;
“This is fantastic news and we would like to thank Newmarket Racecourses and The Jockey Club, for their continued and generous support, we really value this partnership.
“Support from the community like this is invaluable as we continue to care for children with life-threatening conditions across East Anglia and support their families.”
