The last few tables are still up for grabs at West Berkshire Mencap’s annual Charity Race Day at Newbury Racecourse on Friday, 3rd March.

The highly-anticipated event is the charity’s biggest fundraising event of the year and helps raise much-needed funds for people with learning disabilities.

Tables are selling fast, but organisers are urging local individuals, organisations and businesses to secure the remaining seats with the promise of a full day of racing plus a three-course lunch and afternoon tea.

The day includes a champagne reception and a gourmet three-course lunch and wine. There is also the chance to bid for experiences in a silent auction with lots including a fantastic meal at the Michelin-starred restaurant The Harrow in Little Bedwyn with luxury transport there and back.
