Royal Ascot posterROYAL ASCOT DAY 

Thursday 16th June 2016

The poster shown alongside this note gives most of the details which can be provided about this new charitable fundraising event in the club calendar.

Many events which we organise are for specific charities but the club makes donations to many humanitarian good causes which cannot be highlighted in this way. Because of this the Rotary Club of Wakefield needs to raise funds for its own charitable fund with occasional events such as this.

To add to the fun there was a raffle with many winners for each of the four races which will be shown on the big screen. For example, if there are 10 runners and 70 people participate, there will be 7 winners.

There was also be a complimentary tea and coffee station all afternoon between lunch and afternoon tea as well as a cash bar.

LATE NEWS: Singer Sarah Watson entertained guests during the early part of the afternoon before racing started. She was accompanied by Will Stead on the keyboard.
