Local businesses and supporters are under starter’s orders for a great event at Newbury Racecourse.

If you want a safe bet for the most exciting office trip this year then book a table at West Berkshire Mencap’s annual Race Day on Friday 27 February. Last year’s event raised more than £20,000 to support local adults and children with learning disabilities and with your help they hope to be as successful in 2015.

West Berkshire Mencap is taking bookings from those who would like to attend their annual event. Bookings are being taken for tables of ten and individual places, commencing with a champagne reception followed by a three course lunch and wine before a day’s racing. Guests will also have the choice to take part in the charity’s annual auction, with some exciting prizes, including holidays and a chauffeur driven trip to London.

West Berkshire Mencap CEO Leila Ferguson said: “Our annual event at Newbury Racecourse has been a fixture in the Newbury calendar and is certainly not to be missed! We’re so grateful to everyone who supports us by attending, by sponsoring the event or donating an auction prize. Our work is vital in the community and this event raises much needed funds to continue our high-quality children and adults services.”
