RR Elite were very proud to be able to sponsor one of the horse races at newbury racecourse in aid of the West Berkshire Mencap charity day on Friday 1st March 2013, this fantastic day raised lots of money for the charity through various activities. One of the days guests included TV Celebrity Lorraine Chase who very kindly posed for some pictures in our vintage cars which were on display at the event.
Local businesses joined guests, including BBC newsreader Bill Turnbull, yachtsman Sir Chay Blyth and actress Lorraine Chase, to enjoy the racing as well as a three-course-lunch, Auction and Raffle.
West Berkshire Mencap has suffered from local government budget cuts of more than £64,000 in the last two years and, as a result, the charity is working harder than ever to fundraise.
CEO of West Berkshire Mencap, Leila Ferguson, said: The more businesses buy tickets and come along on the day, the more money we can raise.
We provide activities that we dont want our community to ever be without.
So, we need to keep raising awareness and fundraising
