Charity hoping that St Leger tickets take off

BOSSES at Doncaster Racecourse are hoping to raise thousands of pounds for the South Yorkshire Air Ambulance at this autumn’s St Leger Festival.

The venue is selling some all inclusive tickets for the racing on Friday, September 9 - with £50 from each donated to the YAA.

Over £9,000 was raised from a similar arrangement last year, which also included a charity auction for the charity that needs to raise £7,200 a day to keep its helicopters flying.

The £150 tickets, include dinner, a free bar and parking as part of the package.

To ask about reserving places, contact Katie Collinson on 0777 0835241.
