Gail made her dress and hat herself to celebrate the achievements of the NHS and her shoes and bag were from a charity shop.

Rachel Harwood, Executive Director of Doncaster Racecourse, said: “It’s amazing to see all of our customers looking fantastic, particularly this year, when no one’s had much of a reason to put on anything fancy!”
