ASCOT RACE WILL RAISE CASH FOR THE PRINCE’S COUNTRYSIDE FUND
TWELVE RIDERS will contest The Prince’s Countryside Fund Charity Race on Friday 23 November at Ascot Racecourse. The race day raises money for the fund, which in turn supports British farmers and the countryside.
British fashion model Rosie Tapner is preparing to race at Ascot for the first time. Her rivals will include Samantha Hills, daughter of Derby-winning jockey Michael Hills, seasoned charity race rider Maurice McCarthy, Camilla Swift, supplements editor for The
Spectator, Emily Baxendale, founder and creative director at Emily-London milliners, and Patrick Chesters, head of gaming at Chester and Bangor-on-Dee.
The Prince’s Countryside Fund was founded by The Prince of Wales in 2010 to help secure a brighter future for British farmers and the countryside. Each year the fund provides more than £1.1m in grants to projects across the UK, as well as coordinating initiatives, such as The Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme.
Tickets are free in the Queen Anne Enclosure on 23 November and start from £25 on 24 November. For further information, visit: www. ascot.co.uk/horse-races-and-events/princescountryside-fund-raceday/friday; tel: 0844 346 3000.
