On Friday, June 7, the hospice is hosting a special charity Raceday event in the Pavilion Suite at Lingfield Park.

In addition to a thrilling card of flat racing, guests will enjoy a high-class hospitality package, starting with a champagne reception from 12.20 noon followed by a delicious three-course lunch and exclusive entertainment.

There will also be a tipster talk to help you make the most of your racing experience and a fabulous fundraising raffle and auction with a host of exciting lots to entice.

Lisa Muschamp, corporate fundraiser at St Catherine’s Hospice, said: “Whether you’re a local business looking for something different for clients or colleagues to enjoy, a group of friends, or family members looking to mark a birthday or anniversary, we invite you to come and celebrate with us.

“Every ticket sold will help to ensure we’re on hand to support families from across Crawley, Horsham, Mid Sussex and East Surrey through their most difficult times.”

Tickets are priced at £80 and there are options to book tables of ten as well as sponsorship packages available.

To book your place, please call Lisa Muschamp on 01293 447357 or log onto

And if you purely fancy the racing, there are also Premier Enclosure tickets available for just £14 each.

And with entry for accompanied children under 18 free, it’s a perfect treat for all the family.
