Age UK Lindsey Saddles Up For Market Rasen

THEY’RE OFF! The 2019 charity partnership between Age UK Lindsey and Market Rasen Racecourse has launched to the sound of thundering hooves and one of Britain’s most popular bands – Madness.

For the next 12 months, as official partner to Market Rasen, the independent charity will be at every meeting, offering race goers an opportunity to donate and find out more about what impact the organisation has on older people in the community.

Thousands of people, aged 50 and over, are supported by Age UK Lindsey – making use of befriending services, coffee mornings, lunch clubs and support services. Last year alone, the charity helped older people to access a staggering £6 million of benefits they had previously not claimed.

Delighted to be supporting such a local and good cause for the next year, Racecourse General Manager Nadia Powell, said: “The charity does hugely valuable work to help people in the area  make the most of later life and I am sure our visitors will be most generous in their donations to ensure that their brilliant work continues.”

The big event for the coming months is the Family Extravaganza on 4th August.  This aims to be a fantastic, fun-packed afternoon of thrills and excitement for kids of all ages.  Watch the races, bring a picnic and enjoy free entertainment including: inflatable funfair, face painting, kids’ race on the track and games galore.  Best of all, Duggee, from CBBC’s Hey Duggee will be making an official meet-and-greet appearance; an unmissable event for fans of the lovable leader of the Squirrel Club.

A family pass for two adults and up to four children is just £25 and £1 from every advanced ticket sold goes directly to Age UK Lindsey.  Visit www.thejockeyclub.co.uk/marketrasenfor more information or to book your tickets.
