There are less than 24 hours remaining to enter The Jockey Club’s online “raffle” which offers the chance to win 24 pairs of Club Enclosure tickets for Friday’s sold out Cheltenham Gold Day in return for a £10 donation to the British Red Cross’s Ukraine Appeal.
To donate to the British Red Cross’s appeal and enter the competition, racing fans should head to https://www.thejockeyclub.co.uk/cheltenham/events-tickets/the-festival/hospitality-raffle/ The deadline to enter has been extended to 6.00pm on Tuesday 15th March.
The initiative will guarantee 24 lucky people a pair of tickets each in the Cheltenham Festival’s Club Enclosure for the most prestigious event in the Jump Racing calendar. Once there they will enjoy an unbeatable view from the exclusive Hatton’s Grace Corporate Suite to watch the Boodles Cheltenham Gold Cup and the other six races on the card, complete with complimentary lunch and drinks.
The Jockey Club, which runs Cheltenham Racecourse, is supporting the charitable efforts of The British Red Cross in its response to the humanitarian crisis arising from the Russian invasion of Ukraine and has made donation of its own to the Red Cross’s Ukraine Appeal.
On the first day of The Festival tomorrow (Tuesday 15th March), the Grade Two National Hunt Chase will also be run as The Ukraine Appeal National Hunt Chase.
On day three (Thursday 17th March), Lisnagar Oscar will race in silks in the colours of the Ukraine national flag when he attempts to repeat his 2020 victory in the Grade One Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle.
To enter the Gold Cup Day “raffle”, racing fans must pledge £10 each online to be entered into the draw for the tickets. There are no limits on how many times each person can donate £10, with each pledge providing another chance to win a pair of tickets and all proceeds going to the fund.
Ian Renton, Managing Director for Cheltenham Racecourse and The Jockey Club’s West Region, said:
“As the Princess Royal Stand at Cheltenham is illuminated in the colours of the Ukraine National Flag on the eve of The Festival, there are less than 24 hours remaining in this unique competition, which offers the chance to win a pair of hospitality tickets for Cheltenham Gold Cup Day for just £10.
“At the same time, racing fans will also be supporting the invaluable work of the Red Cross in Ukraine as it responds to the ongoing humanitarian crisis in that country.”
