We are delighted to confirm that The Prince of Wales, Patron, The Prince’s Countryside Fund, and The Duchess of Cornwall, will be attending The Prince’s Countryside Fund Raceday at Ascot on Sunday 29th March.
As the final meeting of the 2014/15 Jumps season at Ascot, the day will feature an afternoon of highly competitive racing alongside a range of countryside inspired activities to keep the whole family entertained.
Proceeds from event will go towards supporting the fantastic work that The Prince’s Countryside Fund carries out.
The Prince’s Countryside Fund, founded by HRH The Prince of Wales, who has a long-held commitment to supporting Britain’s hard pressed rural areas, was set up by Business in the Community in July 2010. So far it has given £5 million in grants distributed to 120 projects across the country, directly benefitting 100,000 people.
Projects that have been funded include apprenticeships for budding hill farmers, training for young people to gain employment in the rural economy, community transport schemes in isolated rural areas and projects to educate school children about where their food comes from and why the countryside matters.
In addition to its normal application process, the Fund also operates an emergency fund for times of need.
All the projects focus on supporting the people who care for our countryside and make it tick.
Grandstand Admission starts from £25 in advance (£17 for groups of 10 or more). Fine Dining and Private Boxes are available.
