We are proud to support our Military and on the Friday of Royal Ascot, unofficially known as “Armed Forces Day”, concessions are specially made available for military personnel and volunteers from The Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity, Army Benevolent Fund (ABF) - The Army’s National Charity and the RAF Benevolent Fund. In addition, a tri-forces bucket collection is held on the day which typically raises in excess of £20,000.
The racecourse also donates £2.50 from every jug of Pimms sold on the day and our concessionaires generously donate 1% from their sales on the day. Ascot Racecourse has also helped the ABF raise over £180,000 onsite through various fundraising activities.

We host The Not Forgotten Association annually and provide free raceday tickets to the Chelsea Pensioners and other military organisations.
