Bet With Ascot Charity Bins

At QIPCO British Champions Day on Saturday 20th October, Dawn Goodfellow, CEO of equine charity Racing Welfare, was presented with a cheque for £1,000 from Ascot Racecourse. 

Since the launch of Bet With Ascot in July this year and as part of Ascot’s community and social responsibility programme, racegoers have been placing their losing betting slips into charity bins which have been installed across the racecourse. 

The two chosen charities for the Flat season were Racing Welfare and Ascot’s Local Community Projects – the one with the most slips at the end of the season won the prize. 

Customers were also asked to write their phone number on the back of their slips to be in with a chance of winning a fine dining package plus £100 in Bet With Ascot vouchers and the winner was drawn on the Saturday. 
Ascot's chosen charities for the Jumps Season are equine charity Retraining of Racehorses and local charity Thames Hospice.
