We are holding a silent auction for our Hospitality Box at Newcastle Races on Northumberland Plate Day (29th June 2019) in aid of children’s charity Wellchild.
The Northumberland Plate (commonly referred to as ‘The Pitman’s Derby) is Newcastle Racecourse’s most prestigious race and is part of a great day’s racing that always attracts a bumper crowd.
Wellchild is a national children’s charity that provides nursing, practical and emotional support making it possible for many young people with exceptional health care needs to be cared for at home instead of hospital. More information here: Wellchild
