A very Royal Aintree

It is that time of year when the countdown to the major spring National Hunt meetings gathers pace, with all eyes turning to Aintree at the beginning of April.  Liverpool’s Day, Thursday 2nd April, marks the opening chapter of the 2020 Grand National Festival and marries together the magic of the host city with jump racing straight out of the top drawer.

There is no feeling quite like being right in the heart of the action, and Racing Welfare is offering the chance to be there on the first day of the festival by attending our Grand National Thursday Lunch.  Guest of Honour at the Lunch will be our President, Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal who is joining us for a day of racing that features four Grade 1 races as well as the Randox Health Foxhunters’ Steeple Chase.

Taking place in the course-facing Hospitality Pavilion, the event promises to be a fantastic day of sport enjoyed in wonderful surroundings.  Tickets are priced at £175 per person or £1,750 for a table of 10.  The package includes admission to the course, Owner’s and Trainer’s car parking, optional course walk and a fabulous view of all the action from the Sefton Terrace, in addition to the following:

  • Drinks reception and canapés
  • Two course lunch
  • Live and silent auction
  • Light afternoon tea

Racing Welfare is the only charity that supports all people who work in racing, the stud, stable and racecourse staff – along with those working in associated professions – from their recruitment right through to retirement. The charity provides wide-ranging advice and guidance services, providing support to people for challenges such as injuries and accidents, mental health, career advice, housing, money advice, illness, addiction and retirement.

By joining Racing Welfare on Thursday 2nd April you will not only enjoy a fabulous day of hospitality at one of the greatest sporting events in the world, but will also be helping to ensure that the charity is always there for all of racing’s people.  For further information or to book your place, please contact Jessica Leighton on jleighton@racingwelfare.co.uk.
