Doncaster Race Day in support of children’s charity

The Children’s Air Ambulance is hosting a Charity Race Day in a bid to raise vital funds and awareness of the lifesaving charity.

The Children’s Air Ambulance is a national service, changing the face of paediatric and neonatal care through the high-speed transfer of critically ill babies and children – flying them from one hospital to another for specialist care. The clinically designed helicopters provide a flying intensive care unit for babies and children.

The race day is set to take place at Doncaster Racecourse on Saturday 16 July, the event packages on offer include free parking, admission badges and tickets, drinks reception, three-course dinner, live racing, and a live music concert by the legendary Nile Rodgers and Chic in the evening.

Amongst the guests in attendance will be Daniel Clegg – father of former patient Pippa Clegg-Rimmer, who will give a first-hand account of Pippa’s story and why the service is so vitally important. Pippa from Sheffield has a very rare form of pulmonary hypertension, one of only four cases ever recorded, and she was the first person under the age of 14 in the UK to have surgery to remove blood clots from her heart and lungs.

The charity has limited places available, so to purchase one of the packages, please contact: or call 07387 265 613.
