On Sunday 4th August 2019, SCS sponsored a race, on a day of spectacular horse racing at Market Rasen.
The day was named ‘The Family Extravaganza’ and combined a day of horse racing with entertainment for all the family. Entertainment included a petting zoo, inflatable funfair, face painting, playground and treasure hunt, as well as their very own kid’s race on the track.
The event is always hugely popular and attracts a great summer holiday crowd. Our team had a fabulous time attending the event and we’d highly recommend a visit in future.
About the charity:
Age UK Lindsey are an independent charity who support older people across East and West Lindsey and North Lincolnshire. Thousands of people, aged 50 and over, are currently supported by Age UK Lindsey, making use of befriending services, coffee mornings, lunch clubs and support services.
Last year alone, the charity helped older people to access a staggering £6 million of benefits that they had not previously claimed. They are doing truly great work.
The race we sponsored
The race we sponsored had so many horses running that it was actually split into two races. The first started at 1:50pm and the second at 2:25pm.
The races were called “The SCS Technology Solutions Maiden Hurdle,” and both covered a distance of 2m 148yds. We were very proud to sponsor these races.
SCS team members Jerry Parker and Alex McLaughlan were delighted to be photographed with the owners of “Ray’s the Money,” one of the winning horses.
The other winner was “Youracert” and it certainly was a fantastic day!
10% of ticket sales from the day will be donated to Age UK Lindsey who, as well as being one of our valued customers, are Market Rasen Racecourse’s charity partner of 2019.
We’re very happy to have been able to support this fantastic cause.
