Racegoers are being encouraged to put on their best purple outfits this June in support of Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity’s first ever race evening at Doncaster Racecourse.
As part of the racecourse’s Music Live schedule, Red Dwarf star and well-known DJ Craig Charles will play a special DJ set to those attending the special charity event this summer on the 3rd June. The British actor, comedian, author, poet and television presenter will perform a live DJ set for crowds at Town Moor following an evening of racing in support of Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.
Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity is the only dedicated charity for Weston Park Hospital and exists to support the world-class cancer research and to improve the treatment and care for people living with cancer across South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and North Derbyshire.
Tickets for the event are now available to purchase via the cancer charity website for just £15 – giving guests reduced entrance to the grandstand plus entrance to the live music performance later in the evening.
To mark this unique charity event, guests are being encouraged to wear purple for the day and ‘Paint Town Moor Purple’ to be in with a chance of winning Leger festival tickets for best dressed in purple male, female and couple.
Charity Business Development Manager, Darren Hayes said, “We really want people to join us for our first ever race evening and dress in purple to support our corporate colours.
“The cancer charity uses the colour purple for most of its branding and merchandise as well as within Weston Park Hospital so it will be fantastic to see racegoers supporting our cause in this way on the day.
“As our first ever race evening, we really hope people will go all out for this exciting event and help raise money for life-changing projects within Weston Park Hospital.
“Whether it’s a purple tie or hat, any splash of purple will mean racegoers are in with the chance of winning Leger tickets for later in the year.”
Weston Park Hospital is home to the only radiotherapy department in South Yorkshire meaning that patients from across the region are required to attend for radiotherapy treatment on this specialised unit.
All profits from tickets purchased directly through the cancer charity website will benefit thousands of cancer patients across the region.
The charity needs to raise over £2 million this year to enable the funding of committed and new projects that will keep patients at the forefront of cancer treatment.
