A huge thank you to the racing community

A remarkable number of people reached out during The FestivalTM 2021 and raised over £200,000 for WellChild. These donations have enabled vital services to be maintained throughout 2021 for some of the most vulnerable children in our society. From everyone at WellChild, we cannot thank the racing community enough for uniting to support the charity, creating an extraordinary impact for thousands of families. The legacy of this partnership will last for many years to come.
