Yes, November is a long way off. It has not been the First Night of The Proms let alone the Last, the Ashes is still being fought, and even Christmas items have yet to find their way into supermarkets.
However, it is now less than four months until the Forces’ favourite in the racing calendar: The Military Race Day at Chepstow in aid of SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity and there are 5,000 FREE tickets up for grabs at the November 8 event.
Since 2014, around £200,000 has been raised for SSAFA at Chepstow Military Race Days, enabling the UK’s oldest tri-service charity to carry on its life-changing work for serving and former Armed Forces personnel, and their families, just as it has since 1885.
More details to follow, but expect a full race card, a prize auction, and a raffle.
Tickets are limited to those with a UK Armed Forces connection and for no more than six tickets per booking or household.
To secure free tickets for the race day on Wednesday, November 8, visit tickets.chepstow-racecourse.co.uk/ssafa-military-race-day.
Companies or individuals wishing to donate or sponsor prizes should contact Annie Lawrie, SSAFA’s Regional Fundraising Officer for Wales, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
