We are once again joining forces with Teenage Cancer Trust for another day of family fun, and this time we go to the seaside!
Teenage Cancer Trust attended our Easter Family Funday back in April and raised an incredible £650 through their raffle and bucket donations.
The national charity that works to ensure no young person diagnosed with cancer faces it alone, will once again host a tombola and raffle to raise vital funds for Teenage Cancer Trust. Every year approximately 220 young people are diagnosed with cancer in the West Midlands region. Teenage Cancer Trust makes sure that no young person faces cancer alone. Teenage Cancer Trust funds 3 specialist units in the West Midlands, at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham and the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham. The units offer local young cancer patients access to the best possible care, support and access to treatments. They help young people and their families deal with the many ways cancer affects your body, mind and life.
The family funday is FREE for under 18s, and this time we take you to the seaside! Families will enjoy a jam-packed afternoon filled with activities including bouncy castles, inflatables, face painting, Punch & Judy … all absolutely free! Not only will there be plenty to entertain the kids around the racecourse, but you’ll be able to enjoy live-action horse racing right from the trackside.
Gates open at 11.40 with the first race setting off at 13.40 (subject the change).
Adult tickets cost £9 in advance via www.wolverhampton-racecourse.co.uk with under 18’s free of charge. Tickets are available to purchase on the day at the gate for £14.
