A day at the races

Raising money in style

We love raising money for local charities, and Thorne Funeralcare decided to do it in style by holding a charity Ascot Race Day.

Funeral Arrangers, Hazel Roberts and Tracie Crookes, organised a special afternoon at the local Yacht club where attendees dressed up to the nines to compete for the accolade of “best dressed”. They were treated to an afternoon tea with a glass of bubbly and spent the day betting on the races.

The day was a massive success, and with around 70 people attending, they raised a fabulous £1400 for charity Pride of the Isle.

Well done to the Hazel and Tracie, and also thank you to Joanne Bale and her staff from Co-op Food, without whom the event would not have come together.
