EAST Cheshire Hospice is to receive a boost from next weekend’s Knutsford Races.

Organised by the Knutsford Races Club, Knutsford Races is a point to point steeplechase race meeting which is a great family day out in the Cheshire countryside.

In addition to the steeplechases and pony racing there are plenty of other activities for all the family, including trade stands, amusements and a funfair, licensed bar and food, bouncy castle and a bookmakers.

If you like you can bring your own picnic. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times.

The 2018 meeting takes place at Tabley Hall on Sunday, May 20.

The racing starts at 1pm with two flat races for the sport of pony racing for children under 16 years. The first of the six steeplechase races is at 2pm.

April Green, Key Relationships Manager at East Cheshire Hospice said: “We are so grateful to the organisers of Knutsford Races for choosing East Cheshire Hospice as one of their charity beneficiaries this year.

“All the money raised will go towards providing vital care and support to local people facing life limiting illnesses.

“The races are set to be a great family day out, if you’d like to know more please visit knutsfordraces.co.uk for details.”
