The Lincolnshire Rural Charities Race Day

On the 12th April 2015, LRSN and the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance co-hosted our “Lincolnshire Rural Charities Race Day” at Market Rasen Racecourse in the Brocklesby suite. We raised approximately £8,000 which is to be split between both charities which provides a fabulous contribution towards the cost of the ongoing work that we both do.

Our very own, Alison Twiddy, says “The yellow ambucopter serves as a very visible reminder of the life-saving role it fulfils within Lincolnshire’s large and rural county.  And where you see a green LRSN fleece our team are often involved in equally tragic situations, though not always as easily identified.  LRSN and LNAA are very grateful to all our sponsors and guest who joined us for our second RCRD. It is truly fantastic to get so much local support for two rural charities that provide help and support for Lincolnshire’s rural communities in unforeseen circumstances”.

240 guests joined us and were entertained with a delicious three course meal, afternoon tea and a variety of fundraising activities.

Congratulations go to the winner of the Sweepstakes, Mr Casswell, and our sincere thanks go to our loyal and generous race sponsors; ABN, Brown & Co, JHWalter, and to all the table sponsors. Without you this event just would not be possible!
