Jockey Club Catering, the food, beverage and hospitality partner at Epsom Downs Racecourse has helped raise more than £4,600 for The Children’s Trust during this year’s Investec Derby Festival.
Volunteers across the racecourse came together over the two-day festival to raise money with the final amount being matched by The Jockey Club Catering team.
The Children’s Trust gives children and young people with brain injury and neurodisability opportunities to live the best life possible, by providing specialist rehabilitation, education and community services across the UK.
The money raised will go towards The Children’s Trust services, including their intensive rehabilitation service. The donations will also support community-based services that help children make a successful return to school after a brain injury.
Fiona Thorne, community fundraising manager for South East at The Children’s Trust, says: “We are so grateful to everyone at Jockey Club Catering for their support. The money raised will help young people with brain injury and neurodisability and it is thanks to people like Jockey Club Catering who help to cover the cost of therapy and care so that young people are able to live the best life possible. On behalf of all the children and families at The Children’s Trust, thank you so much for choosing to support us.”
During the Investec Derby Festival, Jockey Club Catering caters for the 125,000 race-goers where a team of more than 120 chefs deliver menus and more than 6,000 fine-dining hospitality lunches.
