A HARTLEPOOL charity has teamed up with a racecourse to help raise awareness and money at the same time.

Miles for Men will be welcomed to Sedgefield Racecourse tomorrow to raise funds for cancer charities across the UK.

Jane Sickling, Miles for Men treasurer, said; “After visiting Sedgefield Racecourse in 2013 and being shown around we could see the potential of trying to raise awareness, funds and have a great fun day too.

“We are looking forward to holding our second Miles for Men Raceday later this week. “This year’s intention as well as donating to Cancer Research UK is to raise an additional £10,000 for a brand new room which is equipped for the new wing at Hartlepool Hospice.”

Jill Williamson, Executive Director at Sedgefield Racecourse said; “We are honoured to welcome Miles for Men to the racecourse for a second year and we wish them a successful and profitable day.

“This will be a perfect opportunity to raise awareness for the charity and raise much needed funds.”

Tickets can be booked in advance for £13 or on the day for £16.
