Charity partnership with Wincanton Racecourse 2015-2017

The Southern Spinal Injuries Trust has been chosen as Charity Partner of Wincanton Racecourse for two racing seasons 2015-2017, following an online vote, and selection by the Racecourse’s Charity Committee.

Wincanton is a Jockey Club Racecourse, set in the stunning Somerset countryside and hosting 17 fixtures of quality jump racing from October through to May.  Saturday racedays provide some of the best racing of the National Hunt season, and Wincanton holds a number of Premier Days and Special Events throughout the year.  With a full range of hospitality options and 9-hole golf, the Racecourse is an exceptional venue and wonderful asset for the region.

This is the first time that Wincanton Racecourse (or the Jockey Club) has established a Charity Partnership, and SSIT is honoured to have been selected.  We will be working with Wincanton’s Charity Committee to develop a varied programme of events, information and fundraising during our tenure, and look forward to meeting racegoers who want to find out more about our work.
