Hats off to fund-raisers

Waiting for Video...

Shaw Hill Golf Club proved to be the next best place to Royal Ascot when it held its own ladies’ day.

Around 90 women wore their finest dresses, hats and fascinators on Thursday as they got right into the spirit of the event.

There was live coverage of the races at Royal Ascot, a high-profile meeting on the racing calendar attended by the Queen.

There were also stands, a three-course lunch and a balloon raffle, with prizes inside the balloons.

The ladies’ day was held to raise money for The Legacy Rainbow House, in Mawdesley, a charity working with children with acquired brain injury, multiple disabilities and complex health needs .

More than £1,000 was raised.

Tricia Hounslow, the charity’s press and publicity officer, said: “We are absolutely made up to raise £1,000 from the day.

“It’s wonderful. Everybody was very generous.

“It was a wonderful day. The sun was shining. Lots of women sat out and had a good time.

“There was a really exciting atmosphere all the way through the afternoon.”
