Macmillan Charity Raceday


Macmillan Charity Raceday at York Racecourse

Join us

Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event at York Racecourse has now raised £6.5 million for people affected by cancer. This is the perfect way to combine glamour and excitement with a chance to help a great cause, and a brilliant day out with a difference.

To purchase tickets, visit the York Raceday website.

Anyone can buy a ticket to attend the event and take part in the race excitement. As well as being able to witness some of the most exciting races that weekend at the beautiful York Racecourse, there will also be plenty of opportunities to support Macmillan. Make sure not to miss out on taking part in the Macmillan York Race day raffle where in the past top prizes have included a brand new television, a state of the art sound system, a holiday and a case of champagne. We are also running an online auction with some amazing and exclusive prizes to be won which is now live!

The weekend will culminate with the much anticipated Best Western Hotels and Macmillan Ride of their lives where 12 amateur riders will race it out in front of a packed York Racecourse all in aid of Macmillan. In 2016 the fantastic individuals who took part were able to raise £150,000 for people affected by cancer!

The number of people with cancer is growing every day. We want to reach and improve the lives of every one of those people. Join us on Saturday 17 June and enjoy a fantastic day out at the races.

You’ll be making a big difference too. Proceeds will help us ensure no one faces cancer alone and with 889 people now diagnosed every single day, the need has never been greater.

To book just call 01904 620911 or visit for further information.

Every ticket sold helps raise more money, so get your gladrags on, enjoy a fantastic day and help make a big difference.
