Macmillan Charity Raceday


Macmillan Charity Raceday at York Racecourse

Join us

We would like to give a huge thank you to everyone who attended York Raceday fundraising event on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th June.

Through your kind generosity, we raised an incredible £470,000 – which will help Macmillan to provide emotional, financial, medical and practical support to the growing number of people living with cancer in the Yorkshire area and across the UK. We simply could not have done this without the thousands of racegoers, dedicated fundraisers and invaluable support from local and UK wide businesses.

With the final total still to be decided, there is still time to support our extremely brave amateur riders; who took part in the final race - the ‘Best Western and Macmillan Ride of Their Lives’, which was a fitting end to a wonderful day.
