ASCOT moved indoors for a ladies’ day with a difference in aid of the children’s charity, the NSPCC.
Around 60 donned their finest for a fundraising lunch at The Woodlands Hotel in Spalding on Thursday when a magnificent £1,322.80 was raised.
NSPCC Spalding branch secretary Mary Mann said: “We have a lot of people who are staunch supporters and we are very grateful to them.
“After lunch we watched the racing. It was a very good day.”
Every £4 raised for the charity pays for a trained Childline counsellor to take a call from a child – and every £1,600 funds the recruitment and training of a Childline counsellor.
The branch also raised £600 from a clairvoyance evening earlier this year so it has more than paid for a counsellor.
