Sandown Race Day

With racing all day and afternoon tea, you’ll be odds on for a great day out whilst raising money for our work enriching the lives of some of the UK’s most vulnerable people.

 

A message from the Chairman of the Nordoff Robbins Race Day Committee

 

I am sure it will not have escaped your attention that the present circumstances in the country will make it impossible for us to hold the annual Nordoff Robbins Race Day which was scheduled to take place at Sandown Park on Friday April 24th.

 

Clearly, not only have all social gatherings for the foreseeable future been banned, but that also all racing in the UK has now stopped and is unlikely to restart for some considerable time. This is in line with the rest of Europe, although we did have racing behind closed doors in Ireland until yesterday, but this now itself has ceased by order of the Irish government.

 

For those of us in the racing industry we have no idea when the situation might change. For those of us in the entertainment industry we face a similar set of circumstances.

 

Although it is clearly impossible to put any date right now on when things might improve, we have reached an agreement with Sandown Park that we will hold the race day after the summer, when hopefully things are better, on Friday September 11th.

 

All reservations made for April 24th will now be valid for September 11th. It is a Friday and we will all hopefully be back on our offices by then, and if all goes to plan, this could be an excellent opportunity for us to get together in more conducive surroundings than we are facing today.

 

Clearly Nordoff Robbins, along with all charities, will be facing a difficult period in these uncertain times, and we really appreciate your help and support as always in allowing us to continue our music therapy work, which is so vital to those in need of it.

 

We look forward to seeing you on September 11th.

 

Regards

Chris Wright, CBE

Chairman, Nordoff Robbins Race Day Committee
