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

 

Dear All,

On behalf of Nordoff Robbins, I wanted to thank you for supporting the Sandown Park Race Day which as you know was postponed to Friday 11th September.

I doubt you will be surprised to hear that we’ve taken the difficult decision to postpone the date again, this time until next year and move back to our regular calendar slot in April…

Friday 23rd April 2021.

We have been working closely with Sandown Park Racecourse to try and make the day happen, but it has become apparent that we would not be able to deliver a safe socially distanced event this year.

I know that this is devastating for Nordoff Robbins fundraising as Events such as our Race Day are the biggest single income source and the event income is set to be down by 90%.

Nordoff Robbins is currently forecasting to lose at least £6M this year in funds due to COVID –19. This equates to at least £3M in fundraising income, £1M from delivery fees and £2M from their reserves.

With next year still looking uncertain in terms of events, plus no furlough scheme and very little scope for further costs savings without impacting on the music services, losses are likely to be even bigger.

So with this in mind we would be incredibly grateful if you would please consider one of the following options:

  1. i) to very kindly donate the cost of your table to Nordoff Robbins for 2020, and as a thank you for your generous donation we would offer you a special 50% discount on the table cost for next year;
  2. ii) or to leave your booking in place and roll it over to the 2021 event.

We know we are all experiencing tough times and are in this together, so if you were unable to consider either option please let me know and we will of course refund your money as soon as we’re able.

Now as we are facing our toughest challenge ever, we hope you’ll be able to continue to support us in whatever way you are able to at this time.

Thank you.

Best wishes,

Chris Wright CBE

Chairman, Nordoff Robbins Race Day Committee
