Welcome to the Ascot Charitable Trust……
The Ascot Charitable Trust (ACT) was established following a hugely successful Charity Ball in 2001 in aid of ChildLine, which netted £55,000. It was attended by a host of celebrities, including Childline’s distinguished Chairman, Esther Rantzen.
The Trust was set up in 2002 to benefit both national and local charities, community groups and individuals with special needs, who live within the Ascot area. Our main fundraising event of the year is the Ascot Charity Ball, which has now become one of the most prestigious charitable functions in the Ascot social calendar. To date, the Trust has raised over £500,000, thanks to your generous and continued support.
We are pleased to announce that our next Charity Ball is on Saturday 20th May 2017 at Ascot Race Course and our charities will be announced soon.
We are very grateful to everyone who helped make our 2016 Ball such a huge success. We will be presenting cheques to our three chosen charities in July.
