**ASCOT CHARITABLE TRUST RAISES OVER £40,000 FOR CHARITY **
Welcome to the Ascot Charitable Trust!
The Ascot Charitable Trust is delighted to announce that the 2017 Annual Charity Ball raised in excess of £40,000 for charity.
A fabulous evening was had by all on May 20th at the Ascot Charity Ball held at the Pavilion, Ascot Racecourse, with great entertainment supplied by the Ratpack Tribute along with many fabulous items to be won in the magnificent luxury prize draw, silent and main auctions.
At a recent presentation, cheques were distributed to Prostate Cancer UK, Helen and Douglas House and East Berkshire MS Society with a further £5k to be distributed to local deserving causes over the next few months.
The Ascot Charitable 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. This is a prestigous black tie event held at the world famous Ascot Racecourse. To date the Trust has raised over £500,000 for a variety of charities and is exceptionally grateful to all our supporters for their amazing continued generosity.
Over the years the Ascot Charitable Trust has been delighted to provide entertainment by a number of fantastic celebrities and performers including Tony Hadley, Go West, String Fever and the Three Waiters. We have also been extremely lucky to have had Adjer Brown as our comedian auctioneer – always providing a light hearted approach to our fund raising activities.
The Ascot Charitable Trust would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who helped make our 2017 Ball such a success .
We are currently considering charities for our 2018 ball so please do contact us if you have a charity you wish to nominate.
