Putting the Fun Into Fundraising: Mitchell and Urwin Attends a Day at the Races Hosted by Keepmoat

Just a few weeks ahead of Royal Ascot and York Racecource’s action packed summer calendar,  the team at Mitchell and Urwin attended a race day in aid of PACT (Parents’ Association of Children with Tumours and Leukaemia). The event was organised and hosted by Keepmoat West Yorkshire region and took was part of York racecourse’s May race meeting.


On Thursday 16th May Richard and Susan Urwin, the M & U office employees and Contract Managers met at the Grandstand, ready for a fun filled day. The event kicked off with a private drinks reception at the Dante Suite, followed by a luxury three course lunch, afternoon tea and races. It was a great opportunity to dress up in our glad rags, and we were treated to a day of glorious sunshine. 

The event raised £14,549.92, so a big thankyou to everyone who contributed.

PACT supports the families of children being treated for cancer or leukaemia at Sheffield’s Children’s Hospital, providing days out, treats and support. The charity also helps fund research projects and equipment for the ward. The team at PACT do an outstanding job and we are delighted to support such a fantastic cause.
