BGC sponsor Veteran's Day at Leicester Racecourse
Last week, thanks to the BGC’s support, veterans were the guests of honour at Leicester Racecourse. They were treated to food and a drink, plus a wonderful day of racing among friends.
The day also included the running of the Betting And Gaming Council Open Hunters' Chase which was won by I'm Wiser Now.
BGC’s sponsorship of the Veterans Day builds on the work we have already done to celebrate veterans. Last June The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity and the RAF Benevolent Fund were gifted more than £400,000 after our members donated all their profits from the flagship Britannia Stakes race, held at Royal Ascot.
As a very proud former Captain in the Women’s Royal Army Corps, it gave me enormous pleasure that the Betting and Gaming Council sponsored Veterans Day at Leicester Racecourse, giving us another fantastic opportunity to salute this nation’s special ex-Forces community.
