The quintessential English countryside is something that we can take for granted, but without the grants that contribute to the many projects across the UK raised by the Prince’s Countryside Fund we would not be able to enjoy their beauty as much as we do.
The Fund provides grants of up to £50,000 to help improve service provisions and support enterprise in rural areas. It supports farming businesses, which are essential to our economic growth and provide training and education to young people instilling the value of one of our most treasured assets.
In support of this worthy cause, Ascot is holding an inaugural race day which will include countryside inspired activities for the whole family, sheep dog, duck and falconry displays, pony rides, climbing walls, a petting farm and, of course, highly competitive racing. All proceeds raised will go to this fantastic cause. Visit here for more information on the Prince’s Fund and for more details of Ascot’s fantastic family day visit here for their official website.
Close to Ascot, the Sir Christopher Wren Hotel and Spa offers sumptuous European dining in our Thames View Restaurant, followed by evening cocktails overlooking the River Thames at night, a great way to end a spectacular day
