The community in Newmarket is invited to attend a special one-off masquerade ball to fundraise for a jockey charity.

Organised by the East of England Co-op Funeral Services, the event will take place on Saturday, June 9, at the Racing Centre Newmarket to raise money for the Injured Jockeys Fund.

The charity provides support to jockeys past and present.

As well as the ball, there will be live music and magic, fine Indian dining and a raffle with a selection of prizes donated by businesses from the area.

Sara Vail, funeral co-ordinator at the Newmarket branch, said: “Since opening our branch in December last year we have been keen to extend our support to the community here in Newmarket. As the home of horse racing, the Injured Jockeys Fund is the ideal charity to offer our help to.”
