The Betfair Tingle Creek Festival is Returning to Sandown Park Racecourse

Alongside the top quality racing on the track racegoers will have the chance to support the local community through the Gifting Programme, an opportunity for those attending to bring small items with them that can be donated across both days of the fixture. There will be donation points at the arrival desk in the main foyer for the Grandstand, so racegoers can donate their gifts when arriving on the day. Sarah Drabwell, General Manager of Sandown Park, said, “Once again, we are encouraging racegoers to bring gifts of all shapes and sizes, so we can gift these donations to all ages of children throughout the community.”

The Gifting Programme will aim to distribute the donated gifts to members of the local community as Christmas or birthday presents over the months following the Betfair Tingle Creek Festival. Working together with Christ Church, one of the two churches in the Parish of Esher, the gifts will go to Lower Green Community Centre. Located close to Sandown Park, in a low-income neighbourhood, the Centre is committed to helping the local community, with a particular focus on children and families.
