Register for Manor Hill House’s charity events

Local companies are being invited to attend Manor Hill House’s business to business networking breakfast and Gold Cup day event.

Both events will be set in the comfortable surrounds of Manor Hill House, with great food served and some entertaining racing pundits on hand to give behind the scenes stories from the festival and some hot tips for the week.

All profits from both of Manor Hill House’s events will be going to support two very worthwhile local charities of Midlands Air Ambulance and the Primrose Hospice.

Business Breakfast – Wednesday 15 March

Visit Manor Hill House and enjoy a hearty full English breakfast prepared by the chef whilst listening to some top racing pundits giving hot tips for the upcoming week of racing. This will be an excellent opportunity to network and build relationships with leading local business people.

The Gold Cup Day – Friday 17 March

Cheltenham Gold Cup, the pinnacle day for many on the racing calendar. Enjoy all of the excitement of a day at the races, with multiple big screens and expert racing pundits to give you their hot tips. To celebrate St Patrick’s day Manor Hill House’s chef has created an amazing menu showcasing traditional Irish themed dishes.

Invited Guest Speakers include:

Ryan Tongue – Ryan was always going to venture into the ‘Sport of Kings’, first becoming an accomplished amateur jockey and now a pundit and leading betting analyst.

Tom Gretton – Tom is a local dual-purpose trainer based just outside Inkberrow, Worcestershire. He has enjoyed great success bringing on youngsters to win enviable prize money along with the continued development of the more established horses on the yard.

Previously worked as Assistant Trainer to Henry Daly, John Quinn, Peter Beaumont and Francois Doumen in France.

David Crosse – Champion amateur jockey in 2001/2, David has been a professional jump jockey for 15 years riding nearly 200 winners under rules. Now often hosting racing days he is also much involved in coaching younger jockeys.

John Smith-Maxwell – One of the top young point to point jockeys, he plans to emulate his sister, Alexandra Dunn, by training full time. His early successes have been based on the family farm at Himbleton in Worcestershire.

If you can’t attend but would like to support these fantastic local charities, there are still plenty of ways to get involved. Companies can donate a prize to the event raffle or auction, advertise their business in the Manor Hill House race card or sponsor a race.

There will also be an opportunity to send in ‘bids’ for the event auction.
