Jonjo Bright

Down Royal Racecourse is holding a Boxing Day Fundraiser for the Jonjo Bright Trust and donating all the proceeds from the sale of an entire suite's tickets to the Trust.

At 19 years old local aspiring amateur jockey Jonjo Bright was left paralysed following a point-to-point fall on March 2, 2013.

Each Jonjo Bright Boxing Day Races' ticket costs £65 and includes a drinks reception, three course meal and free £5 win bet with Sean Graham Bookmakers.

As well as the hospitality package there will be a collection at the turnstiles for those wishing to support the Trust. Proceeds will go towards helping Jonjo live the most independent and fulfilling life possible.

On the day, the seven strong racecard provides an opportunity to wrap up warm and beat the 'Boxing Day Blues' with some top quality National Hunt racing. Gates open at 11.00am with the first race kicking off at 12.25pm (approx.) and the last at 3.30pm (approx.).

Tickets can be purchased from Down Royal on 028 9262 1256 or online at
