A charity event celebrating Royal Ascot Ladies Day raised £1,000 for Forest Holme Hospice.
More than 40 local business women donned their finest hats for the fifth annual event to be organised by Ellis Jones Solicitors at Lake Yard, Poole.
Partners Lauren Day and Kate Brooks joined other female staff from the firm as well as guests from a range of companies and organisations.
A Tote betting system was arranged allowing bets to be placed on the races, raising money for our work.
There were also contests for the best fascinator and correctly guessing the colour of The Queen’s Ascot outfit.
Kate Brooks said the event atmosphere between the high-flying female guests was “buzzing”.
She added: “We raised a record £1,000 for Forest Holme Hospice, demonstrating how you can support a fantastic local charity while also having a great time and making long-lasting business connections.”
We are so grateful to Ellis Jones Solicitors for their continued support of our hospice. The money raised will provide compassionate care for local people living with the advanced stages of cancer and other life limiting illnesses. Thank you.
