A lucky day at the races for Ford & Stanley and our guests
Celebrating women working in rail, Ford & Stanley invited some of our valued clients to Doncaster Races for St Leger’s festival - Ladies Day.
Held on Thursday 13th September 2018 and joined by some of our valued clients and contacts within the industry, Ford & Stanley dressed to impress in our Sunday best and headed North for the day.
We departed from Derby at 10:00, arriving in Doncaster with plenty of time to enjoy a glass of bubbly or two at The Earle of Doncaster before walking over to the Racecourse – luckily for us, the weather held out all day, as we are pretty sure fascinators aren’t 100% waterproof… !!
It’s safe to say we were blown away with the view from our hospitality box as we toasted our champagne and of course – placed our bets!
With 7 races in total, tension reached it's peak for the final race at 17:10. The race was won by 'Picture No Sound' - a lucky horse for a couple on our table ! After a delicious array of food and drink throughout the day, we congratulated those who won, before returning back to Derby (not including those who stayed on to watch Martin Kemp DJ - who added a touch of "Gold" to what was already a fabulous day).
A great day had by all !
“Many thanks for a lovely day” Judith Doran – NCHSR
Ashleigh Lancaster, Marketing Executive and organiser of the event said “Corporate events of all kinds are a brilliant way to connect with clients outside of the office environment and strengthen our already outstanding relationships – however, there was something special about this event... With the lack of female orientated events and client get-togethers in the industry – it was about time we did something different! Thank you to all who made it such an enjoyable day.”
