Its Help For Heroes Family Fun Day at Redcar Races on Sunday (18 JULY) the second day of the Yorkshire Summer Racing Festival.

As well as the horse racing, there will fairground rides, bouncy castles, slides, children's entertainers, face painting and stilt walkers.

The racecourse is teaming up with Help For Heroes and Tickets For Troops, representatives of which will be racing on the day.
There will be a procession on the racecourse by standard bearers from the Royal British Legion.
The Help for Heroes charity will also be presenting a cheque for £1,500 to the Yorkshire Regiment which was kindly donated by people who attended the recent homecoming march through Redcar and Middlesbrough.
The charity and the regiment will be honoured with a race in their name – the Help For Heroes And Yorkshire Regiment Fillies’ Handicap Stakes, with soldiers presenting the trophies afterwards.
The racecourse’s general manager Amy Fair said: “We are privileged to welcome soldiers from the Yorkshire Regiment – and representatives of Help For Heroes – to our annual Family Fun Day. It’s a major occasion for us, coming as it does during the Yorkshire Summer Racing Festival.”
Community support teams from local services are also coming for the day, including Spike the road safety hedgehog, mounted police horses, Cleveland Fire & Rescue, police cars, and the dog unit.
