Second prize is a Swarovski Bracelet, Swarovski earrings and £150 gift voucher from Market Cross Jewellers. And third prize is a Tommy Hilfiger watch, Les Georgette bangle, and £50 gift voucher, provided by Market Cross Jewellers.

For “little ladies”, Cinderella and her friends will be mixing with the racegoers on a day fit for a princess.

Amy Fair, Redcar’s general manager, said: “We are thrilled with the standard of prizes kindly donated by our generous sponsors and we know the ladies of the North-East will again put on a spectacular show.”

Meanwhile, last year’s Best-dressed Lady, Jodie Lawson, from Redcar, has revealed that she donated her prizes to be auctioned for a cancer charity foundation.

Jodie, pictured winning last year, raised £2,000 for the foundation after meeting the family of 10-year-old Ethan Maull, from Lincolnshire, who died of bone cancer in May 2014.

The Ethan Maull Up Yours To Cancer Foundation is raising money to build a house near Lincoln Hospital so cancer patients and their families can have a “home from home” while receiving treatment.

Jodie said: “It was a thrill to win the competition and the prizes were lovely but I wanted to use them to help towards a great cause.”
