  • Partnership will raise awareness of Brainkind brand and raise money for the outside space of the hospital

We are a new York Racecourse Community Partner and join Clifton Green Primary School and The Clifton Academy who are established partners.

Having just launched a new fundraising strategy we are keen to develop partnerships in our communities for the people we support in all our services across the UK.

Being successful in our application to be a Community Partner for the York Racecourse has really kick started our fundraising activities in York. It means we will be able to directly fundraise during one of the race meetings but also gives us the opportunity to spread the word about Brainkind and in particular our new service in York.

We are delighted to be selected as a Community Partner for the York Racecourse this year.  Our new hospital, the Brainkind Neurological Centre York, overlooks the racecourse and it is an honour to be able to work with such a prestigious organisation in York.

We hope this partnership helps us to raise awareness of our work but also specifically we want to raise funds to develop and maintain the outside space of the new hospital.”

Tracy Calcraft, Head of Fundraising Brainkind

The team at the racecourse are really looking forward to supporting our nearest neighbour who do such important work.  Having a personal insight into the challenges faced by those recovering from long term brain injury, Brainkind is a charity that particularly resonates with me.

Phil Atkinson, Head of Operations York Racecourse

It is amazing to see how quickly the people we support and our staff have settled into the Brainkind Neurological Centre York.  We all look out onto York Racecourse every day so being chosen as a Community Partner has created a real buzz. Our staff, people we support and their families are also really excited about getting involved in fundraising too.

Sarah Chadwick, Manager Brainkind Neurological Centre York
