On Wednesday 27 November, Keith Chegwin will visit Swindon Greyhounds’ Abbey Stadium to meet and congratulate the winner of the second race.
Race 2, which begins at 6:44pm, has been renamed The Cheggers Chase in celebration of Swindon’s favourite pantomime star.
The Wyvern Theatre has been selling tickets for the races on Wednesday 27 November for an entertaining charity race night, with all proceeds donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Since October 2010 HQ Theatres, alongside its sister company Qdos Entertainment, has been raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital’s Theatres for Theatres Appeal.
To date we have raised £431,000 for the appeal which aims to build new state-of-the-art operating theatres at the hospital, which treats very sick children across the UK.
“We’re thrilled that Swindon Greyhounds are supporting the Wyvern Theatre’s fundraising efforts by hosting this charity race night,” said Marketing Manager Richard Loftus. “I’m particularly looking forward to The Cheggers Chase.”
“Pantomime and the Greyhound racing have been entertaining the people of Swindon for many years,” said the marketing director for Swindon Greyhounds, Jo Clarke.
“We’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with the Wyvern Theatre, another local business, to fundraise and support Great Ormond Street Hospital.”
