In need of a new hat for Royal Ascot? Bored of your current headwear?

Women in Racing is having a “Great Spring Hat Swap” at Ascot’s evening meeting on 9 May from 3.30pm.

Ladies can bring up to a maximum of 5 hats suitable to wear at any high-profile race day.

For each hat swapped guests will be given 4 tokens that can be used for a chance to win the hat of their choice.

The name on the first token drawn out of a pot takes the hat home. Tokens can also be purchased on the day.

All the funds raised will go to the Women in Racing Bursary programme, which provides training and education to help advance members’ careers in the racing industry.

Tickets to the hat swap cost £40 for members, and £50 for non-members to include premier admission and racing, and afternoon tea in a private room.

At the debut swap last year, £1,000 was raised.
