Fakenham Racecourse is holding its race day on March 13 in aid of The Country Food Trust, the same day as the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

The Country Food Trust is a charity which feeds meals based on game meat to people in need, and has delivered more than 500,000 meals throughout the UK.

The charity, with the support of a number of Norfolk and East Anglian shoots, has delivered to food banks in Norwich, Ely, Cambridge and more.

The meet will feature six races, racing from Cheltenham, a gun dog retrieving display, and book signings from sporting artists.
