999 Family Race Day

A fly-in by Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance will be among the attractions at the Kent Messenger 999 race day at Folkestone next month (September 2nd).

Racegoers at the emergency services theme day will get the chance to see the life-saving charity helicopter and meet the pilot, doctor and critical care paramedic.

There will be emergency service displays and re-enactments from Kent Fire & Rescue Service, South East Coast Ambulance Service (SECAmb), British Divers Marine Rescue and Folkestone Coastguard.

Other demonstrations will be held by Kent Fire & Rescue Service Bikes Team, the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART), Kent County Council Road Safety Team and Kent and Medway Safety Partnership.

There will also be family entertainment including a Wii entertainment tent, balloon modeling, face-panting, bucking Bronco, an inflatable moon walker and a visit from Air Ambulance mascot Dr Dudley.

Gates open at noon when there will be a fly-in by the helicopter, subject to emergency call-outs, and the first of seven races get underway at 2pm. Afterwards there will be live music from the Counterfeit Notes.

Tickets booked in advance start at £14 and can be booked online at www.folkestone-racecourse.co.uk or by calling 01303 405801.

Funds raised on the day will go to Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance which relies almost entirely on public donations.
