Purpose:

The Charity Tea Room at Kelso Races is a unique feature to the racecourse. It has been open since the 1980's and gives local and national charities the chance to showcase the great work they do. The tea room offers a variety of hot and cold refreshments, all lovingly prepared by the charity of the day with all profits going directly to that charity. With on average 14 race meetings a year, this offers support to many important charities over the year.
