Thirsk stages the 11th Lord's Taverners Day on Saturday (4 August), when members of the Yorkshire region of The Lord's Taverners will be joined by show-business celebrities to once again raise funds to give young people, particularly those with special needs, a sporting chance.

It's the second day of Thirsk's two-day meeting, with the North Yorkshire track also in action on Friday.

Thirsk was the birthplace in 1755 of Thomas Lord, the founder of Lord's Cricket Ground in London and The Lord's Taverners - a registered charity established in 1950 - which has raised millions of pounds for youngsters who are handicapped, as well as supporting youth cricket and the provision of equipment and coaching facilities.

Saturday's prize winner will receive an invitation for two to attend the 'Go Racing in Yorkshire' Annual Lunch in December, when the draw is made for the star prize of becoming a racehorse owner for a day next year.

Friday's action starts at 2.05 p.m. with The Peter Bell Memorial Stakes, a handicap race for sprinters over six furlongs which remembers the late Major Bell, who was a director of the racecourse for many years.
