UNISON Race Day 2012 – Doncaster, Saturday 4 August 2012

We are delighted to confirm that the Region’s biggest annual campaign and social event, ‘UNISON For Public Services Raceday’, will again be held this year at Doncaster Racecourse on Saturday 4 August.

Since 2001 the event has grown year on year with over 3,500 members, family and friends attending last year’s event.  The Doncaster Raceday has become a main feature of UNISON’s campaign calendar providing an opportunity for members to come together and support the union’s activity to publicise our campaign for public services whilst enjoying a day out with family and friends.  Feedback from Branches and members confirms that this is a much valued and enjoyable day out.
