Racing for Rosabel is Back!

This year, we are delighted to once again support the incredible cause that is Rosabel's Rooms with their annual event - Racing for Rosabel.

The hugely popular Racing for Rosabel event has helped to raise awareness and finance for Rosabel’s Rooms - in partnership with the Irish Hospice Foundation - ever since it was set up. Now in its sixth year, it’s anticipated that lots of people will turn out in support once again – and it promises to be a fantastic event full of important awareness, fashion, racing tips, and fun.

Stay tuned for 2024 event details coming soon!
