The UK-Ghana Chamber of Commerce (UKGCC), a member-based trade association that promotes bilateral trade between the UK and Ghana, will on Saturday, 18th June 2022, host the first Royal Ascot Ladies Day Event in Ghana to celebrate the iconic annual UK cultural event.

Ascot, one of Britain’s most well-known racecourses, holds a special week of races in June each year called the Royal Ascot, attended by Her Majesty the Queen.

The UKGCC is commemorating this great British Tradition in a specially curated Royal Ascot Ladies Day Experience, set up as a high tea garden party and will offer business networking opportunities with UKGCC member companies and other key stakeholders.

As a charity fundraiser, all proceeds from ticket and raffle sales will be donated to the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC) Medical and Scientific Research Centre (MSRC) Fund Raising Committee. 

According to Executive Director of the UKGCC, Adjoba Kyiamah, the donation to the UGMC MSRC Fund Raising Committee is important because “Now more than ever, we need more clinical trials in our country to help identify the best treatment for diseases in our environment. It is also an urgent imperative given the backdrop of the recent global pandemic”.

She urged the public to come and support a worthy cause.

The Royal Ascot Ladies Day event is poised to be a glorious occasion, where high fashion, glamour and millinery masterpieces take centre stage at the Polo Court Gardens at 12PM Prompt. Dress code is hats, ties and everything elegant!!
