Fakenham punter backs charity race day for air ambulance which saved his life
A punter whose life was saved when he suffered a cardiac arrest during a meeting at Fakenham Racecourse will return to the track next week as part of a major charity fundraiser.
Course officials announced plans to raise funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) at their opening meeting of the 2019-20 National Hunt racing season last month.
