Fascinator wins at 8 to 1 at Pontefract Races

When Gillian from the Jolliffe Cork payroll department moved to Portugal this summer she left behind her collection of fascinators to her former colleagues.  And what better time to give them an airing than the staff summer outing to Pontefract Races a few weeks later.

Despite being outnumbered 8 to 1, Richard looks happy enough as the team contemplates the possible winners (and losers) ahead of the afternoon’s racing.

Appropriately enough it was “Ladies Day” and apart from a late shower, the sun shone brightly as the team enjoyed a fine afternoon’s hospitality provided by the Partners.

Not everyone got the better of the bookies, but a few inspired choices meant that there were more winners than losers so that the day both started and ended with a smile.
