Equestrian artist Jacquie Jones will donate one of her paintings as a raffle prize to raise money for a youth sports programme.

Money raised from the sale of raffle tickets will go to Street Sports, which is run by Anglia Community Leisure (ACL) and delivers free sports sessions in Newmarket, Mildenhall, Red Lodge and Brandon.

Jacquie will create the artwork at Newmarket Leisure Centre on Saturday from 10am.

Keiran Williams, Street Sports coordinator, said: “Local businesses have been extremely generous. We hope to raise significant funding for the programme while offering a range of great prizes.

“I would like to thank Jacquie and all of the other companies that have donated prizes for their support.”

Other raffle prizes will include a sports massage package from the Sports Injury Clinic and a year’s membership at ACL.

Raffle tickets go on sale for £1 on Saturday at leisure centres in Newmarket, Mildenhall and Brandon.
