Pixie Lott to headline STV Appeal Racenight at Ayr Racecourse

By: Iain Ferguson

SINGING sensation Pixie Lott will headline the STV Appeal Racenight at Ayr Racecourse on Friday 22 June.

Pixie, 21, will play on an outside stage after the last race, performing her chart-topping songs which have made her a mega-star around the world.

Already in her short career she has had three number one singles – ‘Mama Do’, ‘Boys and Girls’ and ‘All About Tonight’.

Tickets for the night, which will feature six races in addition to Pixie’s performance, are on sale now and demand is expected to be huge with a crowd well in excess of 10,000 expected at the track.

Ayr Racecourse chairman Alan Macdonald (pictured above) said: “We promised a major act when the STV Appeal Racenight was first announced, and we feel that between STV and ourselves we have certainly delivered in the shape of Pixie Lott.

“For one so young, she has already established herself as one of the most successful female singers of her generation, with a string of chart successes. I am certain she will attract a vast crowd to Ayr Racecourse on the night.”

Rob Woodward (pictured above), chief executive of STV and Trustee of the STV Appeal commented: “ STV is thrilled to be working with Ayr Racecourse on what promises to be a thoroughly entertaining event. We’re delighted that Pixie Lott is performing at the STV Appeal Racenight to help raise the profile of what is an incredibly worthy cause in the STV Appeal 2012.”

The STV Appeal works closely with six major Scottish charities – Aberlour, Action for Children, Barnardo’s Scotland, Children 1st, Save The Children Scotland and One Parent Families Scotland.

It is anticipated a huge amount of money will be raised for the STV Appeal, working to help children affected by poverty in Scotland. Launched in 2011 in association with The Hunter Foundation, last year the STV Appeal raised almost £1.3 million.
