Made in Chelsea star Georgia Toffolo wins £6,500 at Ascot and vows to give it to charity after £37k Cheltenham win | The Sun

THE Royal Ascot has been a happy hunting ground for Georgia Toffolo after the former Made in Chelsea star won £6,500 on a bet on Friday.

The lucky punter, 27, has form for winning big on horse races after bagging £37,000 on a bet at Cheltenham.

Toffolo put that win down to "beginner's luck" but it seems the former reality TV star has a knack for the races.

In the 2.30 Albany Stakes Toffolo backed a reverse first two on favourite Mawj and Meditate, with the latter coming home first at 5/2.

And with Mawj finishing second Toffolo was able to collect £65,000 from her £1000 stake.

A delighted Toffolo revealed she plans to donate all of her winnings to St George's Hospital Charity.

"They have one of the largest children’s hospitals in the country and they’re in desperate need of space.

"I read that the staff there have given up their changing facilities and staff rooms to make way for more beds. Anyway, lovely to have a winner and £6500 to a brilliant charity."
