Volunteer today for racing charities!


Charities working across the sport are frequently in need of valuable support from volunteers – on an ongoing basis or just to support a particular event.

Volunteering is a great way to help the causes you support, and can even boost your CV and help you make new friendships.

The Little Princess Trust Charity Raceday

Hereford’s Final Raceday of the season is the Little Princess Trust Charity Raceday. A partnership which is set to raise awareness and funds for the fantastic work of the charity, at the racecourse nearest to where the charity began.

The Little Princess Trust was established in 2006 by the parents of Hannah Tarplee, their friends and Hereford Cathedral Junior School.

In 2004 Hannah was diagnosed with a Wilms tumour. Hannah loved her hair and losing it was very traumatic for her. Her parents, Wendy and Simon, searched high and low to find a wig suitable for Hannah, during her treatment. When they found one, it had a hugely positive effect on Hannah.

Tragically, Hannah passed away in 2005 and with so many kind offers of financial and practical help, Wendy and Simon felt the most fitting tribute would be to launch a charity dedicated to providing real hair wigs for children and young people.

Since then, the Little Princess Trust (LPT) has provided thousands of real hair wigs to sick children and young people, aged up to 24 years across the UK and Ireland. LPT are now in the early stages of offering our service in other areas of Europe and beyond, as well as funding cancer research.
