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 Magnolia Cup

Ladies’ Day, the most glamorous day of the Festival, is the place to be and be seen. Ladies’ amateur jockey race, the Magnolia Cup, will get the day off to an impressive start, which in previous years has supported charities dedicated to helping women and children, raising over £600,000 in 2019.

The prestigious Group 1 Qatar Nassau Stakes is the highlight of the eight-race card. Previous winners include Ouija Board, Midday and Minding.
