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 Property Race Day

The Property Race Day is now celebrating its fourteenth year, having raised over £2.5 million for children’s charities. Beneficiaries to date include; SOS Children’s Villages, Hope & Homes, LandAid, Starlight, Daktari Bush School, Plan UK, Project Hope UK, The Children’s Trust, WellChild, Sebastian’s Action Trust, Pepo La Tumaini, Downright Excellent, Child Bereavement UK and Trusts for African Schools. The day has quickly established itself as a key date in the property calendar. Next year’s event will take place on Friday 10th July, 2020, where our principal aim is to continue raising funds for extremely well deserving charities.

The event will take place at the world-famous Ascot Racecourse in the main Pavilion. This offers the perfect opportunity for networking within the sector, whilst, the free CS2 Property Race Day Train will take guests directly from London Waterloo to Ascot.

The day will include a champagne reception, seven races, a live and silent auction and a post racing live band.
