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.

Ascot Racecourse Supports… a great 2018

Ascot Racecourse operate in their local community throughout the year and the short video below highlights projects supporting local charities, education and work experience programmes (featuring the charity Racing to School). A pioneering volunteering allowance for staff has been very well received and the team is active across many projects.

In December, Ascot’s website was re-launched to include a new Community Hub, on which you can find full details of the charities supported and all activities taking place.

With much more to come in 2019, keep an eye on the Ascot website and social channels to find out what they’ve got in store and how the work is making a real impact on the community.
