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’s initiative raises £35,000 for Injured Jockeys Fund

A programme instigated by Ascot whereby the racecourse agrees to donate £1 per Fine Dining customer to the Injured Jockeys Fund has help deliver a sum of £35,000 to the charity. This total was boosted by donations from guests who benefit from an informative talk by ex-jockeys.

The Ascot/ IJF Ambassador Programme was introduced in 2017 and to date over £80,000 has been raised to help the rehabilitation and care of many jockeys.
