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.

Community Engagement Masterclass 2018

Following on from the community engagement workshop the RCA ran alongside Racing Together in 2016 all racecourses are invited to the Racing Together Masterclass which is intended to build on the legacy of the 2016 event and help racecourses evolve their community engagement initiatives into long lasting and impactful strategies. This workshop forms part of the wider ‘Have a Great Day at the Races’ strategy led by the RCA Image of Racing group.

Taking place on Tuesday 17 April at Warwick Racecourse this workshop has been put together with racecourses at the heart of it and will provide them with tangible, worthwhile actions to take away.

The programme is an excellent mix of speakers from inside and outside the sport of racing, offering insight that will help understand best practice and improve the work racecourses already do in this area.

The cost of the day is £60pp and accommodation can be reserved at the Hilton Warwick/Stratford at £85pp B&B if required. To secure your place please contact Paul Swain ( by Monday 2 April.
