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.

Aintree Grand Women’s Summit

Aintree Racecourse and Women in Racing are delighted to announce Bryony Gordon will host the 2019 Aintree Grand Women’s Summit. Telegraph Columnist and bestselling author Bryony Gordon will lead a panel of sports stars and experts on a discussion on mental health in sport.

For the 2019 Aintree Grand Women’s Summit guests will be welcomed to The O’Sullivan facility at the racecourse from 8:30am with refreshments and pastries on offer before the discussion of sport and mental health commences at 9:00am.

Once the discussion has concluded guests will have the chance to go on a course walk of the famous Grand National fences. Guests will split into small groups, each of which will be led by a well-known racing figure offering real insight into what it is like to ride around the Grand National. Retired jockey and Ambassador Katie Walsh, Aintree’s historian Jane Clarke, trainer Lawney Hill and ex-jockey Carrie Ford will lead groups on the course walk.

Guests (ticket/package dependent) will then return to Paddock Lodge for an exclusive VIP champagne reception and a buffet lunch before enjoying the afternoon of sporting action.
