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.

Ed Barrett Newbury Racecourse Paddock Challenge

After a life-changing fall in 2015, point-to-point rider Ed Barrett was told that he would never walk again. This Saturday 22nd September at approx. 12.25pm he will walk a lap of the Newbury Racecourse parade ring before racing without the use of his crutches to raise money for The Injured Jockeys Fund and the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation. He anticipates one lap will take him 20-25 minutes.

Please support Ed at: Fund raising page
