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.

Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards featuring the Community Award

Now in their 17th year, the awards recognise and reward the outstanding skills, commitment and contribution of over 10,000 stud and stable staff in England, Scotland and Wales.

The 2021 awards will particularly look to recognise the extraordinary challenges faced by stud and stable staff in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, both during the suspension of racing to keep yards and studs moving and since its resumption to adapt to the changes brought by the virus.

The effects of COVID-19 have also brought changes to the format of the awards and judging process, with the judging day for the finalists on Monday, 22 February 2020 likely to be conducted remotely.

The subsequent awards ceremony will be replaced by an interactive virtual event, allowing finalists to be with their yards, studs, friends and family to engage with the ceremony from a familiar location. A celebratory event is being planned for summer 2021, subject to the relevant government guidance.

Nominations will close on Tuesday, 10 November and can be made by anyone on behalf of anyone working in a yard or stud via studandstablestaffawards.co.uk.
