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.

Launch of Horseracing Reminiscence Cards – Musselburgh and Newmarket

The Sporting Memories Foundation and Racing Welfare have worked together to create horseracing-specific memory cards for their beneficiaries, who include those at risk of social isolation and those suffering with Alzheimer’s.

These are the first horseracing memory cards and will allow those who use them to look back on, and talk about, brilliant moments in the sport from years gone-by.
