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.

Lingen Davies Cancer Trust Raceday

Ludlow’s beneficiary for this year’s charity fixture is the Lingen Davies Cancer Trust, based in Shrewsbury.

The charity lunch package costs £70 and includes a three course lunch in a marquee, a members day badge and race day programme. The raceday auction includes some fantastic prizes including holidays etc.

There will be 8 races in total, the last being The Charity Race for amateur riders. Each rider pledges to raise minimum £500 sponsorship.

All monies raised from the five sponsored races (plus the charity race) will go to the charity. Ludlow expect to raise a substantial amount for the charity, in previous years they have raised anywhere between £25,000-£100,000.

For more information contact Ludlow Racecourse.
